When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works constantly during the coldest months. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the most frigid days of the year in Rochester. You may not even think it’s a possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in emergency mode, and that’s not the best place to be. The Brogan Heating & AC Inc team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be exhibiting 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 better energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Always have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Brogan Heating & AC Inc. Some people find that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to turn on and off more frequently. And rattling sounds could mean 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 start researching a new system. Waiting on 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 up there, it could be to you advantage to get a new, efficient and quiet system. In Rochester, the team at Brogan Heating & AC Inc can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 507-218-0088 to set up an appointment with us.
