When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works constantly during the winter. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the chilliest days of the year in Rock Hill. You may not even realize it could happen until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in disaster mode, and that’s not the best place to be. The US Air Heating and Cooling team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be exhibiting that will let you know it may be time to replace it.

Some rooms are colder than others

If your rooms aren’t evenly heated, your furnace may be failing. You might be able to solve this problem by ensuring 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

Always have a noisy furnace inspected by the pros at US Air Heating and Cooling. Some people discover 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 functioning 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 find you’re calling for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to start researching a new system. Waiting too long to make a new purchase could end up costing 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 to be that old, you might be better off with a new, efficient and quiet system. In Rock Hill, the team at US Air Heating and Cooling can help you decide what would be best for you and your home.
