Last week Dean PHC gave you a few reasons as to why you may need a new furnace. Below are some additional signs that a new furnace may need to be added to your budget. You may need a new furnace if:
Strange noises are coming from your furnace
If you hear banging, popping or rattling sounds the minute you turn your furnace on, it could be a sign that its life is coming to an end. Older units tend to make odd sounds when they are about to break down.
Blower keeps turning off and on
If your blower keeps turning itself off and on or if it is blowing cold air, your furnace may need to be repaired or you may need to buy a new furnace. Dean PHC can inspect your furnace to determine if you need a new one.
You are Never Comfortable
If some of the rooms in your home are too cold or too hot leaving you to adjust the thermostat to stay warm, it is a sign that your heater is not distributing the warmth throughout your home properly. If this is the case, you may need a new furnace.
The Burner Isn’t Blue
If the flame on your pilot light is yellow and not blue, it may be a sign that your heater is producing dangerous carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is tasteless, odorless, and colorless and is quite toxic. Your furnace may also be producing this potentially fatal gas if you have soot around your furnace or extra moisture on your walls or windows. If your flue pipes are rusting or you notice that your chimney is not producing an upward draft it is vital that you call Dean PHC for a diagnostic or repair.
Of course, the only way to tell if you need a new furnace is to call Dean PHC who can inspect your furnace. Call now.
