When Should You Replace Your Furnace?12/30/2014 Your furnace works constantly during the winter. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the chilliest days of the year in Grove City. 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 greatest place to be. The Air Quality Solutions team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be displaying that will let you know it may be time to replace it. Some rooms are colder than others If your rooms aren’t all approximately the same temperature, your furnace may be reaching the end of its lifespan. This problem could be remedied 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 Always have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Air Quality Solutions. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to turn on and off more than it should. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t operating 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. 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 older, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system.
