When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

December 30, 2014

Your furnace works constantly during the coldest months. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the chilliest days of the year in Bartlesville. 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 best place to be. The Farris Heating & Air 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 reaching the end of its lifespan. 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 save your furnace from working harder than it needs to. You could save your furnace and save some money with improved energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Farris Heating & Air. Some people find that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to switch on and off more frequently. 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 start researching a new system. Waiting on a new purchase could 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 Bartlesville, the team at Farris Heating & Air can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 918-534-8194 to set up an appointment with us.
