This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the most frigid days of the year in Carson City.

The Anderson Heating & A/C team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be displaying that will let you know it may be time to replace it.

You could save your furnace and save some money with increased energy efficiency. Your furnace is noisy Always have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Anderson Heating & A/C.
