When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

December 30, 2014

Your furnace works nonstop during the colder months of the year. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the chilliest days of the year in Grand Prairie. You may not even realize it could happen 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 Bon Air Service Company team can help. We’ve compiled this list of symptoms that your furnace may be showing that will let you know it should probably be replaced.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t heating evenly, 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 save 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 inspected by the pros at Bon Air Service Company. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more often. And rattling sounds could be telling you that inner pieces aren’t functioning 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 needing furnace repair frequently, it’s time to think about a new system. Delaying 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 up there, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Grand Prairie, the team at Bon Air Service Company can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 972-332-1028 to set up an appointment with us.
