Time to Say Goodbye
Before the weather outside gets frightful, you should start thinking about how you’re going to keep warm when it does. If you have a furnace, you’re probably thinking you’re all set, but not so fast.
Furnaces, like everything else, don’t last forever. You don’t want this to be the time of year when yours decides it’s ready to go. Fortunately for you, there are normally some warning signs you can look out for that let you know when it’s time to put in a call for a furnace replacement.
- Age: Furnaces normally last 16-20 years. If yours falls within that, or is older, you never know when it’s going to stop working so you might want to get it replaced before it does.
- Strange noises: You may think it’s normal, but it’s not. If you hear something abnormally loud coming from your furnace, that’s not a good sign.
- Higher gas and electric bills: It could be because of higher rates, but if yours is the only one going up it’s probably a furnace issue. As they age, they lose efficiency which means they’re working harder and running longer, but still providing the same amount of heat. This results in you paying more money.
- More dust: Older units can’t moisturize and clean the air in your home so if you see more dust than usual, cracked furniture, or drooping plants it’s more than likely your aging system.
