How Will I Know If My Furnace Is Broken?
If you have your furnace installed by a reputable professional, it should run smoothly without many issues. Although, that doesn’t mean it will run smoothly and without incident forever. Furnaces break down just like any machine with many working parts; you just have to know what to watch for. A broken furnace may produce loud sounds or unusual odors, it may not heat the house to the temperature set on the thermostat or it may not run efficiently, causing elevated energy bills. A malfunctioning furnace can also result in a carbon monoxide leak, so if your detector ever goes off, make sure you call 911 and leave the house immediately.
When It’s Time for a Replacement
If one of the above issues occurs and you call in a technician, you may get away with some repairs to get it going again, or you might be looking at a full replacement. Most furnaces have a life expectancy of about 15 years, so if yours is around that age, replacement may be the most energy efficient, cost-effective choice. This is another advantage of having a professional come in and look at your furnace, as opposed to trying to work it out yourself.
The Value of Furnace Maintenance
One way to make sure your furnace reaches its full life expectancy is to have regular routine maintenance performed from the time it is installed. Usually, having a technician come out to clean and inspect all of the different components before the heating season each year will keep the furnace running problem-free when you need it the most.
If your furnace has been acting up, or if you want to look into getting a newer, more energy efficient model, call Bellows Plumbing, Heating & Air. We will send someone to survey the situation and give you a professional estimate.
