When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works constantly during the winter. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the most frigid days of the year in Alice. You may not even think it’s a 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 Rescue Heating & Air 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 reaching the end of its lifespan. Sometimes this problem can be solved by making sure 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 improved energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Always have a noisy furnace inspected by the pros at Rescue Heating & Air . Some people find 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 be telling you that inner pieces aren’t operating properly.

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 look into a new system. Delaying a new purchase could actually cost 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 up there, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system. In Alice, the team at Rescue Heating & Air can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 361-265-4371 to set up an appointment with us.
