When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Heating

Your furnace works around the clock during the winter. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the coldest days of the year in Lexington. 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 best place to be. The Kelley Mechanical team can help. We’ve created this list of symptoms that your furnace may be exhibiting that will let you know it should probably be replaced.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t heating evenly, 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 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

Have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Kelley Mechanical. Some people learn 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 be telling you that 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 making appointments for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to think about a new system. Waiting too long to make 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 up there, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Lexington, the team at Kelley Mechanical can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 859-209-3003 or set up an appointment with us online to see what we can offer.
