When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works constantly during the coldest months. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the coldest days of the year in Denton. You may not even realize it could happen until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in crisis mode, and that’s not the most advantageous place to be. The Oak Point Heating and Air LLC 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 reaching the end of its lifespan. 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 increased energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Always have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Oak Point Heating and Air LLC. Some people discover 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 properly.

Too many repairs

It is known 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 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 older, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Denton, the team at Oak Point Heating and Air LLC can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 940-202-1202 to set up an appointment with us.
