All About the Lennox EL180NE Ultra-Low Emissions Gas Furnace

Posted: 2020-01-21

The idea of having to replace a furnace is never easy for any homeowner. After all, buying a new heating system is not only challenging in terms of the cost of investment, but it is also demanding when it comes to identifying either a repair work can do the trick or the whole thing needs to be replaced.

A failing furnace is one of the more stressful experiences anyone has to deal with, especially during the coldest nights of winter. It’s virtually impossible to get the comfort you need when your heating system is no longer able to perform its job as it should. Thankfully, furnaces do show obvious signs when they need to be replaced.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your trusted heating company in Hugo MN. We can guide you into identifying the current state of your furnace and determine whether it can be rectified or is officially retiring.

Here are a couple of signs telling you it’s time to say goodbye to your furnace.

Excessively Loud Noises

While it is pretty normal for a furnace to produce a sound while it runs, but too loud noises are a clear indication that there is something seriously wrong with the unit. These noises tell you there are malfunctioning parts in your furnace. If you hear popping sounds, it may be because of a delayed rough ignition due to filthy burners or a loose or dirty filter getting pulled against its frame, or a loose blower door. If you hear a rattling noise, it may be due to wobbly ductwork, loose screws or sheet metal. It may also mean the blower motor is improperly balanced.

Repeated Cycling

When a furnace keeps on cycling, it means that it’s trying hard to produce a consistent temperature in your home. A lot of times, mechanical problems cause constant cycling. Faulty switches, worn blower fans, and poor fuel mixes in the unit are just some of the things that can cause a furnace to keep on cycling.
