When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works around the clock during the winter. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the chilliest days of the year in Omaha. You may not even think about the possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in emergency 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 struggling. 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 prevent 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 The Frazier Company. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to turn on and off more often. And rattling sounds could mean inner pieces aren’t functioning 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 look into 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 older, you could benefit from 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 402-896-5900 to set up an appointment with us.
