Friday, March 9, 2018

Yes, it is that time of the year again. The leaves are changing color, the nights are getting bigger and the cold weather has started to set in. We’re in for a rough winter this year, cuddle in.

You don’t want your furnace to break down in the middle of a cold weather this year, therefore, it is best to identify beforehand if it needs to be replaced. Below is a list of signs that can help you determine if it is the right time to have your furnace replaced.

1. Your Furnace is Old
A furnace lasts for 16 to 20 years. If your furnace has kept your home warm for more than 15 years and it is now having maintenance issues, this is a warning sign that it needs to be replaced. Like cars, the older furnaces get, the more maintenance they need. Instead of paying for regular maintenances, it is best to replace your furnace with a new one and avoid paying extra bucks to repair technicians.

2. Increasing Utility Bills
Your furnace may be at fault if the utility bills are increasing abnormally. An older furnace works harder to heat the house and this means more bills. Check your monthly usage and compare the bills from the previous months. If there is a significant difference, then it may the right time to replace your furnace.

3. Hearing Strange Noises
Older furnaces start making strange noises towards the end of their life. You may hear banging, rattling, squealing or popping noises coming from your old furnace. Another noise is that of a furnace blower running excessively. If you hear these noises, then it is a sign that your furnace needs to be replaced.

4. Burner Flame Turning Yellow
If your gas furnace has a yellow burner flame instead of blue, then it indicates the presence of carbon monoxide, which can be fatal. Excessive moisture on the windows or walls, rust on flue pipes and vent pipe, small amount of water leaking from vent or chimneys are all signs of presence of carbon monoxide and means that your furnace needs to be replaced immediately.

5. Constant Adjustment of Thermostat
Do you feel that some rooms are too hot while others are too cold? Or do you have to constantly adjust your thermostat to maintain a stable temperature? This is a sign that your furnace has lost the ability of properly distributing the air in your home. In that case, replacement is a must.

6. Dry and Dusty House
Old furnaces mostly lack the ability of moisturizing and cleaning the air in your home. Your house may feel stale or stuffy. Has anyone in your home started to suffer from dry skin, dry throat or dry nose more often? Or anyone in your family is suffering from allergies to mold, pollen or viruses? These signs suggest that your furnace can no longer provide you and your family the comfort your desire.

When you notice these signs in your furnace, do not wait around and have it replaced immediately to save yourself from shivering on a cold night of December. Contact Crane Heating and Air Conditioning if you want to have your furnace replaced as these are the people you can count on for the highest degree of service.
