As the weather cools down, reliable heating becomes increasingly important.
Furnaces can fail for a multitude of reasons: broken thermostats, filters that needed to be replaced long ago, pilot light issues, and motor problems. In general, furnaces last between 15-20 years, which often leads to a lack of regular maintenance. Before you know it, you might find yourself heatless when you need it the most.
Signs of Furnace Failure
The most obvious sign is, of course, a cold home. There’s nothing worse than waking up in the middle of the night and realizing that something isn’t right, and that first, barefoot step onto the cold floor can ruin anyone’s night. Here are a few key signs that you need to replace your furnace sooner rather than later:
- Noise. Loud creaks, moans, and banging noises is a noticeably clear sign that something isn’t right.
- Unreliable Thermostat. If your thermostat is reading a different temperature than what your home is receiving, it’s time to take a closer look.
- Higher Bills. Your bills will be higher if your furnace is working harder than normal to produce the same results.
- Condensation/Rust. Finally, if there is condensation on the furnace, and physical signs of deterioration, don’t waste any time in calling an expert for an evaluation.
