Most furnaces last anywhere between 16 and 20 years, which is why it is imperative to know the most common warning signs that appear when it is time to call an HVAC company. When you understand the warning signs to look for with a furnace that requires a repair job or a complete replacement, gain peace of mind when moving forward with the decision to hire a professional company to get the job done right.

Your Heating Bill is Abnormally High

Monitor your monthly heating bills each month and check the past year’s heating bills if you believe your current expenses are abnormal or too high. Oftentimes when a furnace is in need of repair it is unable to properly circulate heat throughout all areas of the home. As a result, your furnace may begin working overtime, causing additional issues to the furnace mechanisms themselves.

The Temperature Throughout Your Home Varies

If the temperature in your home is not equal in all areas, you may need a furnace inspection. If your furnace is not circulating the air in your home or working in certain vents, it likely requires a cleaning or a possible replacement.

Your Furnace Makes Odd and Unusual Noises

While furnaces have a tendency to make some noise upon its first use each year, it is important to listen for sounds that are extreme or unusual. Popping, hissing, banging, and large booming sounds are a sure sign that your furnace is in need of repair.
