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 Winnipeg. 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 greatest place to be. The Kirkfield 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 all approximately the same temperature, your furnace may be struggling. Sometimes this problem can be solved by ensuring 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 better energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Kirkfield 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 frequently. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t working properly.

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 start researching a new system. Delaying a new purchase could end up costing 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, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Winnipeg, the team at Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 204-272-8128 to set up an appointment with us.
