Do you know the age of your current furnace? With the average life expectancy of a forced air furnace being approximately 20 years, do you know the warning signs? Below are some warning signs that you may want to consider. Remember, information is key when making an important decision.
With the average life expectancy of a forced air furnaces today being approximately 16-20 years, age is always an important factor to consider. If your furnace is close to this age, or older, we recommend that you start looking into what a furnace replacement entails. Let’s face it, shopping for a replacement during the dead of winter, after your furnace has called it quits, is not fun. Starting your research early allows you to make an informed decision, and not one that is based solely on dollar and time frame.
As a furnace approaches the end of its life expectancy, you may start to notice odd sounds coming from the unit. Banging, popping, rattling, or squealing are all common sounds that are reported with older furnaces. Other common issues reported is the blowing of cold air and the furnace turning on and off periodically, without satisfying the call for heat.
COLOUR OF BURNER FLAME
Have you noticed a change in the colour of your furnace’s burner flame? If you have a natural gas furnace, a yellow or flickering flame may be a sign that carbon monoxide could be present. Always be mindful, and monitor your furnace for possible warning signs. We recommend carbon monoxide detectors be placed on every floor, especially close to your furnace room. Remember, carbon monoxide is slightly lighter than air and diffuses evenly throughout the room. It is also colourless, odourless, and tasteless, hence the term “silent killer”.
RISE IN ENERGY COST
Over time, furnaces tend to lose their efficiency, especially if regular maintenance hasn’t been performed. As a result, furnaces may run longer to provide the same amount of heat. These longer run times will in turn cause your energy bills to rise.
It is important to be aware of the warning signs that indicate that it may be time to replace your furnace. It is especially important to not wait until it’s too late. If you are contemplating purchasing a new furnace, don’t despair! With low interest financing, don’t think of it as a substantial cost, but as a long term investment.
