10 Warning Signs That Your Furnace Will Fail This Winter

Whether you are a seasoned home owner or you just made your first purchase, you should always keep an eye on your furnace. Checking in every now and then on your home heating system allows you to keep tabs on your furnaces function. You may notice that it’s working differently or less efficiently than it used to – it may be making strange noises or you notice an increase in your electric bills. If your furnace is old and outdated, or it hasn’t been serviced in a while, you should know what to look for if your heating system starts to fail. With the cold winters that New Jersey experiences, your furnace needs to be working properly.

Retire My Furnace Warning Signs

From all of us at Raynor, here are 10 signs that your furnace may need to be replaced this winter:

Scary Sounds

No old furnace is completely silent – the average hum is not a major cause for concern. If you notice that it starts to sound like a monster with loud bangs, growls, or howls, it may be in your best interest to consider replacement. When you dump money into repairs for an old furnace, you lose the money when it eventually dies. Troubleshoot as soon as you hear noises to see if your furnace should be fixed or replaced.

Your Thermostat Doesn’t Seem to Work

When it’s chilly in your home, your normal reaction is to turn up the thermostat and wait for the heat to reach your desired temperature. If that hasn’t seemed to work lately, you’ve got a problem somewhere in your heating system. It’s possible that you have a leak somewhere in your ducts, or that your thermostat itself may not be working properly. Either way, it’s important that this works properly during the winter months.

Your Electric Bill Skyrockets

As a homeowner, it’s likely that you pay close attention to your bills. If you notice a spike in your electric bill but you can’t think of a reason for it, the problem may be your furnace. When a furnace is running inefficiently, it requires more electricity than normal. The excess energy is wasted by your furnace, and it shows on your bills! Calling a specialist is recommended, you may need to fix or replace your furnace.

Yellow Pilot Light

Take a peek at the pilot light in your furnace. What do you see? A yellow flame may look normal, but if you ever encounter one in your home it’s a major cause for concern. A yellow pilot light is a sign that the gases working together in your furnace have become imbalanced, and that dangerous carbon monoxide may be leaking into your home. Carbon monoxide exposure can be harmful or fatal. What you want is a blue flame, meaning there is a balance in the gases.

Your Furnace Won’t Stay On

This is a telltale sign that your furnace needs repair. This could be caused due to faulty wiring, a broken fan motor, or a broken pilot light. A Raynor specialist will be able to locate the problem and fix the part, or go over replacement options with you.

Respiratory Problems

An outdated furnace can pump dust, mold, and other pathogens into your home. When your furnace needs repair, you may notice that your family members may be suffering because of it. Asthma symptoms may worsen, or other chest related illnesses may pop up. Your air quality is extremely important, so you should get this fixed as soon as possible.

Hot and Cold Spots

If your furnace is on and you can still feel significant drafts, or different rooms in your home have drastically different temperatures, you may need a new furnace. This is a sign that your furnace is no longer capable of heating your entire home. Make sure that heat isn’t escaping through another area in your home, like the attic. Call for a professional tune up as well.

Air Condensation

You may not need immediate repairs for furnace condensation, but if it keeps up you will need to have it checked. Frequent repairs often lead to replacement, as it’s best to only allow to minor furnace problems before you schedule maintenance.


The average lifespan of any given furnace is 10 to 20 years. With proper routine maintenance, your furnace can live its full life. However, the older it gets the more at risk it becomes for problems. If your furnace is 50 years or older, you should start looking for a new one. This will prevent you from going without heat if your current furnace breaks.

Strong Smells

The first time you turn your furnace on for the season, you may be able to smell oil or gas. This should stop after a few uses. If you can still smell it after a few consecutive uses, or the odor appears stronger, you should call a professional to diagnose the problem. Any leaking fluids could result in a potentially dangerous situation.





Choosing Between a Heat Pump or a Furnace In Time for Winter

Heat Pump or Furnace? With winter right around the bend, new homeowners and current homeowners alike oftentimes find themselves questioning their current heating system. Maybe a system you’ve had has gotten old and outdated. Will it last past the cold winter, or will you be left in the cold? New homeowners need to decide what heating system they need in their house altogether. This can be a confusing and trying task. Luckily, we’re here to help! Before temperatures get too cold, here are a few ways you can figure out what heating system is best for you :

Heat Pump or Furnace: What’s the Difference?

To begin, many may not know the real difference between a heat pump and a furnace. A heat pump simply takes air outside the home and pushes it inside. As this happens, the air is heated. Contractors will attest to this process being much more complex, but a heat pump at its most basic form is comparable to a reverse AC, functioning solely off your electricity. A furnace, on the other hand, most commonly generates its own power using gas. That power generated is then used to heat your home through a system of ducts throughout your house.


Heat pumps tend to be much more energy efficient because they run on electricity as opposed to burning fuel. The efficiency of a heat pump gives a boost to its popularity, especially when gas costs are up. Though efficient, heat pumps do not last as long as furnaces. On average, a properly maintained heat pump lasts about 10 years whereas a properly maintained furnace can last about 20 winters or more. So, thinking about long-term care costs and knowing when you may need to be revisiting this thought process is important to keep in mind.


Often, the primary question people have is cost. Heat pumps usually cost less to install, mostly because a furnace needs to have ventilation/ ductwork done to accommodate it. Fuel costs are an obvious deterrent for many when considering the installation of a furnace, especially with the constant cold weather. Electricity rates are oftentimes lower than natural gas, meaning a heat pump will cost less to continually run. However, a heat pump can sometimes be just as costly as a furnace as they require more electricity expenditure to heat your home during the cold, whereas a furnace has the ductwork to heat it all while working less to do so. Overall, heat pumps will tend to be the cheaper option but depending on use, costs may compound and add up to more over time.


Heat pumps generally work best when in moderate climates rather than harsh winter conditions. A heat pump is most effective when the temperature outside is above freezing, making heat pumps less than ideal for a typical New England winter. A furnace, which generates its own heat, would be a better bet for your wallet and warmth in the winter months. Heat pumps work well in areas that do not see much snowfall or freezing temperatures, so if you’re located in an area with milder winters, or in an area with tougher access to gas or oil, a heat pump may be the best way to go.


Safety is, with no exaggeration, the most important factor in purchasing any new appliance. Without taking safety into consideration your house, health, and wallet could be in more danger than it was before any actions were taken. When comparing a heat pump and a gas furnace, it may be no surprise that a heat pump is a majorly safer option. This is mostly due to a heat pump using electricity while a gas furnace uses combustible fuel sources to provide heat. While an electrical malfunction is still a possibility with a heat pump, there is much more risk involved with a furnace. Carbon monoxide poisoning due to gas leakage is a very serious matter than, if gone unnoticed, can put your entire house at risk. Also with a gas leak comes the possibility of an explosion or a fire within your home, which is not only a safety risk but could cost a gigantic amount of money in repairs. Yearly maintenance should be able to prevent those worst-case scenarios from occurring, but as far as your safety is concerned, a gas furnace is the riskier option.

Deciding between heat pumps and  furnaces can be a difficult task in time for winter. This decision requires time, research and knowing what works best for your home, budget, an area where you live. But knowing the basics and what direction to look in first can help your search run much smoother, more quickly, and leave you warmer in the winter months. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as pointing at one option and saying it’s better than the other. The context of where you live and the layout of your house play huge roles in this heating system decision-making process, so be sure to do proper research and make a heating system decision that will help you in the long-run.

The groundhog may have seen his shadow, but the temperatures of Spring have already started to bloom. Ensuring that your home is properly maintained is important for making sure that your furnace is correctly tucked in for the warmer seasons and your AC unit is ready to fire up when the hot weather arrives. Let Raynor help you with understanding why and how you can make sure your home and family are safe.

This combination is an efficient way to take care of both services with a technician who is familiar with both. You’ll be able to understand exactly what may be necessary to prolong the lifespan of both your furnace and your air conditioner. 

Furnace Maintenance is an important step to take care of to make sure that your heating elements are not under stress as they “grow cold” during the warming weather and summer months. Waiting until fall could mean that your filtration systems become overloaded. By shutting down your heating with a furnace maintenance appointment, you can be sure that none of the details will be missed and you’ll be ready to go once you need it again in the fall. 

In the same breath, your air conditioner is about to have to move to full tilt here shortly. Making sure that your air conditioner has enough freon, your refrigerant’s systems are all tuned and tightened, and your filters are making sure that the collected dust doesn’t make its way into your indoor air. 

Both systems have a direct impact on the quality of your indoor air. Both furnace maintenance and AC Tune Ups involve cleaning or replacing your air filters if necessary. With more hazards and pollutants than ever, Raynor knows that the comfort and safety of your air is in our hands. Many publications and news outlets have started publicizing the effects of our air on our quality of life – you can read more about the hazards here .

Why is this Important?

Furnace Maintenance will involve calibrating your thermostat, checking your thermocouple, and tightening all your connections – and that’s only three of the 15+ things on the entire list! A furnace maintenance appointment will make sure that your system is operating as efficiently as possible. But why is this important?

  • Maintains the Safety and Comfort of your home
  • Saves money on your bills by promoting efficiency
  • Catches problems before they become an emergency

Before you turn on your AC…

An AC Tune up is just that – a way to make sure a professional is on hand to oversee your system as it stretches its legs in the beginning of the warmer season. When you schedule an AC tune up, your system will get inspected by a licensed professional to help you avoid emergencies down the line. In addition to prevention, this also gets a professional into your home to make sure you’ve got all your bases covered and your system isn’t costing you more in heating and cooling bills than it should. 

Raynor’s team is standing by to help you get your furnace and air conditioner tuned up as the seasons are transitioning. Call us today to schedule an AC Tune Up!

3 Heating System Installation Considerations

A heating system installation could be the most essential part of your fall, more than any pumpkin pie or apple cider. The outdoor temperatures are on their way down, and if you do not have a reliable heating system in your home to withstand it all, you may find yourself piling under layers of sweaters and blankets just to stay warm. However, even as the need for warmth this time of year begins to intensify, you need to make sure you install the right heating system in your home. The only thing worse than having no heat in your home is spending tons of money on a system that can’t even work properly. Homeowners make this mistake every year and you need to make sure to not fall into a similar mindset. Show consideration before you install, and you’ll have a much better chance of landing a heating system keeping everyone in your household comfortable.

What Type of Heating System is Perfect for You?

When you search on the market for heating systems, you will have several different systems at your selection. If you are confused on what each system features and how they are different, here is an overview of the 3 systems you will commonly see:

  1. Furnaces: This is the most common type of heating system, available in many sizes and styles. The two main fuel types for furnaces are gas and electricity. Gas furnaces in particular now boast a level of efficiency higher than ever before, with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rate of up to 98.5%. This is mainly due to the fact that they feature a second heat exchanger and sealed combustion. They also operate much quieter than older furnace models, so you have heating that won’t cause a ruckus.
  2. Heat Pumps: This type is unique in the sense that it uses a lower amount of energy to produce heat, instead opting to absorb heat from the ground or air before dropping it in your home. They will also reverse that process during the summer and work as an air conditioner, meaning you will save so much more on installation service. Since they rely less on fuel, heat pumps are well known for being environmentally friendly and reducing your carbon footprint. They do, however, have a much higher installation cost compared to furnaces.
  3. Ductless Systems: While heat pumps force heated and cooled air through ducts, a ductless system delivers air directly to a specific zone. This will give you greater control over the climate in your home, allowing heat to go to the rooms in your home needing it the most. It also ensures you are not wasting energy on areas of the home where heat isn’t as needed. Plus, since they lack ducts that would otherwise build up with dust and other allergens, they will preserve indoor air quality.

Other Heating System Installation Considerations

In addition to the type of heating system to install, you may also want to consider any these factor that could potential influence your decision:

  • AFUE Rating: The AFUE rating measures how efficiently your heating system utilizes its fuel. You certainly don’t want to risk high costs on energy bills, so it’s all the better if you find a heating system with a higher AFUE rating.
  • Maintenance Schedule: How often will you need to seek a furnace tune-up? How much effort will go into maintaining that heat pump? You need to beware of how much a heating system will cost you on maintenance before you finalize your purchase. The maintenance on your end may be too much to even warrant installation.
  • Customer Reviews: When in doubt, seek a second opinion. With the Internet at your disposal, you can look up customer reviews on different brands of heating systems so you know which ones to avoid.

How Can a Furnace Tune-Up in Medford Extend the Life Your Furnace?

For months we’ve been thinking it, “winter is coming.”

And if the next ten-day forecast is to be believed, it appears that winter is finally upon us. Thankfully, we don’t have any Wildlings or other Game of Throne creatures to fight. We’ve just got to brace ourselves against the winter doldrums, and a few too many ice damns.

One way to ensure your Medford home is protected now and into the future is to schedule a furnace tune-up.

What is a furnace tune-up? Why would my Medford home need one?

Just as Ned Stark probably never rod into battle without checking that he had his sword, you shouldn’t let your home’s heating system fight against the harsh cold weather without a tune-up first.

When one of Raynor Electric’s heating specialists comes to your home in Medford or the surrounding areas, we’ll inspect your furnace for signs of rust, fire damage, leaks and a number of other problems that can arise during normal use. Your furnace tune-up will include tightening, cleaning, replacing, adjusting and calibrating any parts or components of your home’s furnace that need attention.    

A furnace tune-up now, means a whole lot fewer headaches later.

Furnaces use gas or oil, electricity and fire to create heat for your Medford home. All those chemical reactions and controlled burns can create a lot of wear and tear on your furnace’s belts, filters and other moving parts. Oil and gas units have a typical life expectancy of 15 to 20 years.

Yearly furnace tune-ups means problems, like faulty thermocouples or leaky gas lines, can be caught before they cause serious irreparable damage to your furnace or before they become a danger to your family.

Don’t make your furnace work so hard.

Another benefit to regular furnace tune-ups is that your machine won’t have to work so hard. Steady airflow, fresh filters and clean blower components help your furnace run more smoothly. A properly running heating unit uses less energy because it doesn’t have to strain as much to produce heat for you and your family. The more effortlessly your home’s furnace functions the longer it will last without needing to be replaced.

When should I call?

Servicing Your Furnace in Medford

In homes that are heated with a furnace, Medford residents are advised to maintain their appliances properly in order to avoid serious problems during the cold months.  Even as we approach spring, it’s important to remember that it’s best to service your furnace before it becomes a problem, so that come next winter when you really need it, your furnace is running in top form.

Whether your furnace runs on oil, gas or electricity, maintaining it yourself or having it serviced is crucial to your comfort and safety. According to Angie’s List, experts estimate that as much as three quarters of all no-heat cases are caused by inadequate maintenance. Besides complete failure to function, poorly functioning furnaces can result in overheating, high energy bills, low air quality and even carbon monoxide leaks that can have serious health consequences—and in the worst case scenario, even result in death!

If you service your furnace yourself:

The bulk of the work will consist of cleaning the appliance. You’ll need to clean or replace the filter, depending on the type of filter your furnace uses. Always follow manufacturer instructions to ensure you’re doing this correctly. You should also carefully clean the blower assembly in order to remove dirt that’s built up over time. In addition, remember to inspect the flue pipe for holes or cracks where carbon monoxide could leak out. You can patch smaller leaks, but for anything larger, you’ll need to replace the flue pipe altogether.

If your furnace obviously needs repairs or if you’re not comfortable servicing it yourself, call a professional furnace servicing company like Raynor Electric.

If at all possible, contact the company that installed your furnace, since they’ll be knowledgeable about your particular situation. No matter who you call, make sure the company is licensed and carries insurance. You should also ask about warrantees on labor, as well as on any new parts. It’s a good idea to do a bit of background research with the Better Business Bureau or on Yelp to make sure the company has a good reputation and a track record of satisfied customers.

In general, having your furnace in Medford professionally serviced costs around $100—a small price to pay for continuous, safe heating throughout the colder months. Moreover, you’ll have the added peace of mind that if any issues arise that should have been addressed during the servicing, the additional work is covered by the warrantee.

Signs that You Need Furnace Replacement in Medford, NJ

It’s already mid-February, but the winter feels far from over! The past couple of weeks have brought brutal cold for Medford homeowners — how has your furnace held up? If you’ve noticed any of the following, then it might be time for furnace replacement from the Raynor professionals:

  • Uneven Heating Between Rooms
  • Higher Energy Bills 
  • Loud Noises Coming from the Device
  • Thermostat Readings that Don’t Match the Real Temperature
  • Insufficient Heating

All of the above are signs that your furnace is on its last legs.

What do These Furnace Replacement Warning Signs Mean?

The lifespan of a furnace is between 10 and 15 years, but most warranties won’t last that long. If you start experiencing problems with a furnace that is more than a decade old, you’re definitely going to want to look into having a professional install a new heating appliance.


Because older furnaces don’t just have significantly lower efficiency rates — they may also have damaged or corrupted pieces that make them a serious safety risk. For instance, the heat exchanger in your furnace can pose a carbon monoxide risk if it becomes cracked or damaged. Carbon monoxide is also a risk in cases where filters haven’t been regularly changed or ventilation is otherwise obstructed. You can make sure that your home is protected from the potential threat of carbon monoxide poisoning by installing a modern high efficiency furnace to heat your home.

Furnace replacement from Raynor Electric will give you:

  • Better Heating (More Comfortable Winter Round)
  • Lower Heating Bills Each Month
  • Reduced Carbon Footprint (Eco-Friendly)

Plus, you won’t have to worry about furnace issues at all next year, since all of your heating problems will already be taken care of! Make sure that your family is safe and your heating system is built to last with a furnace replacement from Raynor Electric today!

Heat Pump Alternatives

Instead of replacing your old furnace, you might want to consider heat pump installation to improve the efficiency and affordability of your home. Heat pumps are essentially heating or cooling devices that, rather than burning fuel to generate warmth, transfer air from one area to another via chemical refrigerants and an electric motor. A heat pump can draw heat from the ground and distribute it throughout your home.

There are several advantages to heat pumps, including that they are:

  • More affordable
  • Simpler to maintain
  • Environmentally friendly

But the most important advantage of all is the fact that heat pumps are reversible, which means that they can heat or cool rooms depending on which way the coils are pointing.

Call Raynor Electric for furnace replacement or heat pump service today, and start saving money and living more comfortably year round!

Furnace Repair Service in Cherry Hill

So we’re nearing the end of winter…but it certainly doesn’t feel like it! If we get another snowstorm like the last one, your furnace will be under real pressure to perform, and the forcast doesn’t look good! Is your heating system built to last? Most furnaces only have a lifespan of about 10 to 15 years, and that is with proper maintenance.

In order to avoid furnace failure, you’ll need to know the signs of a struggling heating system and make the call to Raynor Electric for furnace repair.

Why Get Furnace Repair?

Of course, you know that a broken furnace won’t heat your home as well, and it might not even work at all! Winters here in Cherry Hill can be brutally cold and snowy (as you know by now!), and you definitely don’t want to come home after work to freezing cold rooms or a broken thermostat. Plus, broken furnaces have to work a lot harder to reach desired temperatures, so if you have a furnace in disrepair you’ll see your heating bills go up every month. But what’s more important than saving money or even having heat is being safe, and having an old or broken down furnace can be a serious safety risk. Why? Because furnaces produce heat by burning fuel, and the byproduct gasses of that combustion can be dangerous: in fact, old furnaces are known to create carbon monoxide, an invisible and odorless gas that is known as the “silent killer.”

5 Signs You Need Furnace Repair

Luckily, there are ways to tell if you need furnace repair These are some simple checks and warning signs to look for in order to tell if you need to call for furnace repair.

  1. Temperatures Not Matching Thermostat– Should you notice that your home feels colder or warmer than the temperature on your thermostat, it may not be your thermostats problem. Sometimes, when a furnace is old enough, it fails to produce the proper temperatures even though it is burning the same amount of fuel.
  2. Uneven Heating Between Rooms– If you experience insufficient heat or heat that is unevenly balanced between different rooms, you may have issues with your ventilation or your insulation. Either way, you should have a professional come and perform a check up on your furnace.
  3. Higher-than-Average Bills– Have your heating bills been going up each month? It could be because the weather is getting colder…or there may be something wrong. If you start to notice a huge jump in the price of your energy bills, consider an inspection.
  4. Poor Air Quality– Are your having allergies out of season? It could be because you need duct cleaning! If your ventilation for your HVAC system hasn’t been maintenanced in a while, it can collect dust and other contaminants that get distributed through the air.
  5. Loud Sounds– Not every furnace can be whisper-quiet, but it also shouldn’t be making banging sounds or other strange noises during normal operation.

Remember, furnace issues tend to get worse over time, so act quickly! Call Raynor Electric for furnace repair in Cherry Hill today.

Furnace Maintenance in Cherry Hill, NJ

It’s the middle of winter, and hopefully you’re safe and warm in your homes each evening, perhaps enjoying some hot cocoa or decaf coffee by the fire. January can be nice if you do it right! Part of making sure that you are safe and warm all winter long, however, is to make sure you have access to the furnace maintenance you need. Has it been more than a year since the last time that you had your furnace serviced by a professional? Then it may be time to call the heating experts at Raynor Electric for affordable and efficient furnace maintenance service today.

Why? Because if you have an issue with your furnace, all of that winter relaxation comes to an abrupt end. Worse, your family’s health may be put at risk. Insufficient heating, uneven warmth between rooms, or even total furnace failure can really make you and your family miserable…and having a faulty furnace can even be dangerous! That’s because old furnaces tend to be serious carbon monoxide risks — contaminated or incomplete combustion creates poisonous gas byproducts like CO, which cannot be seen or smelled.

Is your furnace past its warranty? Have you been using the same heating system for your home since before you can remember? Furnaces have a life expectancy of about 10 to 15 years. If you are past or nearing that deadline, it’s time to call in a professional to tell you if your Tabernacle home needs furnace maintenance or even furnace replacement.

The Benefits of Furnace Maintenance

When you request furnace maintenance from the experts at Raynor Electric, you get:

  1. Peace of Mind– Most furnace manufacturers recommend that you get furnace maintenance at least once a year. This is because a lot can happen to a furnace over the course of the winter, and the best way to make sure that your furnace is operating properly and safely is to have a professional come in and perform a tune-up inspection.
  2. Energy/Money Savings– Old furnaces, like most old appliances, tend to lose efficiency over time. As a furnace collects dust, rust, and other contaminants, it doesn’t burn fuel as cleaning. This means you could be paying more for the same amount of heat month over month. If you start to notice that your heating bills are going up even though temperatures are staying the same, furnace maintenance can help you lower those costs!
  3. Better Heat– Of course, when you call Raynor Electric for a comprehensive inspection of your furnace and have all of your heating and safety issues sorted out, the main benefit you can count on is that your home’s heating system will perform better all winter long.

So don’t wait until you experience furnace failure to have a professional inspect your old furnace — call the professionals at Raynor Electric for furnace maintenance today!
