When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Heating

Your furnace works around the clock during the coldest months. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the chilliest days of the year in Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas. 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 greatest place to be. The Innovative Mechanical, LLC team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be showing 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 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 Innovative Mechanical, LLC. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more often. And rattling sounds could mean inner pieces aren’t operating normally.

Too many repairs

It is known 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, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas, the team at Innovative Mechanical, LLC can help you decide what would be best for you and your home.
