Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Furnace
Frigid temperatures are upon us – don’t let your furnace break down when you least expect it. Below are a few of the most common telltale signs that it might be time to replace your furnace:
The average lifespan of a furnace is 15 to 20 years, depending on the quality of your brand. So if you know your furnace is close to its end, consult with a professional HVAC technician to see if it’s time for a replacement. However, if yours is over 20 years old, replace it before it’s too late!
Noticing that your electric bills are going through the roof? Many furnaces don’t run as efficiently if they’re many years old. But even if your furnace is fairly new, if you’re spending more and more each month, it might be time to have it looked at by a pro.
Like many other large pieces of equipment, it becomes difficult to replace just one part. If you’re spending a few hundred dollars a month for repairs, this might be a clear indication that replacing old parts with new ones just isn’t doing your furnace justice anymore. In this case, you will probably save more money by replacing it all together.
From rattling to banging noises, if your furnace is making strange and unusual sounds, chances are your furnace could be giving out. Don’t wait too long after the first signs of these noises – replace is as soon as possible before more serious damage occurs.
