When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

December 30, 2014

Your furnace works constantly during the winter. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the chilliest days of the year in Katy. You may not even think about the possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in crisis mode, and that’s not the best place to be. The Goode Bros AC & Heating team can help. We’ve compiled this list of symptoms that your furnace may be exhibiting 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. You might be able to solve this problem by ensuring your ductwork is properly sealed. Properly sealing your ducts can not only keep your home evenly heated, but it can save your furnace from working harder than it needs to. You could save your furnace and save some money with improved energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Goode Bros AC & Heating. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to turn on and off more often. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t operating 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’re needing furnace repair frequently, it’s time to start researching a new system. Waiting too long to make a new purchase could end up costing you more money in the long run.

The average lifespan of a furnace or boiler is about 15 years. So, if your system is getting older, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Katy, the team at Goode Bros AC & Heating can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at (833)-466-3322 to set up an appointment with us.
