When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works around the clock during the colder months of the year. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the most frigid days of the year in Brighton. You may not even realize it could happen until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in disaster mode, and that’s not the most advantageous place to be. The D & D Heating & AC team can help. We’ve compiled this list of symptoms that your furnace may be displaying that will let you know a replacement may be necessary.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t evenly heated, your furnace may be struggling. Sometimes this problem can be solved by confirming that 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 increased energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at D & D Heating & AC. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to turn on and off more often. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t operating normally.

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 needing furnace repair frequently, it’s time to look into a new system. Delaying 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 to be that old, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system. In Brighton, the team at D & D Heating & AC can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 720-316-1401 to set up an appointment with us.
