Understanding When It May Be Time for a Furnace Replacement
Unexpected loud noises, bad odors and vibrations in your home are more obvious and easy to spot symptoms that your furnace may be damaged or dying. However small changes over time, especially those that impact our own behavior, can be a lot more difficult to identify.
Be aware of these changes in your personal behavior that may be evidence of an unhealthy furnace:
- Thermostat Awareness – If your old routine of adjusting the thermostat before bedtime has become a constant battle to control the comfort of different rooms, it could mean that your furnace is in need of attention. Schedule an inspection with our team of professionals to rule out technical difficulties before assuming the worst.
- Increased Dryness – If dry, itchy skin or burning eyes and dry noses have become a seasonal reality for your family, take a look at your furnace. Poor circulation can result in a lack of moisture, especially during the dry chill of the winter season.
- Frequent Dusting – A poorly operating or declining furnace can also lead to the rapid buildup of dust and debris. If you find you are dusting a lot more frequently, the age and performance of your furnace might be a contributing factor.
- Illness Symptoms – Consider your indoor environment and furnace if you or someone you live with suffers from headaches or nausea on a regular basis. Cracks in the heat exchanger can lead to leaks that can cause serious health problems with extended exposure.
