When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Heating

Your furnace works constantly during the winter. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the chilliest days of the year in Marshfield. You may not even think about the possibility 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 House of Heating Incorporated team can help. We’ve compiled this list of symptoms that your furnace may be exhibiting that will let you know a replacement may be necessary.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t evenly heated, your furnace may be struggling. Sometimes this problem can be solved by confirming that your ductwork is properly sealed. Properly sealing your ducts can not only keep your home evenly heated, but it can save 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

Be sure to 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 working as they should be.

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. Waiting too long to make a new purchase could actually 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 might be better off with 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.
