When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Heating

Your furnace works nonstop during the coldest months. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the most frigid days of the year in New Castle. You may not even think it’s a possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in disaster mode, and that’s not the most advantageous place to be. The Central Heating & Plumbing team can help. We’ve compiled this list of symptoms that your furnace may be showing 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 failing. This problem could be remedied by ensuring 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

Always have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Central Heating & Plumbing. 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 mean inner pieces aren’t working 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 find you’re calling for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to start researching a new system. Delaying a new purchase could cost you more money in the long run.

The average lifespan 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 New Castle, the team at Central Heating & Plumbing can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 724-401-1843 to set up an appointment with us.
