Your furnace works nonstop during the colder months of the year. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the chilliest days of the year in Florissant. 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 B & B Heating & Cooling 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.
Some rooms are colder than others
If your rooms aren’t evenly heated, your furnace may be reaching the end of its lifespan. 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 improved energy efficiency.
Your furnace is noisy
Have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at B & B Heating & Cooling. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more than it should. And rattling sounds could be telling you 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’re needing furnace repair frequently, it’s time to look into a new system. Delaying 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 older, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system. In Florissant, the team at B & B Heating & Cooling can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 314-325-7552 to set up an appointment with us.
