Posted: 2018-11-06

One of the things you wouldn’t want to deal with is a malfunctioning furnace in the midst of a chilly Minnesota night. That would be a lot of stress and discomfort. But the good thing is that before your furnace totally gives up on you, it will show a few noticeable warning signs.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your trusted heating company in Vadnais Heights MN that can help you determine if your existing heating system is due for a replacement.

Increased Energy Bills

Higher utility bills can be caused by two main factors: fuel cost and an inefficient heating system. When a furnace is nearing the end of its life, it needs work harder in order to provide the heating demands of your home. It simply no longer has the power and performance it once had. As your furnace ages, its efficiency starts to dwindle, especially if it has not been properly maintained.

Cold Spots

Do you notice some areas within your house that are considerably colder than other rooms? It is possible that your furnace can no longer provide consistent heating throughout your home.

Furnace Frequently Turning Itself On and Off

When a furnace is cycling, it means that there is tension in trying to produce a consistent temperature in your home. Oftentimes, mechanical issues cause this problem. Faulty switches, overused blower fans, and poor fuel mixes in the unit are just some of the factors that can cause a furnace to turn itself on and off persistently.

A Dry and Dusty Home

An underperforming furnace can make the air in your home stuffy. Frequent allergic reactions to dust, mold or dander, or suffering from extremely dry skin can be alleviated with a new heating system. Some other signs to look for include:

  • Static discharges
  • Unhealthy, lifeless-looking plants
  • Difficulty in keeping musical instruments in tune
  • Frequent dust accumulation

Weird Noises

Strange noises are a clear indication that there is something wrong with the unit.  They tell you that there are problems in some internal parts of your furnace. For example, if you hear popping sounds, it may be because of a delayed rough ignition due to dirty burners. It can also be due to a loose or dirty filter getting pulled against its frame, or a loose blower door. If you hear a rattling noise, it may be because of an unsecured ductwork, loose screws or sheet metal. It may also mean the blower motor is improperly balanced.

Whatever strange noise you may hear while your furnace is running, it is not recommended for you to try and fix it, especially if you are not trained in repairing HVAC equipment. For your own safety, call a qualified HVAC professional.
