Winters in Chicagoland are no joke, and having a furnace break down on you in during the cold months can be a serious health and safety issue. It’s natural to want to get as many years out of your current furnace as possible, but at some point you have to bite the bullet and get a new unit installed in your home. A HVAC Naperville professional can help if you see the following issues.
Age of the heater
Depending on the model and how well the maintenance has been done, a
furnace generally lasts between 15 and 20 years. If the furnace was
there when you moved into the home, and you don’t know how old it is,
then the model number found on the furnace or in the owner’s manual
may lead you to the information you need.
If your energy bills are rising but you aren’t using your furnace any
differently than previous winters, then it may be time to replace
your unit. While repairs can postpone replacement by an HVAC
Naperville professional, they may also be more costly over time.
When you notice that your home is heating unevenly, then a failing furnace may be the culprit. Rattles, clangs and other noises coming from the furnace that you don’t remember hearing in the past are another sign. If you’ve decide that the time has come for a new furnace in your Naperville home, contact the team at Air-Rite Heating And Cooling.
