Every part inside your home has a shelf life. How long the item lasts depends on normal wear and tear, and how well you care for it during its life. Your furnace is no exception. From the moment it’s installed, it has a useful life. And every season is one more step to reaching its limit.
It’s never fun waking up to a cold home. And unfortunately, furnaces only seem to quit completely on the coldest days of the year. But in most cases, a furnace has telltale signs it’s reaching the end of its useful life long before it wears out.
The following are signs your furnace needs repair:
Here are a few quick things to check first if your furnace isn’t working:
During the first heat cycle of the year, a burning smell is not that uncommon for the first two to three minutes your heater runs. This is simply the dust and debris that has accumulated in your heat exchanger and heating element burning off. If you smell burning rubber or plastic, and the smell doesn’t go away shortly, shut off your furnace immediately and call for help right away.
There are a number of different reasons this could happen. Your heating element could be failing to ignite or turn on. Your gas supply may be interrupted. You might even have a problem with your heat exchanger or another important part of your system. Call for a professional inspection and repair service right away.
This is typically a sign of two things: short-cycling or overheating. Short-cycling is caused by having a furnace that’s too big for your home or a blower fan that is too powerful for your ductwork. This creates pockets of extremely warm air that shut your system off prematurely. Overheating is caused by heat not being able to escape your system fast enough, usually due to a blower fan or heat exchanger problem. In any case, you should call a professional for help right away.
Furnaces typically last around 15 to 20 years, and can go as long as 25 years when they receive proper maintenance and tune-up services periodically. However, furnaces that are not properly cared for won’t last nearly as long, and likewise will experience more problems over their short life. This is why we emphasize maintenance so heavily—this small investment in your system can sustain it and keep it working efficiently and reliably for a much longer period of time.
In general, the most efficient way to run your furnace is to simply set it to your ideal temperature and let it run on its own. Make sure you periodically change your filter to ensure proper airflow, and everything should work properly. Aside from your system, however, there are a few things you can do in your home to help your furnace too. Open all vents and registers to allow for maximum airflow with minimal cold spots. And set your downstairs thermostat two degrees warmer than your upstairs thermostat for a more even heat throughout your home.
