When is it time to replace your furnace?

Unfortunately, even the best quality heating systems don't last forever. Planning to replace your heating system before complete failure occurs allows you more time to choose an appropriate replacement and secure financing if needed. 

Five telltale signs your furnace may need replacing.

  1. Is your furnace reaching its recommended retirement age?
    The average furnace lifespan is around 15 years. If your furnace is reaching this age, chances are it will become less reliable.

  2. Does your furnace seem to run all the time, and your heating bills going through the roof?
    Old furnaces are often less efficient than new ones. Furnaces today are typically 80-96% efficient, which means they produce more heat with less energy when in operation.

  3. Are repairs becoming frequent and expensive?
    While repairing an old furnace can seem like a good option compared to buying a new unit, furnace repairs can become expensive and ultimately more costly than a purchase. Suppose you are calling an HVAC professional for service all too often. In that case, you might want to consider replacing your furnace before it becomes too much of a hassle.

  4. Are you missing key features that new technology has brought to heating your home?
    Older furnaces often lack new features, such as variable-speed motors, multi-stage burners, programmable thermostats, smart controls, zoning systems, and more.

  5. You're Thinking About Selling Your Home soon…
    If you plan on selling your home within the next few years, a new heating system could be a great investment. Replacing an old furnace can help sell your home, and with better equipment, it's more likely you will receive top dollar.
