When Should You Replace Your Furnace?12/30/2014 Your furnace works nonstop during the winter. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the coldest days of the year in Rocky Mount. You may not even think about the possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in emergency mode, and that’s not the greatest place to be. The Davis Heating & Air Conditioning team can help. We’ve pulled together this list of symptoms that your furnace may be showing that will let you know it may be time to replace it. Some rooms are colder than others If your rooms aren’t all approximately the same temperature, your furnace may be failing. 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 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 Have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Davis Heating & Air Conditioning. Some people learn that their system is actually too small for their home, which can cause it to cycle between on and off more than it should. And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t functioning normally. 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’re making appointments for 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.
