When to Replace your Old Furnace

 Your Furnace’s Age 

Most furnace models can last for around 20-30 years, as long as they’re properly maintained. Of course, that number varies based on the amount of care your furnace receives. Some furnaces may last only ten to fifteen years. 

Once your furnace hits the fifteen year mark, you’ll need to pay especially close attention to it, as it may be time for it to be replaced. Start paying closer attention to your home’s furnace, and be sure to have an inspection and tune-up performed at least once a year. 

Rising Energy Costs 

If you’ve noticed your home’s heating bills are getting more expensive but you haven’t been using your heater any more frequently, you may have a problem with your furnace. You may need to have maintenance performed on the unit, or it may be getting close to time to replace it. Furnaces will lose efficiency as they age, and that can end up costing you a lot in energy bills. If you notice these trends, you should start to consider whether it’s time to replace your furnace. 

Our heating experts can help you determine whether or not you need to replace your furnace. If you just need repairs, we can handle that job, and if it’s time to replace the unit, we’ll be ready for that as well. 

Other Clues 

You should be vigilant about checking on your furnace, looking at it around once every week. If you notice an excessive build up soot, rust, or dust, that could signify something is seriously wrong with your furnace. You also need repairs for the furnace, but if you do need a replacement, it’s better to find out sooner than later.
