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 stop working on some of the coldest days of the year in Holdrege. You may not even think about the possibility 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 Durable Service team can help. We’ve created this list of symptoms that your furnace may be displaying 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 ensuring 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

Be sure to have a noisy furnace inspected by the pros at Durable Service . Some people discover 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 be telling you that inner pieces aren’t operating as they should be.

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 making appointments 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 of a furnace or boiler is about 15 years. So, if your system is getting to be that old, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system. In Holdrege, the team at Durable Service can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 308-995-8177 to set up an appointment with us.
