Signs You Need Furnace Replacement
Like all major appliances, your furnace will eventually need to be replaced.
You can save yourself any unnecessary time, discomfort, or excess energy usage by watching for these warning signs, and contacting M.E. Flow for expert assistance and advice:
Increase in Energy Usage
An unexplained rise in energy costs can signal a decrease in efficiency, as your furnace struggles to maintain your desired temperature. A furnace that was purchased as little as 15 years ago may only have an AFUE rating of 80 percent or less, compared to the high-efficiency models of today which have a maximum AFUE rating of close to 98 percent.
With an average lifespan of between 15 and 20 years, your furnace may begin to exhibit warning signs after 10 years or more of use.
Lack of Comfort
If you find yourself continually adjusting the thermostat in an effort to stay warm, your furnace may lack the ability to generate or distribute adequate amounts of heat or it may be incorrectly sized for your home.
If some rooms in your home are hotter than others you may have an issue with your ductwork or your furnace may be malfunctioning and in need of replacement or repair.
Banging, popping, squealing, rattling, or any other loud or unusual sounds coming from your furnace require immediate attention. Contact the experts at M.E. Flow to determine the cause of the noise and to prevent further damage.
As your furnace continues to age, parts may begin to break down and repairs may become more frequent and expensive. If your furnace is past its prime and is in need of a repair that costs more than 50 percent of the price of a new unit, consider replacing it.
