Furnace Replacement in Indianapolis, IN
Your furnace is probably the essential appliance in your home when the cold Indiana winters arrive. Imagine that first freezing cold day or night, and you go to turn on your furnace, and it doesn’t work! You need your furnace so your family is safe and warm, but they tend to wear out over time. Mister Quik Home Services offers furnace replacements.
What’s the Life Expectancy of a Furnace?
With proper maintenance, a furnace could last a few decades. To get the most out of your heating system, you should have your furnace inspected once a year, change the filters often, and clean the burners. You should schedule your tune-up before the winter months, so you’re not stuck in the cold. If you have been throwing money into it for frequent repairs, you may need to replace it sooner.
Should I Replace My Furnace?
Doesn’t it always seem like if something is going to break down, it’s going to be when you need it the most? Be proactive and give us a call before it happens! Have your furnace inspected by an expert BEFORE you need it.
There are also several warning signs that you need to consider a furnace replacement, such as the following.
- You need constant repairs
- Dust, dirt, and rust around the registers
- Increased utility bills
- Cracks, rust, or corrosion in or out of the unit
- Buzzing or rattling sounds
- Frequent cycling
- Uneven heating
- Higher humidity when using your furnace
If your furnace is near the end of its lifespan, these could be indicators you need a furnace replacement. If your furnace is not very old, it could just mean it needs a tune-up. Either way, Mister Quik Home Services in Indianapolis will get the problem fixed.
What Are the Types of Furnaces?
There are several different types of furnaces, depending on whether your home has ductwork or not or the amount of money you want to invest. The differences are in the fuel they use and their performance in freezing temperatures.
The most common type of furnace is one that burns natural gas. They are inexpensive to operate and are efficient even in the coldest temperatures. We see many homes in Indianapolis and surrounding areas with natural gas furnaces.
If your home does not have a natural gas furnace setup, you will need to have ductwork run throughout your home and natural gas lines run to your home. These types of furnaces have a high negative impact on the environment.
An electric furnace replacement is the least expensive to replace, the easiest to maintain, but the costliest to run. Homes in warmer climates usually have these types of furnaces.
Coal furnaces burn coal or wood. While cheap to run, there is quite a bit of maintenance required. You can typically find these types of furnaces in rural areas.
Propane furnaces work best in areas where other fuels are expensive or scarce. Furnaces that run on this type of fuel are usually compact. If you must, you can easily convert natural gas furnaces to propane.
Another option is a mini-split system which combines heating and cooling in one. These do not require ductwork and save space in smaller homes by being bolted directly to the wall. Mini-split systems are a bit pricier than other heating appliances.
Geothermal and Solar Furnaces
If you want to go green and save money in the long run, geothermal and solar furnaces are for you. Upfront, you will be paying a larger price than other furnaces cost, but you will recoup those costs over the system’s lifespan.
As you can see, there are many types of furnaces to choose from. Mister Quik Home Services in Indianapolis has knowledgeable professionals to help you with your needs, whether it is electric, specialty, propane, or a gas furnace replacement.
Can I Get a Furnace Warranty to Alleviate Replacement Costs?
Yes. If your furnace breaks down due to wear and tear, a warranty can significantly reduce the cost for repair or replacement. The cost to replace a furnace can be up to thousands after including appliance costs, materials, and labor.
If your furnace is still working but nearing the end of its life, you may want to consider a home warranty. Amazon offers home warranties with add-ins. Other options are Choice Home Warranty and American Home Shield. You can buy these warranties on furnaces regardless of their age.
