When Should You Replace Your Furnace?12/30/2014 Your furnace works around the clock during the coldest months. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the chilliest days of the year in Humble. You may not even think it’s a possibility 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 Air Houston Mechanical LLC team can help. We’ve created this list of symptoms that your furnace may be exhibiting 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 reaching the end of its lifespan. 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 improved energy efficiency. Your furnace is noisy Always have a noisy furnace inspected by the pros at Air Houston Mechanical LLC. Some people find that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to switch on and off more than it should. And rattling sounds could mean inner pieces aren’t functioning properly. Too many repairs It’s no secret that older furnaces often fail, and before that happens they become less and less energy efficient. If you find you’re calling for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to look into a new system. Waiting too long to make a new purchase could cost you more money in the long run.
