There are some common signs that a furnace is having problems. Clogged or dirty air filters can cause reduced airflow. This will eventually lead to damage to the limit switch, which controls the fan. Water vapor, carbon monoxide and sulfur that are emitted from the furnace will buildup rust and corrode the metal parts of the heating system over time. The heat exchanger is expanding and contracting while the furnace is heating and cooling the air in your home but that could crack over time. A faulty electrical ignition or pilot light could the furnace to fail due to drafts, clogs or a malfunction. The furnace may not be producing enough heat. If the furnace is continuously running or shutting off intermittently could mean the furnace is having problems. An unusually noisy furnace could indicate that there is a mechanical problem, clogged burner or airflow issue. Most furnaces will last around 10 to 20 years. If your furnace is having continuous problems, then it is time to get a replacement heating system.
