With winter fast approaching and the weather reflecting cold weather requiring us to rely on our furnaces more and more, many people take care of their furnace so it lasts for years. With professional maintenance and homeowner care, the furnace can run well for many years with due diligence. However, whether you take care of the furnace or neglect its needs, the furnace will eventually expire. When the furnace comes to the end of its lifespan, there are many symptoms that manifest, and some are more obvious and common than others. Today, we at North Country Aire would like to share a few signs your furnace is due for a replacement.
1) Unusually High Heating Bill
Noticing an increase in heating costs can likely point to a furnace on its way to retirement. The amount of energy you’re using should always reflect your home’s energy bills. No matter how you choose to heat your home, should you notice your heating bill seems to skyrocket, contacting a professional to inspect your heating system should be your first priority. Not only is it a tale-tell sign the furnace is coming to the end of its life, but it can also be indicating a repairable problem as well. In any case, heater inefficiency can lead to sky-high bills and simply getting the repairs or replacement needed can help better manage your energy bills and the furnace’s efficiency.
2) Furnace Short Cycling
Short cycling is not an issue limited to the air conditioner, but it effects the furnace as well. It is time to call in a licensed contractor for your heating work in the event you notice that your heater runs in short cycles throughout the day. The comfort of your home, the cost of your operating bill and the efficiency of your furnace is all negatively impacted by short cycling. Have professionals take care of this issue quickly, though you may need furnace replacement.
3) Insufficient Heating
Because they think that as long as there is some heat in their home, they’re not having a problem, many homeowners shrug off the problem of inadequate heat. If you constantly have to turn up the temperature on your thermostat, inefficient heating is a problem in your home. It is also an issue if you have to turn your heater on for long periods of time to get the amount of heat that you need in your home.
