Do you have an older gas or electric furnace struggling to keep up with Midwest temperature extremes? Don’t wait for a furnace emergency! Call a heating contractor to help.
Early Signs of Furnace Failure
A well-maintained gas or electric furnace usually lasts 15 to 20 years, but delaying or neglecting regular service can shorten equipment lifespan. Aging furnaces operate less efficiently, increase utility bills and deliver uneven heating to your property. Watch for these telltale signs of furnace malfunction—then, call in the Cavalry before a catastrophic breakdown hits during the worst of winter. You can also opt for a boiler rental for a temporary replacement.
Be on your guard for these furnace symptoms:
- Frequent on/off cycling
- Frequent repairs
- Rattling, clanking or loud noises
- AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) rating below 80 percent
- Carbon monoxide leaks
- Rising indoor humidity
- Soot collecting around registers
- Dust & poor indoor air quality
- Room-to-room cold spots & uneven heating
- Rising utility bills
