These Signs Could Mean Furnace Failure Is On The HorizonHere in Indiana, you’ll likely put your furnace through a lot of work this winter. That’s why it’s essential that your heating system is ready for several months of steady work. You don’t want furnace failure to occur in the middle of winter, when you’re least equipped to handle it. To detect signs of imminent furnace failure, look for these signs:

  • Most furnaces last between 15 and 20 years. If your furnace is in this age range, then you should probably begin looking for a replacement. You want to avoid having to scurry around looking for a replacement mid-winter. This will make you rush your decision, and it might be difficult to find a contractor who can do the installation as soon as you need it. Begin looking for are replacement while your current furnace is still working.
  • Were your gas or electric bills been unusually high last winter? This may be due to your old furnace having to work longer to provide adequate heating. Furnaces often lose efficiency as they age. Replacing your furnace will be expensive, but with a high-efficiency upgrade, you will save money on heating bills in the long run.
  • If your furnace has a history of repairs in the last few years, you may just want to replace it. The money you are putting into having it repaired could go toward a new, more efficient furnace.
  • If your furnace is making odd noises, have a technician look at it to determine whether it’s a reparable problem or a sign of potential furnace failure.

Any of these problems can signal potential furnace failure. For more information about repairing or replacing your furnace, contact Mowery Heating, Air Conditioning and Plumbing. We provide top-notch HVAC services to the greater Indianapolis area.
