Signs Your Little Elm, TX Home Might Need a New Furnace
Replacing your furnace isn’t exciting, but it is an integral part of homeownership. This is especially true during the tail end of summer and fall. The cold season brings temperatures in the 30s to Little Elm, Frisco, McKinney, Allen, and Plano, TX. Don’t be caught unprepared. Even though you aren’t using it during hotter months, it is wise to begin inspecting your heating system in preparation for the change in weather. The benefit of preparation is to get a jump start on repairs or new installation if needed. Even the best-laid plans sometimes fail. If you did everything right, but your furnace stops working anyway, there are going to be clear indicators something is wrong. Be on the lookout for:
Popping, banging, squealing, or clanking signs are not typical sounds your furnace creates. If you hear sounds like this, there’s a good chance your furnace is not working correctly anymore. We don’t advise ignoring the noises and waiting until the heat goes out. Abnormal sounds are often the first thing in a sequence of events ending with furnace failure. We see this issue mostly in older furnaces.
Furnaces shouldn’t require regular maintenance; they’re built to last over a decade, especially with proper maintenance. If you’re calling out heating repair specialists every couple of months, it is probably time to look into a furnace replacement. Generally speaking, you should opt for a new furnace when the cost of repairs exceeds the price of a new unit or when the furnace is nearing ten years of age. The upside is new units have longer lifespans of 25 years.
In some cases, broken furnaces can cause health issues. At a minimum, housemates with allergies might experience more frequent or severe allergy symptoms. But the problems can be worse. For instance, cracks and holes sometimes develop in the heat exchanger, which can release trace amounts of carbon monoxide gas into the house. Symptoms could include headaches, nausea, disorientation, or burning sensations in the eyes and nose. If you’re experiencing these issues, you should call Air Masters for an inspection.
If winter arrived and portions of your home are comfortable while others are not, then you probably have an issue with your furnace. This is one reason why preventative maintenance is important. Another symptom might include frequent tinkering with the thermostat but little control over the indoor temperatures. In these cases, we advise you to contact us for an inspection. You might need a new furnace.
Rising Energy Bills
Your energy consumption is a subtle but telling sign of furnace problems. You should always keep an eye on the total amount paid on your energy bill, as well as the details found on your statement. Those details tell you how much energy is consumed each month. If the numbers are increasing, the furnace might be the culprit. One advantage of purchasing a new heater in time for the upcoming winter months is the improvement in energy efficiency new models provide.
Switch to an Energy-Efficient Model Just in Time for Winter
Air Masters understands installing a brand-new furnace is a considerable financial investment, and we want you to feel comfortable. Consider the benefits, though. A new heater is guaranteed to be more efficient than an older model, as technology continues to evolve. Many modern units come with improved thermostat controls and heftier performance. Most importantly, energy-efficient models usually come with rebate opportunities and tax credits, two fringe benefits that can defray the cost of the unit.
