When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works nonstop during the coldest months. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the most frigid days of the year in Pacheco. You may not even realize it could happen 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 Clean Air HVAC team can help. We’ve created this list of symptoms that your furnace may be showing that will let you know a replacement may be necessary.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t all approximately the same temperature, your furnace may be failing. You might be able to solve this problem by confirming that 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 improved energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Have a noisy furnace inspected by the pros at Clean Air HVAC. Some people discover that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to switch on and off more often. And rattling sounds could mean inner pieces aren’t operating normally.

Too many repairs

You probably realize 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 end up costing you more money in the long run.

The average life expectancy 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 Pacheco, the team at Clean Air HVAC can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 925-689-7017 or set up an appointment with us online to see what we can offer.
