Warning Signs That The Time Has Come To Replace Your Furnace

Now that winter is here; it’s never been a better time to determine if your furnace needs a significant update. Fortunately, from ever-increasing energy bills to persistent repairs, there are quite a few telling signs that you need to update your furnace. Here are a couple of warning signs that you should keep your eyes and ears open to.

Increasing Energy Bills

Everyone likes it when their monthly energy bills are consistent year-round. Unfortunately, this is usually never the case. If your energy bills are slowly increasing more and more every month, it means one of two things: someone’s leaving the heating on, or you need to replace your furnace.

Visible Signs of Rust or Cracks

If your furnace has visible signs of rust or cracks, you should replace the unit. Although this is naturally occurring, your furnace isn’t going to work well when it has developed rust and cracks. In the future, you should monitor any rust or cracks that appear in your furnace and hire Max C. Smith Company to repair the affect parts of the unit to avoid needing to get a replacement furnace every other year.

The Length of Time You’ve Had Your Furnace

Usually, furnaces can last up to 15 to 20 years, as long as you take proper care of the appliance and get necessary repairs as needed. To determine if you need to update your furnace, consider how long ago you got the unit installed. If it’s past 15 years, you should consider buying a new furnace, but anything younger should get moderate repairs until its lifespan has hit its maximum age.

Excessive Dust or Dirt Particles in the Air

If you’re noticing more and more dust or dirt particles in the air or around your home, your furnace is telling you it’s not operating as it should and requires a much necessary update. Although this can be the cause of other internal problems in your furnace, it can save you a lot of money by just getting a new system, rather than trying to make the repairs to get the issue resolved. Plus, you and your family can finally start breathing cleaner air again. Remember, if anyone in your home has severe allergies, pollutants and dust particles in the air can trigger severe reactions, that you may not be fully equipped to deal with.

Problems with Humidity

Humidity can be a severe problem in your home, especially during the wintertime if you have wood flooring. Humidity can warp the flooring, prompting you to replace the damaged floorboards. Also, the air can become quite uncomfortable in your home, which can all be caused due to a poorly functioned furnace. Fortunately, this can be quickly remedied by updating your furnace with a new unit.
