When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works nonstop during the colder months of the year. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the coldest days of the year in Middle Georgia. You may not even think it’s a 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

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 switch on and off more frequently. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t working properly.

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 look into 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, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Middle Georgia, the team at Air Concepts of Middle Georgia can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 478-200-5689 to set up an appointment with us.
