When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works constantly during the colder months of the year. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the most frigid days of the year in Plover. You may not even think it’s a 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 Point Heating & Cooling team can help. We’ve compiled 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 confirming that 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 improved energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Be sure to have a noisy furnace inspected by the pros at Point Heating & Cooling. Some people find that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to turn on and off more frequently. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t functioning as they should be.

Too many repairs

It is known 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 think about a new system. Delaying a new purchase could actually 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 older, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Plover, the team at Point Heating & Cooling can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 715-345-1979 or set up an appointment with us online to see what we can offer.
