When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works around the clock during the coldest months. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the coldest days of the year in McHenry. You may not even think about the possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in disaster mode, and that’s not the best place to be. The Jett's Heating & Air Inc. team can help. We’ve compiled 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 evenly heated, your furnace may be failing. You might be able to solve this problem by making sure 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 better energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Always have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Jett's Heating & Air Inc.. 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 suggest that inner pieces aren’t working 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 start researching a new system. Delaying a new purchase could 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 to be that old, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system. In McHenry, the team at Jett's Heating & Air Inc. can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 815-410-1128 to set up an appointment with us.
