Your furnace works around the clock during the coldest months. This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the coldest days of the year in York. You may not even think it’s a 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 Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be exhibiting that will let you know it should probably be replaced.
Some rooms are colder than others
If your rooms aren’t heating evenly, 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 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
Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning. Some people discover that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to turn on and off more than it should. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t working 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 start researching a new system. Waiting on a new purchase could end up costing 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 older, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In York, the team at Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 717-383-4479 to set up an appointment with us.
