Signs You Need a New Furnace

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.

  • Your furnace is more than 15-20 years old
  • Your furnace needs major repairs
  • 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

Comprehensive Furnace Maintenance

Avoid the need for furnace repair by keeping the system in good running order with regular maintenance. Whether you are a home or business owner, you need to pay close attention to your heating system and that starts with how your furnace is installed. The most efficient way to create savings on your future energy bills is for your furnace to be installed by a certified, professional HVAC installer like each and every technician is at Tri-City.

Here are some DIY furnace maintenance tips to try:

  • Clean the chamber. Turn off the furnace and cut off its fuel by turning off the fuel supply valve. Remove the door to the combustion chamber and give it a quick inspection. Vacuum away any soot and debris while keeping an eye out for any holes or cracks. If there are any, cover them with foil tape.
  • Vacuum the blower & ductwork. Open the door to the blower compartment and vacuum the inside just as you did for the combustion chamber. Likewise, cover any holes or cracks with foil tape. Inspect the ductwork leading to and from the furnace as well. Any small holes will lead to air leaks, which will then lead to higher energy bills and an overworked heating system. These leaks must be fixed ASAP.
  • Replace filters. Filters are placed in HVAC systems to help collect dust, dirt, and allergen particles circulating through the air. After about a month or so, air filters will need to be replaced because they will become clogged with all of these particulates. Purchase high-quality air filters and keep them stocked in your home so you can easily change them out once per month.

While cleaning your furnace, here are the few things you’ll want to call in a pro for:

  • Excess soot accumulating inside the combustion chamber
  • A pilot flame that is no longer blue
  • Sudden shut-off or short cycling

The Importance of Cleaning Your Furnace

Your furnace should be cleaned every year, preferably before the winter season begins in earnest. In particular, the older your furnace or heating system is, the more concerned you should be about its cleanliness as this directly affects the system’s ability to maintain a consistent level of heat that reaches all interior areas of your home. Homes and commercial structures that have an oil burning furnace will also need to have their fuel lines professionally cleaned out. This removes oil and waste left in the lines from the prior heating season. Only after the fuel lines have been cleaned, will one of our HVAC technicians restart that furnace’s pilot light.

Is Your Furnace Making the Indoor Air Dry?

Our HVAC technicians are also able to discuss the use of a furnace humidifier as an addition to your heating system. While they are installing a natural gas furnace, our technical team will routinely make sure all connections are secure between the gas or electric lines that complete its configuration. This insures that your new furnace will be able to begin heating your home in the safest and most efficient manner.

Furnace Replacement in Milford, CT

The installation of an entirely new furnace is often necessary to not only maintain proper heating but for efficient energy costs as well. At optimal levels, a newly installed furnace delivers a good return on investment for homeowners as they are able to keep their utility bills at lower levels.

When you call Tri-City, a member of our technical team will visit your home or business at your convenience for a consultation, and to take measurements for the purchase of a new furnace unit. Our technicians have the ability to measure the “load calculation” to make sure whatever system you utilize is working at peak efficiency.
