Signs it's Time to Replace Your Furnace

Need to Install a New Furnace in Philadelphia? Call Giannone!

There are a series of scenes in the classic movie "A Christmas Story" that feature a man at perpetual war with his furnace. Every time a cloud of smoke emanates from a vent, he bolts down to the basement cursing a blue streak, much to the consternation of his wife and children. He should’ve just called the 1950s equivalent of Giannone, for his furnace was dying a bad death. With the arrival of fall and cooler temperatures, it’s time to take stock of your heat source.

There are tell-tale signs your Philadelphia furnace is approaching the end of its life. Here are classic indicators it’s time to call in the HVAC experts from Giannone to diagnose the problem, and if necessary, help you make the leap to a new furnace.

Signs You Need a New Furnace

  1. Age. The average lifespan of a furnace is about 15 years. The older it gets, the closer it comes to an inevitable end.
  2. Noises. If your furnace rattles, hums or pops, they could be signs belts or motors are wearing out. It could also be a sign of excessively variable temperatures within the furnace itself.
  3. Increasing utility bills. If your furnace is not operating at optimum efficiency, you will notice an increase in utility bills. This means it’s working too hard to perform properly.
  4. Excessive service calls. Just because your furnace needs maintenance doesn’t mean it’s about to die. But if the number of service visits is on a noticeable uptick, it may be approaching the time to let go of your old friend.
  5. Dirty registers. If your furnace begins emitting dust, soot or other particles, your registers and the areas around them will get filthy fast. This is not only a sign of a serious furnace problem, it could be a health problem.

Even furnaces deserve to die with dignity. Contact Giannone today for a diagnosis. If it’s time to replace your Philadelphia furnace, we’ll help you find the best and economical fit for your Philadelphia heating needs.
