When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works nonstop during the winter. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the most frigid days of the year in Saint Louis. You may not even think it’s a 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 Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating team can help. We’ve compiled this list of symptoms that your furnace may be displaying 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. This problem could be remedied by confirming that 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 Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating. Some people discover 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 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’re needing furnace repair frequently, it’s time to look into a new system. Waiting too long to make a new purchase could 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 up there, it could be to you advantage to get a new, efficient and quiet system. In Saint Louis, the team at Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating can help you decide what would be best for you and your home.
