Top Warning Signs of a Failing Furnace

Age of your Furnace

Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever, and the average lifespan of even a well-maintained furnace is around 15 years. Keeping track of the age of your HVAC system, and preparing for eventual replacement can help you save time and money in the long run. Regular tuneups and maintenance also can extend the life and efficiency of your climate control system.

Lack of Heat and Warmth

While this seems like an obvious sign, if you are noticing that your home isn’t as cool or as warm as the thermostat indicates, if you notice drafts, or if it seems like your HVAC is running for longer periods of time without noticeable temperature change, it’s definitely time to book a tune-up.

Strange Noises

While any HVAC system makes some noise (think a quiet hum) you should never hear knocking, banging, or a loud whirring coming from your furnace or ducts. Any change in the noises your system makes can be a warning sign of trouble to come.

Increase in Energy Costs/Consumption

While older systems do lose efficiency over time, a sudden surge in power usage is a definite sign of trouble. If your power bills have jumped- or are steadily climbing- this may be a red flag.
