When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

December 30, 2014

Your furnace works constantly during the colder months of the year. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the most frigid days of the year in Belton. You may not even realize it could happen until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in crisis mode, and that’s not the greatest place to be. The Bell Air Conditioning Inc. team can help. We’ve created this list of symptoms that your furnace may be showing that will let you know it should probably be replaced.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t heating evenly, your furnace may be failing. Sometimes this problem can be solved by ensuring your ductwork is properly sealed. Properly sealing your ducts can not only keep your home evenly heated, but it can keep 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 Bell Air Conditioning Inc.. Some people find that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to turn on and off more than it should. And rattling sounds could mean inner pieces aren’t operating as they should be.

Too many repairs

It is known 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. Delaying a new purchase could actually cost 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 up there, it could be to you advantage to get a new, efficient and quiet system. In Belton, the team at Bell Air Conditioning Inc. can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 254-307-9572 to set up an appointment with us.
