Your furnace works nonstop during the colder months of the year. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the coldest days of the year in Eastland. 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 best place to be. The J & J Air Conditioning team can help. We’ve pulled together 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 heating evenly, your furnace may be reaching the end of its lifespan. This problem could be remedied by confirming that 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
Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at J & J Air Conditioning. 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 suggest 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 find you’re calling for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to look into a new system. Waiting too long to make a new purchase could cost 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 up there, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system. In Eastland, the team at J & J Air Conditioning can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 254-355-3833 to set up an appointment with us.
