Has a sudden drop in temperature made it very apparent that your heating system is not running quite right? Or maybe you’ve noticed that your heating costs are increasing.
What are some other signs that your furnace may not be running at its peak? When is retiring and replacing your furnace the best option?
See the top 5 warning signs your furnace may need replacing:
- Consider the age of your furnace
Furnaces have a life span of around 15 to 20 years. If your equipment fits into that range, it could require continual repairs. Like all equipment, technology changes and advances. A furnace with newer technology and features can improve efficiency, leading to cost savings.
- Repairs are becoming routine
Older furnaces may need multiple repairs but, like an old car, it can be more cost effective to replace. Not to mention less of a hassle! Is it time to retire the furnace and bring in a shiny new model?
- Difficulty controlling the comfort levels in your home
Do you find you are constantly adjusting the temperature in your home? Or maybe some rooms are colder then others? Your furnace may not be distributing air properly. Dry or stuffy air can also be uncomfortable and could be a sign your furnace is not performing properly.
- Strange Noises
Any abnormal rattling, banging or humming sounds? Does it sound like it runs excessively? Maybe you’ve become so used to the noise you don’t notice it anymore, but it could be a sign that it needs to be replaced.
- Higher heating costs
If your furnace is not running efficiently it may need to run longer to provide you with the same amount of heat as years past. Why not add to the investment of your home with a new furnace instead of giving the money to a gas company!
Replace your furnace on your terms instead of feeling rushed to decide when you don’t have heat!
