When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works around the clock during the colder months of the year. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the chilliest days of the year in Tucker. 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 greatest place to be. The ACS Heating and Air Conditioning team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be displaying that will let you know it should probably be replaced.

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. 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 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

Have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at ACS Heating and 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 than it should. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t operating as they should be.

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 find you’re calling for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to start researching a new system. Delaying 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 up there, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system. In Tucker, the team at ACS Heating and Air Conditioning can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 770-450-1539 to set up an appointment with us.
