When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Heating

Your furnace works around the clock during the coldest months. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the coldest 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 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 evenly heated, your furnace may be failing. 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

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 turn on and off more than it should. And rattling sounds could be telling you that inner pieces aren’t operating normally.

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 making appointments for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to look into a new system. Waiting on a new purchase could end up costing 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 up there, 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 662-350-0343 to set up an appointment with us.
