Furnace Installation in Palatine, IL

Five Star Heating & Air is Your Company for Furnace Replacement in Palatine

Your home’s furnace is absolutely essential and not just for your comfort and safety during the coldest months of winter. A properly functioning furnace is also essential to protect the contents of your home. For example, a warm stable temperature helps protect the pipes in your plumbing system, preventing them from freezing and bursting. And frozen pipes can lead to extensive interior damage and a very hefty repair bill.

If your current furnace is struggling to keep you warm and comfortable, it may be time to consider installing a new system. The question is, how do you know if you need to replace your old furnace with a more modern, energy-efficient system? The following checklist should help you decide if it’s time to contact Five Star Heating & Air for the installation of a new system.

Signs of Furnace Trouble

  • An aging system – If properly serviced and maintained, a home heating system should last about 15–20 years. If yours is nearing the end of that projected lifespan, you may want to consider installing a new system.
  • Rising energy bills – High winter energy costs could well indicate your aging system is “tired” and struggling and not running as efficiently as it once did.
  • Indoor air pollution – If you notice a lot of dust, dander, dirt, or soot in the air inside your home, that’s a pretty good sign a new system is needed.
  • Uneven home heating – If you’ve noted that your home is not heating evenly, with some rooms noticeably warmer than others, or perhaps not heating at all, that’s a good sign your furnace is well past its prime.
  • Strange, unusual noises – Naturally, your furnace is going to make a certain amount of noise as it cycles on and off, but if you hear louder than normal noise – humming, buzzing, or rattling noises – when your furnace is running, that may indicate your furnace has some serious structural problems.
  • Visible cracks and rust – A point related to the previous one, rust and cracks often develop over time in a furnace, and if you see these in yours, it’s probably time to replace it.
  • Frequent service calls and repair bills – Check your repair bills over the last couple of years, and if you’re frequently having to pay for service calls other than regular fall maintenance, a new system may be in order.
