When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works constantly during the winter. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the most frigid days of the year in East Bernard. You may not even think about the possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in emergency mode, and that’s not the greatest place to be. The E.B. Air, LLC team can help. We’ve created this list of symptoms that your furnace may be displaying that will let you know it should probably be replaced.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t evenly heated, your furnace may be failing. This problem could be remedied by confirming that 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 better energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Have a noisy furnace checked out 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 turn on and off more often. And rattling sounds could be telling you that inner pieces aren’t operating 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 look into a new system. Delaying a new purchase could end up costing 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 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.
