When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Heating

Your furnace works around the clock during the colder months of the year. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the coldest days of the year in Westminster. 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 best place to be. The True Heating & Cooling team can help. We’ve compiled this list of symptoms that your furnace may be showing that will let you know a replacement may be necessary.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t evenly heated, your furnace may be struggling. This problem could be remedied by ensuring 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 by the pros at True Heating & Cooling. Some people discover 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 as they should be.

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’re needing furnace repair frequently, it’s time to think about a new system. Waiting too long to make a new purchase could end up costing 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, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system. In Westminster, the team at True Heating & Cooling can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 720-316-1898 to set up an appointment with us.
