Your furnace works nonstop during the coldest months. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the most frigid days of the year in Oxford. You may not even think about the possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in emergency mode, and that’s not the most advantageous place to be. The Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be showing that will let you know it should probably be replaced.
Some rooms are colder than others
If your rooms aren’t all approximately the same temperature, your furnace may be failing. Sometimes this problem can be solved 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 increased energy efficiency.
Your furnace is noisy
Have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. 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 be telling you that inner pieces aren’t working as they should be.
Too many repairs
You probably realize 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. Delaying a new purchase could cost you more money in the long run.
The average lifespan of a furnace or boiler is about 15 years. So, if your system is getting to be that old, 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.
