Do You Need a New Furnace? Warning Signs, Pt. 2

questionIn our last post, we discussed three warning signs that your furnace may be on its last legs. You may be experiencing one or – most likely – a combination of issues. Here are a few more ways you can determine that it is time for a heater replacement.

Your Furnace Goes Bump in the Night

When an appliance begins making noises you are unaccustomed to hearing it is never a good thing. Furnaces tend to get noisy when they are ready to be replaced, so rather than calling for heating repair in Conroe, TX, you may way to talk to an expert at Air On Time AC about replacing your unit.

Your Thermostat is Never at the Right Temperature

If you are always changing up your thermostat because the temperature in your home is never comfortable, it is time to replace your heater. If some of your rooms are too hot or cold, your heater is no longer distributing heat evenly, which can be a sign of a larger problem. A full functioning furnace can keep temperatures consistent and comfortable without contact thermostat adjustments.

Your Burner Flame is the Wrong Color

The flame in your furnace should be blue. If the flame is yellow, this could be a sign that your furnace is producing the odorless, colorless, and deadly gas known as carbon monoxide. Other signs that your heater is producing carbon monoxide include soot around the furnace, excess moisture on windows and walls, rusting on flue pipes, or an absence of an upward draft in the chimney. If you think your furnace is producing carbon monoxide, you need to address the issue immediately because exposure to this gas can be fatal.
