When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works around the clock during the colder months of the year. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the chilliest days of the year in Manassas. You may not even realize it could happen 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 Air-Right Energy Design, Inc. 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 heating evenly, 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 inspected by the pros at Air-Right Energy Design, Inc.. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to switch on and off more frequently. And rattling sounds could be telling you that inner pieces aren’t working as they should be.

Too many repairs

You probably realize 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 start researching a new system. Waiting too long to make 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 up there, it could be to you advantage to get a new, efficient and quiet system. In Manassas, the team at Air-Right Energy Design, Inc. can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 703-260-1148 to set up an appointment with us.
