Knowing the tell-tale signs of a failing heating system is important for every homeowner. Recognizing problems early on can help to prevent major damage and costly repairs in the future. It also helps you to make informed decisions about hiring a professional. But when it looks as though your heating system is failing, you may have to look beyond repairs and invest in a replacement. After all, it makes more sense to invest in the future of your home heating system than to pay more in repairs and utilities for an outdated and broken system. Call Pompeii’s Plumbing & Heating for all of your Cleveland heating system replacement and repair needs.
So, how do you know your heating system is failing? Well, here are a few warning signs that should motivate you to pick up the phone for professional diagnosis.
- Old age. If you aren’t sure about the age of your furnace or you know it is old, you may want to consider a replacement. Not only does an older heating system risk a breakdown each season, but you may also potentially save significant amounts of money by upgrading to a more technologically advanced and energy-efficient model. Many of today’s furnaces and boilers offer AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) ratings over 90%, which can lead to great returns on your new heater investment.
- Uneven heating. While this may be caused by something as minor as a dirty air filter or leaky ductwork, your heater may no longer be able to heat your home effectively. Ask a pro to evaluate your heater.
- Loud noises. Loud and excessive noises from your heater can often indicate substantial problems. A rumbling gas furnace might have a blown fan motor, or it might indicate a problem with the fuel supply line.
- Frequent need for repairs. If you need to repair your furnace or boiler constantly for it to work properly, then you would probably benefit from a heater replacement.
