Signs Your Furnace Needs Replacing

By August 14, 2019 HVAC

1. Old Age

Furnaces can last for a good chunk of time, but just how long can a typical furnace last before it needs to be replaced? A furnace normally requires replacement if it is 15 years or older. If a furnace does not get replaced after this amount of time, it can cause your energy bills to rise dramatically in pricing, as well as uneven temperatures within your household. With the colder months right around the corner, fluctuating temperatures aren’t something that should be messed with! If you think that it’s time for your old furnace to be replaced, call (585) 3Harold today!

2. Problems with Humidification

Humidification “refers to the amount of water vapor in the air,” and if it’s low, can cause scratchy throats, dry skin, as well as other sinus-related symptoms. Your floors may lose moisture and separate at the seams, and even wallpaper can begin to peel. Static electricity also has a tendency to build up when the humidity in your home is too low. Humidification is an essential during Rochester’s harsh winter months if you wish to stay comfortable when heating your house! Humidifiers generally connect to the HVAC system, so if your humidifier is up-to-date but the humidity in your house is still low, it’s a clear sign that your furnace may need to be replaced.

3. Loud and Strange Noises

What may be the most telling sign that you need to replace your current furnace is if your system is making loud and unnecessary clanking noises. HVAC equipment has been modified over its years of existence in order to make home living as comfortable as possible. That includes getting rid of deafening sounds that your neighbors down the street could hear! If an intense commotion is deriving from your furnace, it most likely needs a replacement. Don’t stress out about the decision to replace your heating system; our technicians will be there every step of the way. If you can’t come to the phone, go to highperformanceheating.com and fill out a webform!

4. Frequent Repairs

If your furnace continues to malfunction and break down, don’t throw money towards multiple maintenance and repair sessions.  If your system refuses to work after trying to fix it, it’s an indication that your furnace’s lifespan is up. Maintenance can be even more expensive than an installation when sessions add up, so save yourself the time, energy, and money by replacing your furnace! Don’t wait until our scheduling fills up: the days will only continue to get chillier and our schedule will continue to fill, so make sure you’re prepared for autumn and winter.
