Top 4 Signs You Need Furnace Replacement
You don’t have to wait until your furnace fails to replace it. Often, these machines give off warning signs that they’re nearing the end of their lifespans, allowing you to plan on installing a new system on your own time.
Here are the top four signs your furnace may be nearing the end of its days.
The average lifespan for a furnace is between 15 and 20 years, and while routine maintenance can help your furnace last longer, it will fail eventually.
A good rule of thumb is to plan on furnace replacement during the last quarter of its life.
Furnaces require more frequent repairs during the last years of its life. So, if you find that you’re calling a technician every season to fix your system, it’s a good sign it’s on its last legs, and you should think about replacing it soon.
Spike in Heating Bills
As your furnace gets older, it loses efficiency, meaning it works harder to do its job. This efficiency loss will cause your heating expenses to rise. Sometimes, a furnace tune-up will solve the problem, while replacing the system is the best option in other instances.
If you hear your furnace making noises like rattling or buzzing during operation, it might signal that it’s time to begin shopping for a replacement.
If you notice any of these issues, call the experts at Grand Canyon Home Services for diagnosis.
