Furnace Lifespans & Warning Signs
Furnaces typically last between 20 and 30 years. Depending on how well maintained your machine is and how promptly any problems have been repaired, its lifespan could wind up being only as much as half as long. Once a furnace has reached the 15-year mark, it’s probably time to begin considering whether or not you’ll need a replacement. You’ll also want to make sure that any problems with your furnace, at this point, are handled by a furnace repair specialist immediately. At Royal Class Service, we recommend having a furnace inspection at least at the 15-year mark to ensure nothing is critically wrong with your unit.
Yearly furnace inspections will also help ensure your furnace has a long life, and they’ll save you money on larger, more expensive repairs down the line.
One thing to make sure you watch out for is an increase in your energy costs. If energy costs are rising but you’re using your furnace just as much—or even less—you’ll need furnace repairs.
Other warning signs you might need furnace repairs include:
- Buzzing sounds coming from the unit
- Soot or dust on the outside of the unit
- Rust accumulation throughout the unit
All of these are symptoms of larger problems and your best bet is to have a professional take a look as soon as possible. Our Hudson Valley furnace repair technicians will help you with any repairs necessary, and take any possible preventative measures to ensure no big problems occur in the future.
Oil to Gas Furnace Conversion
One of the best ways to save money on your heating is to make the switch from oil to gas. Our contractors can convert your oil furnace into a gas furnace. If you’ve found yourself shying away from using the heat and going cold rather than spending the energy, it’s time to switch. Oil is much more expensive than gas and it’s not any more energy efficient so the conversion will pay for itself.
