When Should You Replace Your Furnace?12/30/2014 Your furnace works constantly during the winter. This heavy workload often causes older furnaces to break down on some of the most frigid days of the year in Locust. You may not even think about the possibility until you come home to a freezing house one day. Then you’re in disaster mode, and that’s not the most advantageous place to be. The Dynamic Comfort Solutions team can help. We’ve created 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. Sometimes this problem can be solved 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 increased energy efficiency. Your furnace is noisy Be sure to have a noisy furnace checked out by the pros at Dynamic Comfort Solutions.

And rattling sounds could suggest that inner pieces aren’t operating 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. Delaying a new purchase could end up costing you more money in the long run.
