When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works constantly during the winter. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the chilliest days of the year in Odessa. You may not even realize it could happen until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in crisis mode, and that’s not the best place to be. The Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning team can help. We’ve created this list of symptoms that your furnace may be displaying that will let you know it may be time to replace it.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t all approximately the same temperature, your furnace may be failing. You might be able to solve this problem by making sure 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 increased energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to turn on and off more often. And rattling sounds could be telling you that inner pieces aren’t operating 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’re needing furnace repair frequently, it’s time to start researching a new system. Delaying a new purchase could end up costing 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 up there, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Odessa, the team at Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 432-237-0168 to set up an appointment with us.
