When Should You Replace Your Furnace?

furnaceSo, your furnace has started breaking down. Should you take the time to repair it, or simply replace it altogether? Ah, now there’s a question that all homeowners will likely experience at some point in their lives!

It can be tough for the average homeowner to know when to replace a furnace, but there are some concrete signs to look for.

If you think your furnace may be ready to retire, ask yourself the following questions:

  • How much money do I spend on furnace repair? If you’ve racked up tons of repair bills on your furnace over the last couple years, it’s probably time to move on. You shouldn’t be spending more money on repairs for your old furnace, than you would to purchase a new one!
  • How old is my furnace? All furnaces have a shelf life! The average lifespan of a furnace is typically said to be between 20 and 30 years. Consult your furnace’s manual, or contact an HVAC professional, to determine the age of your unit.
  • Have my heating bills gotten higher? This can be a dead giveaway when it comes to deciding whether to get a new furnace. If your heating bills have inexplicably gotten higher and higher recently, it may be time to replace your furnace.
