Your furnace works nonstop during the winter. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the chilliest days of the year in Milledgeville and Middle Georgia. 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 Air Concepts of Middle Georgia 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 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 save 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 out by the pros at Air Concepts of Middle Georgia. Some people find 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 suggest that inner pieces aren’t functioning 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 think about a new system. Waiting too long to make a new purchase could actually 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 up there, it could be to you advantage to get a new, efficient and quiet system.
