When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works around the clock during the coldest months. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the chilliest days of the year in Wheeling. 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 best place to be. The Local HVAC Repair & Service team can help. We’ve compiled this list of symptoms that your furnace may be displaying that will let you know it should probably be replaced.

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 making sure 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 increased energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Local HVAC Repair & Service . Some people discover that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more than it should. And rattling sounds could mean inner pieces aren’t operating 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 making appointments for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to look into a new system. Waiting on 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 older, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system. In Wheeling, the team at Local HVAC Repair & Service can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 224-300-4806 to set up an appointment with us.
