The Age Of Your Furnace
Wouldn’t it be nice if your furnace lasted forever? Unfortunately, most furnaces have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years. If you schedule annual HVAC maintenance, there’s a good chance that your furnace will last even longer. Once you’ve hit the 20 year mark, it may be time to take a closer look at your furnace. Is it making unusual noises or sounds? Do you smell any funny odors coming from your HVAC system? If so, reach out to an HVAC expert to inspect your system. They will be able to recommend the best repairs or replacements for your system, so you can enjoy a comfortable, heated home.
Cold Air Is Being Pushed Out
If you’re like most people, you use your furnace for one job and one job only: to heat your home. While this may seem like an obvious red flag, if your furnace starts blowing out cold air, it could be a warning sign of imminent furnace failure. While there are a number of things that can contribute to the failure of your furnace, the issue likely lies with the motor in the blower fan. If the blower fan has started to malfunction, the furnace will not have enough power to blow the warm air throughout your home. This can cause cold spots in certain areas or rooms of your home. If your furnace isn’t blowing any warm air out at all, there may be an issue with the heat exchanger or pilot light. When you contact a qualified HVAC technician to inspect your furnace, they’ll be able to tell you the best way to remedy the issue.
Increased Heating Bill
As we mentioned above, if you’ve started to notice a dramatic increase in your home’s heating bills, there is likely an issue with your furnace. A properly working furnace will work to keep each room in your home at a certain temperature. If your furnace isn’t heating like it used to or it’s using more energy to output the same amount of air, it may be time to call a professional.
