-Furnace is older than 20 years. Begin by confirming the manufacture date of your furnace. For many homeowners, their furnace was already in place when they first moved in. Consequently, your furnace may be fairly old or even at the end of its service life. Consult your owner’s manual or search the unit’s model number, which you’ll typically find on the actual furnace. The typical service lifespan of most furnaces range from about 15 to 20 years. This varies according to usage and maintenance.
-Increasing utility bills. If you notice that your heating costs are steadily rising, give us a call for Heating Contractor Lexington IL service. We’ll inspect your furnace and identify why it’s not heating your home adequately.
-Excessive dirt and dust in your indoor air. If you’re seeing that more dust and dirt floating in your indoor air, the issue may be with the furnace.
-Inconsistent heating from room to room. Does it feel as though your home is heating unevenly? If you find that some rooms are warm and others too cold, it’s probably because of the furnace. As furnaces get older, they can struggle to distribute warm air consistently.
-Your furnace is becoming unusually loud. If you hear strange bumping and banding sounds coming from your furnace, it’s a sign of problem. Whether due to leaks or structural cracks, strange noises from a furnace are a warning sign.
