There are clear signs that your furnace may be on its last legs and with the cold winter months in Calgary, it’s always recommended to prevent any possible breakdown and avoiding being left without any heat. Here are some possible signs that your furnace may be going:
Increased Heating Bills
There can be many reasons behind your energy bill increasing unexpectedly. However, one of the most common reasons is that the furnace has lived up to its usefulness. If you notice an unusual increase in billing, despite having the furnace repaired by a reputable heating company, then you should replace the unit.
Your bill has likely gone up because your unit is exerting itself to maintain the temperature you desire. Since the internal parts of your furnace are wearing out, it requires more energy to pump heat outside your room.
Irregular or Insufficient Heating
Another obvious sign of your furnace being on its last legs is insufficient or irregular heating in your rooms. On such occasions, you will find yourself continuously getting up to your thermostat to see why you still feel cold when the furnace is on. You might also observe some parts of your home being too cold while others are too hot.
Furnace Is Over 10-Years-Old
The lifespan of a typical furnace is between 12 to 15 years. However, it’s possible for a furnace to start showing problems after ten (or more) of use. Therefore, if your unit has aged that much, then it’s probably running on its last legs.
If you happen to notice any of these signs, then you should not waste time in replacing the unit. For furnace repairs and express replacement, feel free to consult us at 403-474-5443
