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 East Bernard. 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 best place to be. The E.B. Air, LLC team can help. We’ve pulled together 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 all approximately the same temperature, your furnace may be struggling. You might be able to solve this problem by confirming that 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 increased energy efficiency.
Your furnace is noisy
Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at E.B. Air, LLC. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more frequently. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t working 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’re making appointments for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to start researching a new system. Delaying a new purchase could actually cost you more money in the long run.
The average life 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 East Bernard, the team at E.B. Air, LLC can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 979-335-4262 to set up an appointment with us.
