When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

December 30, 2014

Your furnace works around the clock during the coldest months. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the coldest days of the year in Ronkonkoma. 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 greatest place to be. The Cool Power LLC team can help. We’ve pulled together 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 failing. Sometimes this problem can be solved by making sure 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

Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Cool Power LLC . Some people discover that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more than it should. 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 needing furnace repair frequently, it’s time to look into 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 to be that old, it could be to you advantage to get a new, efficient and quiet system. In Ronkonkoma, the team at Cool Power LLC can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 631-246-4029 to set up an appointment with us.
