When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

December 30, 2014

Your furnace works constantly during the coldest months. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the chilliest days of the year in Marshfield. You may not even realize it could happen until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in crisis mode, and that’s not the most advantageous place to be. The House of Heating Incorporated team can help. We’ve pulled together 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 evenly heated, your furnace may be failing. This problem could be remedied by making sure 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

Always have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at House of Heating Incorporated. Some people discover that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to turn on and off more often. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t functioning 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 needing furnace repair frequently, it’s time to think about 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 up there, it could be to you advantage to get a new, efficient and quiet system. In Marshfield, the team at House of Heating Incorporated can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 715-384-3163 to set up an appointment with us.
