When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

Your furnace works constantly during the colder months of the year. This intense workload often causes older furnaces to fail on some of the chilliest days of the year in Manassas Park. 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 greatest place to be. The Woody's Sudden Service Inc team can help. We’ve compiled 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 struggling. You might be able to solve this problem by confirming that your ductwork is properly sealed. Properly sealing your ducts can not only keep your home evenly heated, but it can keep your furnace from working harder than it needs to. You could save your furnace and save some money with better energy efficiency.

Your furnace is noisy

Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked by the pros at Woody's Sudden Service Inc. Some people find 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 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 making appointments for furnace repair frequently, it’s time to think about a new system. Waiting on a new purchase could end up costing 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 older, you could benefit from a new, efficient and quiet system. In Manassas Park, the team at Woody's Sudden Service Inc can help you decide what would be best for you and your home. Call us at 703-278-2036 to set up an appointment with us.
