Most homeowners simply turn on their heat and enjoy the warmth during the winter. Many don’t think about how a furnace operates or if it needs replacing. Here, our heating experts share five signs to look for that can indicate you’re in need of a new furnace:
Sometimes a furnace that’s on its way out begins to make strange noises. These can include whining, banging, popping, grinding, and more during its operation or when it kicks on. Noises can indicate a variety of problems: your blower motor may be damaged, one of your burners may be malfunctioning, or you may even have an issue with your blower wheel. No matter the problem, we can look into it and recommend a new system if needed.
Lots of Repairs
Have you made several repairs to your furnace over the past few years? A system in need of constant maintenance is a sign it needs to be replaced. Instead of continuing to spend money to repair it, our experts can help you choose a new one that is reliable, efficient, and the right size for your home.
You want a furnace that can heat your home efficiently, right? If yours isn’t doing so, it may be time for a new one. Many systems in need of replacement don’t produce heat, produce too much heat, or cycle the heat on and off too frequently. This can be frustrating when you’re trying to keep your home and your family comfortable during the winter. At Oliver, we can help you choose a new furnace that you can rely on – even on the coldest of nights.
Many furnace models are designed to last around 15-20 years. If yours is this old (or older), you may want to consider replacing it. We know the last thing you want is to lose your source of heat during the winter season. Save yourself the hassle and the disappointment of a broken heating system and consider a new one from Oliver.
High Energy Bills
Have you noticed that your energy bills have been higher than normal recently? If this is the case, a failing furnace may be the culprit. When a system begins to fail, it has to work harder and burn more energy to keep your home warm. This results in higher heating bills. If you don’t replace your furnace, you could end up paying more than you should just to keep your home comfortable. With a new furnace, you can put that money towards a better environment instead.
