Your furnace works nonstop during the coldest months. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the chilliest days of the year in Carson City. You may not even realize it could happen until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in crisis mode, and that’s not the most advantageous place to be. The Anderson Heating & A/C team can help. We’ve compiled this list of symptoms that your furnace may be displaying that will let you know it should probably be replaced.
Some rooms are colder than others
If your rooms aren’t evenly heated, your furnace may be failing. You might be able to solve this problem by ensuring 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 better energy efficiency.
Your furnace is noisy
Always have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Anderson Heating & A/C. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to switch on and off more often. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t working normally.
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 making appointments for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to think about a new system. Waiting too long to make a new purchase could 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 to be that old, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system. In Carson City, the team at Anderson Heating & A/C can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 775-230-7628 to set up an appointment with us.
