Furnace Repairs in Marion, Carbondale, West Frankfort and Southern Illinois
Furnace Lifespans and Warning Signs
A furnace will usually last twenty + years. But without regular repairs and maintenance, that number can drop to ten to fifteen years. So making sure your furnace receives repairs as soon as the problems develop is important. If your furnace is fifteen years old, it’s time to start considering whether you need a replacement. You should have your unit inspected by a professional furnace repair specialist at this point to make sure your furnace is in shape. (Yearly inspections are also a great way to ensure your furnace is well-maintained. They’ll save you money on larger repairs down the line and make sure you don’t find yourself in an emergency situation.)You should start to watch out for any warning signs that will at least mean your furnace needs repairs. One of the easiest way to tell your furnace is becoming less efficient is by watching your heating bills. If your energy costs are rising but you’re not using your furnace any more frequently, you are in need of repairs at the least. You should also listen for any strange sounds, like buzzing or clicking. And if you notice any soot or rust accumulation, or water leaks around the machine, you’ll need to call a professional furnace repair specialist.
