Signs You Need Furnace Replacement
Having a functional HVAC system is crucial to the safety and comfort of your family, but as your furnace starts to approach the end of its usable lifespan you may start to notice some warning signs that a replacement is imminent. Call Pohlman Plumbing for expert advice on furnace replacement if you notice any of the following:
Decrease in Comfort
As parts begin to wear, improvements are made to your home, and increasing demand is placed on your furnace, you may begin to notice a decrease in comfort and efficiency. A lack of heat or airflow may also be a sign that your ductwork is leaking or needs repair or replacement.
Although your 15-year-old furnace may still be operational, you are likely to pay more for system operation and repairs than you would with a new, high-efficiency furnace replacement.
Older furnaces may start to emit a series of unusual noises including squealing, banging, popping, or rattling. Call the experts at Pohlman Plumbing for efficient, reliable diagnosis of your furnace issues to determine if you need repair or replacement.
A musty smell coming from your vents may be a sign that you have mold growth in the HVAC system or ductwork. If you smell gas, however, you may have a cracked heat exchanger which can pose a serious threat to your home and family. Turn off the furnace and evacuate the home immediately before calling your gas service.
Furnace issues are unavoidable, but if find yourself calling for repairs once or more each season or are facing a repair higher than 50 percent of the cost of replacement, it may be time to upgrade to a new unit.
Increased Cost of Energy
As your furnace ages, it starts to lose efficiency, using more energy to produce less heat. Today’s high-efficiency furnaces operate at close to 99 percent efficiency, compared to older models which may be closer to 65 percent.
If some of the rooms in your home are hotter or colder than others, your furnace may be improperly sized or no longer able to distribute heat evenly throughout your living space. Our technicians will ensure your furnace replacement is correctly sized for maximum performance and efficiency.
