When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works nonstop during the coldest months. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the coldest days of the year in Wyandotte. You may not even think it’s a possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in crisis mode, and that’s not the best place to be. The Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be showing that will let you know it may be time to replace it.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t all approximately the same temperature, your furnace may be reaching the end of its lifespan. This problem could be remedied by making sure 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 improved energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning. Some people learn 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 functioning normally.

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 making appointments for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to look into a new system. Waiting on a new purchase could end up costing you more money in the long run.

The average lifespan of a furnace or boiler is about 15 years. So, if your system is getting to be that old, it could be to you advantage to get a new, efficient and quiet system. In Wyandotte, the team at Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning can help you decide what would be best for you and your home.
