Your furnace works nonstop during the coldest months. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the most frigid days of the year in Norco and St. Charles Parish. You may not even realize it could happen 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 Mayeuxs AC & Heating team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be exhibiting that will let you know it may be time to replace it.
Some rooms are colder than others
If your rooms aren’t heating evenly, your furnace may be reaching the end of its lifespan. 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 prevent 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
Always have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Mayeuxs AC & Heating. Some people find that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more often. And rattling sounds could mean inner pieces aren’t functioning 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 find you’re calling for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to look into a new system. Delaying 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 older, it could be to you advantage to get a new, efficient and quiet system.
