When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works around the clock during the colder months of the year. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the coldest days of the year in Omaha. 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 The Frazier Company team can help. We’ve created this list of symptoms that your furnace may be displaying 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 failing. Sometimes this problem can be solved by ensuring 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 inspected by the pros at The Frazier Company. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to switch on and off more frequently. And rattling sounds could be telling you that inner pieces aren’t working 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 think about a new system. Waiting on a new purchase could cost you more money in the long run.

The average life of a furnace or boiler is about 15 years. So, if your system is getting up there, it could be to you advantage to get a new, efficient and quiet system. In Omaha, the team at The Frazier Company can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 402-628-0206 to set up an appointment with us.
