A broken furnace is one of the worst things you can face as a homeowner. When the temperature drops on a cold winter night, going without a reliable source of heat for even a few hours can leave your home uncomfortable and even unhealthy for those who are sensitive to temperature changes. While small heaters may help a little bit, they’re no substitute for a powerful central furnace that can keep your entire home comfortable all winter long.

Common Problems that Require Furnace Repair
Furnaces are built to be reliable and long-lasting, but that doesn’t mean they’re indestructible or immune to problems. Over time, wear and tear causes parts to break, and broken parts cause your system to stop working. It’s impossible to avoid your system experiencing a problem—it will happen eventually, no matter how much you care for your equipment. What type of problem occurs, though, is another question altogether.
Our team can find and fix any type of problem with your furnace, including:
- Dirty or clogged air filter
- Heat exchanger damage
- Ignition system failure
- Improper airflow in ductwork
- Limit switch malfunction

Do You Need a New Furnace?
One of the most common questions we receive from customers who need their furnace fixed is “Can I repair my furnace or should I just replace it with a new one?” It’s true that furnace repair is not always the most practical answer—if your furnace is old and your repair is expensive, you may be better off replacing it completely. However, not all problems require replacement, and knowing when to pull the trigger on this major service is difficult for the average homeowner. At Roth Heating & Cooling, Plumbing, Electrical, Drain Services, our team is here to help, and will always suggest what we believe to be the best solution for your needs.
Here are just a few of the signs that your furnace may be falling apart and need replacement:
- Your energy bills have skyrocketed and you can’t find any indication as to why
- Certain rooms in your home are way too hot or too cold compared to the rest of your house
- Your humidity is out of control, leading to musty smells or uncomfortable spaces
- The cost of your furnace repair is a significant portion of what it would cost to replace your system completely.
ENERGY STAR, A U.S. Department of Energy and E.P.A. combined-program suggests considering a new furnace if your current unit is 15 years or older. At around 15 years of age, the advancement of HVAC technology combined with losses in efficiency and performance in your current system make investing in a new solution a much more lucrative choice.
