When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works constantly during the coldest months. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the chilliest days of the year in Greensburg. 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 Wallpe Heating & Cooling team can help. We’ve pulled together 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 heating evenly, your furnace may be struggling. 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 increased energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Wallpe Heating & Cooling. Some people find 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 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 needing furnace repair frequently, it’s time to think about a new system. Delaying a new purchase could actually 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 up there, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Greensburg, the team at Wallpe Heating & Cooling can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 812-663-7252 to set up an appointment with us.
