Signs That Your heating system needs replacing

The last thing you want living in Brentwood is for your furnace to completely break down in the middle of winter when it is wet and cold outside. To prevent this from happening to you we recommend keeping tabs on your furnace, making sure that it is running efficiently.  

Here are some common signs that your furnace may need to be repaired or replaced: 

Frequent Repairs – if your furnace is requiring frequent repairs it may be time to consider replacing it. Repairs can be expensive and over time it may work out cheaper to just replace the whole system. 

Noise – if your furnace has started making unusual noises such as buzzing or rattling, this could be a sign that it is slowing down or that the system is no longer able to meet your heating needs. 

Producing Dust – if your furnace has started spitting out dust and soot this is a very common sign that it may be time for a replacement.

Increased Running Costs –  if your using your heater the same amount as usual but you have noticed a surge in your heating bill then it is likely that your heater is overcompensating and is needing replaced. 

Uneven Heating – if some rooms in your home are hotter than others your furnace is not distributing heat evenly and may need replacing. 

Replacement is not always the case. Some of these signs may just mean that your heating systems needs some repair and maintenance. However, we always recommend getting a second opinion from a certified technician who can help to establish the best course of action for your furnace.
