“Is it Time to Replace My Furnace?”

Posted by

All summer long you ignored it.  After all, what was the point?  You were just happy to be spending more time outdoors where the sun supplied all the heat you needed.

We’re talking about your furnace, of course.  That vital piece of mechanical equipment you rely on to the extreme to keep you and your family safe and warm all winter long.  But like any other good thing, even your furnace will come to the end of its effective lifespan.  Is that time now or right around the corner?

It might be, at that, if you start noticing any of these all-too-common warning signs:

  1. blogMore frequent repairs, and more costly ones at that.
  1. Higher utility bills: much higher, in fact, than they should be.
  1. Hot and cold spots in your home, meaning that your furnace is not evenly distributing warm air.
  1. Greater accumulation of dust and/or excessive dryness. As your furnace ages, it becomes increasingly less able to moisturize and clean your indoor air.  Cleaning and replacing your filter will help, but only for so long.
  1. Strange noises. Popping, wheezing, rattling, and other noises indicate advanced wear and tear. That’s also true if your system’s blower is turning on and off more frequently than what you remember.
