Your furnace works constantly during the winter. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the chilliest days of the year in Derby. 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 Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be exhibiting that will let you know it may be time to replace it.
Some rooms are colder than others
If your rooms aren’t heating evenly, 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 keep 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
Always have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning. 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 suggest that inner pieces aren’t functioning as they should be.
Too many repairs
It’s no secret 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 start researching a new system. Waiting on a new purchase could end up costing 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 might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system. In Derby, the team at Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 203-772-8319 to set up an appointment with us.
