Is your Calgary home's furnace over 20 years old? This alone might be reason enough to consider scheduling a furnace replacement. Some furnaces in Canada will last for more than 30 years in certain cases. However, the average lifespan of a furnace won't be that long. You'll typically need to replace a furnace after 15 to 20 years.
Age is one of the signs that suggest you should think about installing a new furnace. Other signs, such as uneven heating and frequent cycling, will also indicate that furnace replacement should be on the horizon for you.
Discover more about uneven heating and frequent cycling below, and then find out how to arrange to have furnace replacement done in Calgary.
Uneven Heating: How to Troubleshoot
Are there certain parts of your home that are boiling hot when you have your furnace turned on and others that are freezing cold? Then, you have what's known as uneven heating going on in your house.
There are many causes of uneven heating. Leaky ductwork and a clogged air filter are just a couple of them.
You might be able to stop uneven heating from wreaking havoc on your home by having your ductwork fixed or buying a new air filter. These are often good uneven heating solutions that can also make your home healthier.
If your furnace is old, outdated, or malfunctioning, it might struggle to provide consistent and even heat throughout your home. In such cases, a furnace replacement could be necessary to resolve the problem of uneven heating.
Frequent Cycling: Causes and Factors
Frequent cycling is another common problem that can plague a furnace and can be the cause of uneven heating in your home. Frequent cycling occurs when your furnace turns on and off repeatedly without it actually heating your home to your desired temperature.
Some additional signs of frequent short cycling are a cold house and your room temperatures failing to match what’s been set on your thermostat.
You’ll want to troubleshoot by checking if your thermostat is faulty or if your furnace has a dirty air filter or a dirty flame sensor. You can also request a service call to have furnace repairs done to stop it from cycling so much.
That being said, there may come a time when your furnace continues to cycle no matter what you do. You'll want to look into the possibility of having your furnace replaced with a new and well-functioning model to alleviate this issue and make your home comfortable again.
