When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works constantly during the colder months of the year. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to fail 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 emergency 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 may be time to replace it.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t heating evenly, 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 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

Always have a noisy furnace checked out 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 as they should be.

Too many repairs

It’s no secret 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 on 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 older, 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.
