6 Signs Your Furnace May Need To Be Replaced

Your home’s furnace is the engine behind ensuring you are warm and comfortable this winter. Take a look at these signs that your furnace is failing.

1. Your Furnace Is Short-Cycling

Your furnace may not always be on, but it shouldn’t be turning on and off without reaching the temperature set on your thermostat.While it could be a simple fix like a clogged air filter, short-cycling can also happen when a furnace is too large for a home.

2. Your Furnace Is More Than 15 Years Old

A furnace’s life span is between 15 and 20 years old. If you’re not the first homeowner, you may need to determine your system’s age using its model number.

Regular maintenance helps to keep your system working efficiently, and an HVAC technician can spot potential problems before they affect your comfort or system reliability.

3. Your Furnace Needs Frequent Repairs

If your furnace seems to need frequent repairs and it’s in the last few years of its life span, it might be worth considering a replacement instead of a repair.

If your furnace repairs cost more than 50% of the price of a new furnace, a new unit is a more cost-effective option.

4. Your Furnace Makes Strange Sounds

Grinding, banging, and rattling sounds are not the sounds of a furnace that’s functioning properly. If your furnace is making strange sounds, it’s time to get an expert to take a look.

  • Clicking can indicate a problem with the igniter.
  • Screeching can indicate a damaged furnace blower motor.
  • Rattling can indicate a loose air duct or other loose components.

5. Your Heating Bills Have Risen Over the Years

If your furnace is aging and not working as efficiently as it could, it may be reflected in your heating bills.

If your furnace is wasting energy, it might be time to replace it with a more energy-efficient unit.

6. You Have Hot & Cold Spots Throughout Your Home

A poorly functioning furnace has a difficult time evenly distributing heat to all rooms of the home.

If you notice drastic temperature changes between different areas of your home, call a professional to evaluate your furnace’s performance.
