This demanding workload often causes older furnaces to stop working on some of the most frigid days of the year in Baltimore. 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 most advantageous place to be. The Quality Refrigeration team can help. We’ve compiled 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 heating evenly, your furnace may be reaching the end of its lifespan. 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 Quality Refrigeration.
