Keeping the mechanical equipment in your home up to date is important. Newer equipment is less likely to break down, more likely to run more efficiently, reduce operating costs, and it is an investment in the value of your home. However, if your furnace is nearing the end of its life expectancy, it may be a good time to consider a replacement. At Tiger Temperature, we’ve helped hundreds of customers update their old furnace equipment with new furnace installation in Thibodaux.

Top Signs You May Need Furnace Replacement
Knowing when to replace an old furnace can be a tricky decision. New furnace installations can be expensive so it’s not a decision to be taken lightly. Some of the signs that a new furnace should be in your future include:
- Age: Most furnaces are expected to last 15 to 25 years. After 15 years, efficiency decreases and repair costs can rise. Once your furnace hits this age, you may need to consider a replacement.
- High Repair Costs: Furnaces can usually be repaired when they have trouble. However, as more parts break down, it may be cheaper, in the long run, to replace the whole unit instead of paying for parts and labor for repairs.
- Unsafe Machinery: As furnaces age, it becomes more likely that they will cause safety hazards. Some of the hazards include fire, explosion, and carbon monoxide.
- High Utility Bills: The truth is that furnaces only get less efficient with time. This causes gas bills to grow. At some point, it becomes cheaper to install a new furnace instead of paying for high utility costs.
Benefits of Installing a New Furnace
New furnace equipment adds value to your home while making you more comfortable. One of the best investments you can make in your home is a new, high-efficiency furnace from Tiger Temperature. A new furnace is a financially lucrative decision because it can restore efficiency that is naturally lost from an old furnace. The most common form of furnace installed in the last few decades was rated at 80% efficiency. Over time that number will decline and high utility bills will result. Newer models of gas furnaces can see efficiencies as high as 98%. This means that a new furnace will pay for itself in savings in just a few seasons.
Newer furnaces will also be less likely to break down and need repairs. One of the unexpected costs of operating a furnace is repairs and the bills can add up quickly. Installing a new furnace will keep repair bills low and increase the reliability of your heater. By choosing Tiger Temperature as your furnace contractor, you can maintain the warranties on all of your equipment.
