With winter fast approaching, some of us have begun turning on our heaters here in Fort Worth, TX. Before the real cold settles in, its best to have your furnace inspected to ensure it will last all winter. Maybe you do not have the time for an inspection right now? Well, we have compiled four signs that may show your furnace is in need of replacement.
Four Signs Your Furnace Needs Replacement
- Dusty, Dry Air – Furnaces, especially older ones, cannot moisturize the air, leading to high dust, allergens, and even cracking of your furniture. If your furnace is causing your family’s allergies to act up, it is time for a new one.
- Your Furnace Is Getting On In Years – While it seems obvious that age would be a factor, many people subscribe to the school of “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” However, the older a furnace gets, the more wear occurs.
- Your Furnace Is Chatty – Strange noises coming from your furnace when it kicks on? Does your blower turn on often without any heated air? These are signs your furnace is getting older and is trying to tell you it needs replacement.
- Your Energy Bills Are Getting Higher – While you may want to attribute it to energy costs going up, it is more than likely just your furnace. As they age, they lose efficiency. It will burn more oil or gas to get get any warmth to your home.
