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 chilliest days of the year in Bend. 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 most advantageous place to be. The Tri County Climate Control LLC 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 reaching the end of its lifespan. Sometimes this problem can be solved by confirming that your ductwork is properly sealed. Properly sealing your ducts can not only keep your home evenly heated, but it can save 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
Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Tri County Climate Control LLC. Some people find that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more frequently. And rattling sounds could be telling you that inner pieces aren’t functioning normally.
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 making appointments for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to look into a new system. Waiting too long to make a new purchase could actually cost 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 up there, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system. In Bend, the team at Tri County Climate Control LLC can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 541-238-2797 to set up an appointment with us.
