When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

December 30, 2014

Your furnace works around the clock during the colder months of the year. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the most frigid days of the year in the Rio Grande Valley. 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 greatest place to be. The Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. team can help. We’ve pulled together 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 struggling. 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

Have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C.. 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 suggest that inner pieces aren’t working 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 think about a new system. Waiting on a new purchase could actually 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 older, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In the Rio Grande Valley, the team at Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 956-381-1162 to set up an appointment with us.
