Tell-Tale Signs You Need A New Furnace

Tell-Tale Signs You Need A New Furnace

The winter weather is finally on its way. The days of warm temperatures are over and it’s time to kick on that furnace. The last thing you want to happen when the cold weather arrives is for your furnace to break down. If it is showing any tell-tale signs now, consider having it inspected, repaired, or replaced.

Age
The average lifespan for a furnace is roughly 20 years. You may be able to get a few more years out of it if it has been regularly maintained and inspected. Figure out how old your current furnace is; if it’s around this age then consider having it professionally inspected. This way you will be able to see what replacement options you should consider.

Repair History
When parts of your furnace need replacement, the entirety of the unit will need to be replaced within a few years time. If one piece breaks down, it is common that others will start to follow suit. If your furnace has had a major repair, or needs one currently, start doing research on a new furnace for the immediate future.

Other Signs

  • Increased energy bills without raising the heat.
  • Uneven heating of your home without the use of zone heating.
  • Loud banging, buzzing, or rattling noises coming from the furnace.
  • Increased dust particles circulating throughout the air in your home.
  • Rust, cracks, holes, etc. on the furnace itself.

Many people don’t realize they need a new furnace until it finally breaks down on them. Be on the lookout for these tell-tale signs, while also regularly performing maintenance on your furnace.
