Our Technicians are Always on Call to Tend to Any Heating Emergency in Florida
Heating emergencies can be life-threatening, especially if an electrical malfunction leads to a fire, or there is a gas leak. If your heater or furnace causes immediate dangers, you should call 911 for help.
Other heating emergencies may not require assistance from the fire department, but they still require immediate attention. These emergencies can include the following:
- Your furnace is not producing warm air when needed.
- Your heat pump is dead.
- Your heat exchanger is cracked, which could lead to furnace failure.
- There are strange noises coming from your furnace, such as rattling, popping, grinding, or squealing noises.
- Your blower is running continuously and won’t shut off.

How to Know When You Should Replace Your Furnace
At some point, the cost of repairing your furnace might have you wondering whether it’s worth replacing it altogether. If you are wondering how to know when it is time to replace your home’s furnace, here are some questions you should ask yourself:
How Old is Your Furnace?
The average life span of a furnace is between 15 and 20 years. According to ENERGY STAR, homeowners should consider replacing furnaces that are 15 years old or older and opt for a more energy-efficient model.
Have Your Energy Costs been Rising?
Check your energy bills to see if you have been gradually increasing your energy usage and costs. If you notice a spike or increasing trend, your furnace may be running less efficiently and need replacement.
Are You Experiencing Excessive Humidity in Your Home?
Furnaces that aren’t working properly can create extra humidity, which can affect homes that have wood floors. Certain factors can cause humidity, such as leaky ductwork, inadequate equipment or maintenance, and failing operation.
Does Your Furnace Have Dust or Air Particle Buildup?
If you smell burning from the ventilation, it could be a sign that you have a buildup of dust, air particles, or other concerning matter stemming from the furnace.
Do You Notice Cracks and Other Signs of Aging in Your Furnace?
If you start to see cracks, rust, moisture, or other signs of degradation on your furnace equipment, this should be cause for alarm. Signs of gradual aging indicate that your furnace may be reaching the end of its life span, which could lead to inefficient heating or even potential hazards.
Is your Furnace Heating Your Home Evenly?
If your central heating unit does not adequately heat all the rooms in your home, it could be a sign of inefficient energy. You may require a modern device to properly heat your home.
Does Your Furnace Require Constant Repairs?
Finally, if you consistently must make repairs on your furnace, it may be time to replace it. Having to continue repairing your furnace can become an economic hardship that can be avoided by replacing it altogether.
If you are interested in getting a new furnace, our sales representatives at Joe Hillman Cooling & Heating can discuss estimates for potential devices you’re interested in during a free consultation. Once you pick the furnace you want to be installed in your home, we’ll set up your appointment.
