When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

December 30, 2014

Your furnace works nonstop during the winter. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the most frigid days of the year in Booneville. You may not even think about the possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in disaster mode, and that’s not the greatest place to be. The Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be showing that will let you know it may be time to replace it.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t evenly heated, your furnace may be failing. Sometimes this problem can be solved by confirming that your ductwork is properly sealed. Properly sealing your ducts can not only keep your home evenly heated, but it can prevent your furnace from working harder than it needs to. You could save your furnace and save some money with better energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more often. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t working normally.

Too many repairs

You probably realize that older furnaces often fail, and before that happens they become less and less energy efficient. If you find you’re calling for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to think about a new system. Waiting too long to make a new purchase could actually cost you more money in the long run.

The average life of a furnace or boiler is about 15 years. So, if your system is getting to be that old, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system.
