Furnaces can last a long time, but they don’t last forever. No matter how well you take care of your furnace, you will eventually have to replace it. With winter just around the corner, now is the time to determine whether or not you need to have your furnace replaced. If you aren’t sure whether or not your furnace needs replacing, we can help. Read on for some of the symptoms that your furnace needs to be replaced before winter.
The older your furnace gets, the more wear and tear it accumulates. The more wear and tear it accumulates, the worse the various parts of the system will perform. This will force the furnace to stay on for longer and longer in order to reach the target temperature. Over time, this will be reflected in rising heating bills. If your furnace is costing more and more money to keep operating, it is time to replace it.
In a normal furnace, repairs should not be necessary more than once every year or two. In older furnaces, the wear and tear on the various parts of the system will cause them to fail more often. As each part of the furnace wears down a bit differently, you may have multiple parts start to fail in rapid succession. If your furnace needs repairs every couple of months, you should replace it.
Furnaces are typically manufactured to last around 20 years. Past that point, they start to develop problems like those listed above. That, combined with the advent of more efficient technologies, makes it very beneficial to replace your furnace with a new one once it reaches that age.
