When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works around the clock during the colder months of the year. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the most frigid days of the year in Dresden. You may not even think about the possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in disaster mode, and that’s not the greatest place to be. The McFadden Heating & Cooling team can help. We’ve created 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. Sometimes this problem can be solved 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 increased energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Always have a noisy furnace inspected by the pros at McFadden Heating & Cooling. Some people learn 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 suggest that inner pieces aren’t functioning 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 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 life expectancy of a furnace or boiler is about 15 years. So, if your system is getting older, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Dresden, the team at McFadden Heating & Cooling can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 1-866-781-0111 to set up an appointment with us.
