When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works constantly during the coldest months. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the chilliest days of the year in Hendersonville. You may not even think it’s a possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in crisis mode, and that’s not the greatest place to be. The Superior Comfort Systems team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be exhibiting 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 failing. 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 keep 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

Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Superior Comfort Systems. Some people learn 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 mean inner pieces aren’t working properly.

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 up there, it could be to you advantage to get a new, efficient and quiet system. In Hendersonville, the team at Superior Comfort Systems can help you decide what would be best for you and your home.
