When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

December 30, 2014

Your furnace works around the clock during the colder months of the year. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the coldest days of the year in Central Point. 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 most advantageous place to be. The Titan Heating & Air Conditioning team can help. We’ve compiled 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 reaching the end of its lifespan. 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 Titan Heating & Air Conditioning. 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 suggest that inner pieces aren’t operating normally.

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. Waiting on a new purchase could actually cost 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 Central Point, the team at Titan Heating & Air Conditioning can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 514-600-5499 to set up an appointment with us.
