When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works constantly during the coldest months. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the most frigid days of the year in Carlsbad. You may not even think about the possibility 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 Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services team can help. We’ve created this list of symptoms that your furnace may be showing 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. This problem could be remedied by confirming that your ductwork is properly sealed. Properly sealing your ducts can not only keep your home evenly heated, but it can prevent 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 Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more often. And rattling sounds could be telling you that inner pieces aren’t functioning properly.

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 think about a new system. Waiting too long to make a new purchase could actually cost 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, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Carlsbad, the team at Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services can help you decide what would be best for you and your home.
