When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

December 30, 2014

Your furnace works around the clock during the colder months of the year. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the coldest days of the year in Montoursville. 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 most advantageous place to be. The Airmen HVAC Service team can help. We’ve compiled 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 heating evenly, your furnace may be failing. 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 improved energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Airmen HVAC Service. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to turn on and off more frequently. And rattling sounds could be telling you that inner pieces aren’t working normally.

Too many repairs

It is known 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 think about a new system. Delaying 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 to be that old, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Montoursville, the team at Airmen HVAC Service can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 570-322-3131 to set up an appointment with us.
