When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works nonstop during the winter. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the coldest days of the year in Bloomington. 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 All Seasons Heating & A/C Co team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be displaying that will let you know a replacement may be necessary.

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. 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 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

Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at All Seasons Heating & A/C Co. Some people find 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 be telling you that inner pieces aren’t working 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 too long to make 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 older, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system. In Bloomington, the team at All Seasons Heating & A/C Co can help you decide what would be best for you and your home.
