Furnaces seem to stop working at the most inconvenient times. Surprisingly, furnaces often produce signs in advance to signify the upcoming need for replacement. The following symptoms suggest the furnace in your Wake Forest, NC home may require replacement.

Strange Sounds

Furnaces often make more noise as they age. Not all sounds signify the end of a furnace’s lifecycle. In fact, HVAC technicians can often repair a noisy furnace. However, strange sounds coming from your home’s major heating appliance should never go ignored.

Rising Energy Bills

A sudden increase in your home’s heating bill may indicate a problem with your furnace. If an aging or malfunctioning component on your furnace causes it to work harder, you will likely see an increase in energy consumption.

Uncomfortable Room Temperature

When a furnace struggles to heat your home due to disrepair or age, you may experience uneven room temperatures. If you have recently noticed difficulty in maintaining a comfortable temperature throughout your Wake, NC home, replacing your furnace may solve the problem.

Weak Airflow Into Your Rooms

If the warm airflow from your home’s vents seems weak, the answer may lie in your furnace’s motor. Contact your Wake, NC HVAC technician to determine whether the motor requires repair or replacement.

Excess Household Dust

Dust may seem like a natural part of life, but an unusual amount of dust in your home may actually suggest a furnace problem. If you have noticed more dust than usual, it is possible that your furnace has become less efficient at removing dust particles from the air.
