When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works around the clock during the colder months of the year. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the most frigid days of the year in St. Louis. You may not even think it’s a possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in crisis mode, and that’s not the most advantageous place to be. The Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating team can help. We’ve compiled this list of symptoms that your furnace may be exhibiting 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 struggling. 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 inspected by the pros at Morgner Inc. 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 frequently. And rattling sounds could mean inner pieces aren’t operating normally.

Too many repairs

It’s no secret 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 St. Louis, the team at Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 314-262-4541 to set up an appointment with us.
