When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works nonstop during the colder months of the year. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the coldest days of the year in Alliance. You may not even realize it could happen until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in emergency mode, and that’s not the best place to be. The Jack's Refrigeration Heating and Cooling team can help. We’ve created this list of symptoms that your furnace may be displaying that will let you know a replacement may be necessary.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t all approximately the same temperature, your furnace may be reaching the end of its lifespan. 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 prevent your furnace from working harder than it needs to. You could save your furnace and save some money with increased energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Jack's Refrigeration Heating and Cooling. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to switch on and off more often. And rattling sounds could be telling you that inner pieces aren’t working properly.

Too many repairs

It is known that older furnaces often fail, and before that happens they become less and less energy efficient. If you’re making appointments for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to think about a new system. Waiting too long to make a new purchase could end up costing you more money in the long run.

The average life expectancy of a furnace or boiler is about 15 years. So, if your system is getting to be that old, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Alliance, the team at Jack's Refrigeration Heating and Cooling can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 308-646-3827 to set up an appointment with us.
