When is it time to stop repairing my furnace and start shopping for a new energy-efficient furnace?

DE, PA, and MD residents encounter brutal winters. Last winter was one of the worst on record putting many people in danger. That’s why your furnace is one of the most important investments and appliances in your home. As a homeowner, you should be educated about your furnace.

In this blog post, we want you to know when it may be time to repair or purchase a new furnace before you are in an emergency situation on a cold winter’s night.  Warning signs that your furnace is about to become extinct.

  • Your furnace is more than 15 years old. The life expectancy of home furnaces averages between 16 and 20 years (that’s 1 million in dinosaur years). If your furnace is approaching this age or older, you should begin shopping. Make it a planned home improvement rather than emergency call in subfreezing temperatures. If your oil furnace is 12 years old or younger, and your furnace is properly maintained and protected, you should be safe.
  • Your repair costs are 50% of the cost of a replacement. As your furnace ages, you may start playing the replace-a-part game. Each year you need another part replaced or repaired. If you catch yourself spending a lot of time and money keeping that old furnace running, consider a new oil, or natural gas furnace in DE, PA, or MD.
  • Your efficiency is lower than 56% AFUE. This lower efficiency eats more fuel and costs more money to generate heat.
  • You are experiencing a spike in your energy bills. Your old furnace may not be performing properly. Furnaces lose efficiency as they age. This increases your need for (unnecessary) fuel deliveries. Consider replacing your furnace with a more energy-efficient model.
  • Your furnace is roaring. Well, roaring may be a slight embellishment. However, if your furnace is making strange noises like banging, popping, or squealing, this is the typical of an aging system and a sign that it’s near the end of its life.
  • If that old furnace has stopped working entirely, it’s time for a new, high-efficiency furnace. Our professional staff is fully trained to install, maintain, and repair oil, natural gas, propane gas, and electric heating systems. This includes hot air, hot water, boiler, heat pump, and water heaters (both traditional tank and modern tankless on-demand water heaters). We’ve been successfully installing central heating solutions for over 65 years.

“Our heater recently stopped working and Hillside immediately sent people out. It was Christmas week and the temperature in the teens. They explained why our very old heater could not be fixed. They had a new one installed the next day. The people working were polite, pleasant and informative. Everything was done very, very well and the cost was quite reasonable! We always knew Hillside as a good company. We have been customers for awhile, but this service was very, very good. Thank you, everyone at Hillside and especially all the technicians that installed our new heater. We tell everyone we know about this company.”

“Had an issue with the whistle in the vent pipe of my oil tank. The problem was taken care of extremely fast and in a very professional manner. Thanks to your delivery driver for not pumping the oil the first time and reporting the issue as is required by your company’s policy. Also thanks out to your service personnel for the REPAIR and the quick return of the original driver to finish filling our oil tank. This is why we continue to be long time Hillside Oil customers. Again thanks for taking care of us.”
