Your furnace works around the clock during the winter. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the chilliest days of the year in West Valley City. 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 Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be showing that will let you know it should probably be replaced.
Some rooms are colder than others
If your rooms aren’t evenly heated, your furnace may be struggling. 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 keep 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 by the pros at Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning. Some people discover that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to switch on and off more than it should. And rattling sounds could mean inner pieces aren’t working as they should be.
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 start researching a new system. Waiting on 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 to be that old, it could be to you advantage to get a new, efficient and quiet system. In West Valley City, the team at Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning can help you decide what would be best for you and your home.
