At Twintech Heating & Cooling, repairing furnaces is our bread and butter! However, there comes a point in every furnace's life where even regular maintenance and the most skillful repairs can't save it. Here are some signs that your furnace might need to be replaced:
No matter how well you take care of them, every furnace will inevitably reach their retirement age. This is on average 18 to 20 years, but if your furnace is older and still works, then don’t worry! If it still runs perfectly and isn’t too costly to maintain, then age is just a number.
Rising Heating Bills/Furnace Efficiency
If you start to notice a rise in your heating bills over time, then even if the furnace is working fine, it might not be the most cost-efficient idea to keep it. Instead, it may be best to buy a new furnace that is far more efficient and should come with a good warranty too.
Unusual Noises and Physical Wear
If your furnace is extra loud, hums or buzzes even after a repair, then this may be a sign of cracks or other issues with the build of the furnace. Rust is another good sign of physical damage that can affect the performance and life of your unit.
Issues with Heating
One big reason for replacement is if your furnace isn’t heating your home right. Two signs are if the rooms in your home are being heated unevenly and if you’ve got humidity issues, such as dry air. But these issues could also be a duct issue, so contact your HVAC technician about this before replacing your furnace entirely.
Note: On their own, these signs may not be the best reasons to replace your furnace, so weigh them together when making a decision.
So, if you need a furnace assessment or replacement this winter, give Twintech a call to talk to an experienced representative. You can even schedule a free consultation to have a technician look at your furnace and help you come up with the best plan of action.

When our old oil furnace finally broke down we decided it was time to finally convert to natural gas and finally install central air conditioning at the same time. Knowing it was going to be a significant investment for us, we wanted to make the right choice. Twintech came highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. From the first contact with the salesperson, until the final touches on the installation, we were so pleased with their service. Everyone from the company was so friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Best of all, the cost was very competitive. We would certainly recommend Twintech to anyone requiring HVAC work in their home.
Mitch from Twintech came out for our annual furnace inspection. We found him to be friendly, conscientious & he left the work area clean. We were also very impressed with the thoroughness of the job he did. This is the 2nd job weve had Twintech do for us & have been very happy with the results for each. We highly recommend this company. Thank you, Mitch, Dave & Greg.
Work was done on schedule, professionally, according to quote and with minimal inconvenience to building users. Very happy with the end result. The only area for improvement from my experience - need more timely quoting process.
The team was great! Very knowledgeable, professional and extremely helpful. A few days after install the unit didnt seem to be working, user error, but within minutes of contacting them..on a Saturday.. a tech was on the phone troubleshooting with us. I highly recommend Twintech for your cooling or heating needs. They stand by their products and a pleasure to deal with.
During the hottest week in the summer our old A/C decided to call it quits. I called Twintech Heating & Cooling after receiving a referral from a family member; came highly rated for being an honest, family-run business, who appreciates their customers. Dave was able to accommodate my hectic schedule and book a late evening appointment to walk through the specifics. Greg and Mitch arrived exactly on time a few days later, were very polite and friendly, and within a couple of hours had a new unit up and running. I also received a follow-up call to ensure we were happy with the Amana.
They were on time and very professional. I'm so glad I decided to go with Twintech, thanks!
Timely and appreciated - this was during the hottest days this year when our Air and Furnace way.
Efficient. Professional. No BS or overselling. What was promised, was delivered at a cost-effective price point.
Down to earth.
Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors to the house for the installers to remove the old furnace and install a new furnace.
I also made recommendations of the tankless water heater that we had installed and items to address. We did not know they also installed tankless water heaters.
Price was not the cheapest nor the most expensive of my quotes. It's the quality of the installation that makes for a good AC system. The twins' knowledge & professionalism was evident in the small details:
Very clean work. Greg made sure that the refrigerant level & temperature were correct. They reinstall the insulation & vapor barrier around the wall. The outside electrical cords were secured to the wall. Proud to support this local company. Thank you.
Great team of guys came to do the work. Very professional. Arrived on time worked very efficiently and were very clean. They answered any questions we had without hesitation. The air conditioner works great and is so quiet. I highly recommend them and they don't try to up-sell anything right from the start.
