When Should You Replace Your Furnace?12/30/2014 Your furnace works constantly during the winter. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the most frigid days of the year in Humble. 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 Arrings A/C & Heating team can help. We’ve compiled 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 making sure 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 better energy efficiency. Your furnace is noisy Always have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Arrings A/C & Heating.
