Your furnace works constantly during the winter. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the most frigid days of the year in Bishop. 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 Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning 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 heating evenly, your furnace may be struggling. 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 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
Be sure to have a noisy furnace inspected by the pros at Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning. Some people discover that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more than it should. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t working properly.
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 making appointments for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to look into a new system. Delaying 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, it could be to you advantage to get a new, efficient and quiet system. In Bishop, the team at Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 760-784-9034 to set up an appointment with us.
