When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Heating

Your furnace works around the clock during the winter. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the most frigid days of the year in Brandon. You may not even think about the possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in disaster mode, and that’s not the most advantageous place to be. The Brandon Heating and Plumbing (1998) Ltd. team can help. We’ve compiled this list of symptoms that your furnace may be displaying that will let you know a replacement may be necessary.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t evenly heated, your furnace may be struggling. 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

Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Brandon Heating and Plumbing (1998) Ltd.. Some people find that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more than it should. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t working 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 needing furnace repair frequently, it’s time to look into a new system. Waiting on a new purchase could end up costing 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 could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Brandon, the team at Brandon Heating and Plumbing (1998) Ltd. can help you decide what would be best for you and your home.
