When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works around the clock during the colder months of the year. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the most frigid days of the year in Reinholds. 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 County Line Mechanical LLC team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be showing 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 failing. 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 improved energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at County Line Mechanical LLC. Some people learn 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 suggest that 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 too long to make a new purchase could cost you more money in the long run.

The average life of a furnace or boiler is about 15 years. So, if your system is getting to be that old, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Reinholds, the team at County Line Mechanical LLC can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 717-216-0846 to set up an appointment with us.
