When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works constantly during the winter. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the chilliest days of the year in Auburn. 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 Forster Heating 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 reaching the end of its lifespan. This problem could be remedied 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

Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Forster Heating. Some people discover that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more frequently. And rattling sounds could mean inner pieces aren’t functioning properly.

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 think about a new system. Waiting too long to make 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 Auburn, the team at Forster Heating can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 530-885-8081 to set up an appointment with us.
