5 Signs It’s Time For A Furnace Repair Or Replacement

A well-running heating system during winter is vital to keep a comfortable living space. However, like any other mechanical system in your home, heating units will eventually break down and will need repair or replacement.

So, how do you know when it’s time for heating replacement or repair? Here are five telltale signs:

  • The heating system has aged: The lifespan of a heating system is around 15 to 20 years. If your heating unit is already nearing or has exceeded this age, then it’s time to start looking for a heating replacement in Paso Robles, CA to avoid any heating emergency. Newer heating systems are more energy-efficient which can lead to lower utility bills.
  • Hike in heating bills: An increase in heating costs is one of the first signs that your heating system is starting to fail. An old and inefficient heating system is one possible reason for this. Upgrading to a newer, more energy-efficient model can help lower your energy costs. If your unit is working overtime to maintain the same level of comfort, then it’s time to call for furnace repair in Paso Robles, CA, or in some cases, it might also need replacement.
  • Unusual noises: Banging, grinding, and squealing sounds coming from your heating unit are not normal. These could be signs of a serious problem with the heating motor. It’s best to have a professional take a look at it to avoid further damage.
  • Yellow pilot light: A healthy heating system has a blue pilot light. If it starts turning yellow, that’s an indication of a gas leak, which can lead to a serious safety hazard. In such cases, you should shut off the heating unit immediately and schedule heating replacements or repairs.
  • Uneven heating: If some rooms in your home are too hot or too cold, it might be a sign that your heating system is no longer working efficiently. This could be due to blockages in the ductwork or an issue with the thermostat. However, if you’ve ruled out issues with the ducts and your heating unit is still not heating evenly, then it might be time to get in touch with a professional to get to the root of the problem and fix it.

If you’re experiencing any of these issues, call Air Rite immediately. We provide heating installation, replacement, and repair services in Paso Robles, CA and the surrounding areas.

As the caretaker for a senior gentleman in Atascadero, I was concerned for his health and safety during a recent cold snap. I called Air Rite, explained the situation and they made getting my patient’s needs taken care of a priority. The service technician was knowledgeable and professional, going above and beyond and taking the time to listen to my patient’s own diagnosis. The heating repair was completed within an hour and the price was right. I will recommend Air Rite Heating and Cooling to both my patients and my friends.

“Let me tell you why this company should have “10” stars. First, you need to know we had attempted to get our forced air heating fixed by another company from Templeton (posted a review on their site). After waiting several days for the other company to return after their initial visit (said they needed to order a part). After many cold days without even a call back we called “Air Rite” in Atascadero. We spoke with Rick (the owner of the company) and explained our dilemma and frustration with our attempt to get it fixed. He understood and said a ...

“Great service at a great price. When my parents needed an entirely new heater system Air Rite took care of it. When our heater recently went out Air Rite took care of it. Arnie came out diagnosed the problem and had us back up and running in no time. Great doing business with a small family-owned business. Highly recommend!”

“Air Rite certainly did right by me! Our 20 year old HVAC system, which had been nursed along for the last few years, finally gave up the ghost. Arne came out and assessed the situation and recommended a reasonably priced replacement system. This morning he sent his team of Cameron, Daniel, David, and Keith, and they went to work. Before 3:00 p.m. on this wickedly hot day in the North County (105°+), they got our new furnace and air conditioning units installed, up, and running. Thank you, Air Rite!”

“We needed to have our AC unit serviced and called Air Rite. The woman who works in the office was attentive and kind. They were really busy because it has been so hot but she let us know the soonest they could send someone out. When the technician arrived he was kind and courteous. He went above and beyond to clean out the leaves that were in our unit and made it ready for summer. Thanks, Air Rite!”
