Your furnace plays a vital role in your comfort level in your home. When your furnace works right you don’t give it much thought, but when something goes wrong in the middle of a cold spell then you really take notice. So how can you prevent a sudden furnace outage? There are several warning signs to be aware of that might indicate that your furnace is about to have a problem. Let’s take a look at some of those signs:

  • Your furnace is a dinosaur. Most furnaces last about 16 to 20 years. If yours is nearing that mark, then it might be time to start shopping for a new one.
  • Have you noticed either your gas and/or electric bill going up lately? That’s another warning sign that something might be wrong.
  • Have you noticed any strange noises coming from your furnace recently? That is a strong indication that a problem is imminent.
  • Is the burner flame on your unit yellow or blue? A flickering or yellow flame could be a sign of carbon monoxide.
