When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works nonstop during the coldest months. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the chilliest days of the year in Oxford. 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 Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. team can help. We’ve compiled 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 heating evenly, 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 save 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 Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. Some people discover 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 operating normally.

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 look into a new system. Delaying a new purchase could 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 older, it could be to you advantage to get a new, efficient and quiet system. In Oxford, the team at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 662-281-1231 to set up an appointment with us.
