3 Common Signs That You Need a Furnace Repair

As we roll into Fall, we begin to prepare for colder temperatures and snow. A fully functional furnace is one of the most important to have for a comfortable home throughout the winter. Although your furnace may have been working smoothly this Spring, it may not be the case come the Fall. Depending on the make and model of the unit, it could even last up to 15 years. However, once you start to experience some of the warning signs, then it’s time to call Macleod’s Plumbing & Heating, to repair or replace your furnace.


Old Age

If your furnace is more than 15 years old, chances are it’s nearing the end of its life. At this age your furnace may still work, but be ready for steady maintenance. If you are unsure of the age of your furnace, you can locate the make and model online, and try to find the electronic owner’s manual to look through. Depending on the age and condition of your furnace, it may almost just be worth it to invest in a new furnace replacement.


Increased Electricity Bills

Older furnaces are built with older technologies, resulting in deficiencies down the line. A furnace that was manufactured 30 years ago will be far less efficient than one that was, 2 years ago. Nobody wants a huge spike in their monthly bills, investing in a newer unit may actually save you all that money on furnace repairs and maintenance.


Strange Noises

Listening to the sound of your furnace Is an easy way to determine that it’s healthy. Usually, smooth running furnaces maintain a constant whirring sound, this is something to periodically listen for. If you start to hear banging, rattling, groaning etc…, that could mean you have a serious problem with your furnace. Some sounds are random but always check, if you notice consistent sounds, it’s time to call a professional to come and take a look at the unit.
