If you are like many home buyers, you obsessed over a thousand countless details – but the old furnace heating the place just wasn’t one of them. Or perhaps the years have slipped by, and you can’t even remember how old your furnace is.
If you’re not a furnace expert, you might miss some of these indicators. We’ve compiled a short list of the most common signs your furnace could be on its last legs.
Your gas or electric bill is going up.
As furnaces age, they often lose their efficiency. If your increase isn’t due to a utility rate hike, the problem could be your furnace.
You’ve had to perform repairs in the last two years.
Over time, little fixes can begin to add up. If your furnace is in need of constant maintenance and repair, do yourself a favor and invest in a new one.
Is your burner flame yellow?
If it is, you’ve got a problem. The burner flame should burn blue. If it’s yellow, it could be the sign of a dangerous carbon monoxide issue.
Is your furnace making odd noises?
If you hear banging, popping, rattling, or squeaking, you should get it checked.
Is your house drier than a desert?
Old furnaces often don’t have the ability to regulate the moisture inside your house. This leads to dry air that can often feel stuffy and stale. It can also trigger allergies and illness in certain individuals.
