The furnace is one of the most important components of your home’s HVAC system, creating the hot air distributed around the house. Because it’s so heavily used all winter long, it is also one of the most likely parts to fail. Knowing some of the signs that your gas furnace needs to be replaced may help you avoid the need for an emergency repair or replacement.
Changes in Pilot Flame
The pilot flame in your furnace should always be a brilliant, bright blue. If you have noticed that the flame is changing colors or that it is flickering or seems weak, it may not be properly burning the gas. This doesn’t only affect efficiency, it can also be dangerous.
If you notice that you or members of your family are experiencing more flu-like symptoms than usual, this could be a sign of carbon monoxide poisoning. When your furnace isn’t burning the fuel properly, it may pump carbon monoxide into the home, which can be deadly in large doses.
High Heating Bills
Your heating bills can be a great indicator that something is wrong with your gas furnace. When the furnace isn’t heating efficiently, it will run much longer than it usually has to in order to keep the home warm. This could be a sign that it’s time to replace the unit entirely.
