Should I Repair or Replace My Furnace?

While you can’t predict exactly when your furnace will fail, there are a few warning signs that a furnace should be replaced.

How Old Your Furnace Is

Furnaces usually last around 12–17 years. If a furnace is 15 years old (or older), there is a higher possibility of failing. You should start to prepare for replacement by comparing new furnaces now.

Continual Repairs

You should opt for HVAC installation if a furnace needs repairs more often.

Increased Energy Bills

Old furnaces won’t be as efficient. If you’ve put off yearly furnace maintenance, you’re vulnerable to losing additional furnace efficiency and ending up with increasing energy costs.

Weak Heating

An aging heater can struggle to keep up with heating your home. Bad ductwork and a clogged furnace filter can also lead to problems.

Three Advantages of a New Furnace

While furnace installation may seem intimidating, new furnaces offer benefits worn down systems can’t contend with. Additionally, you can relax knowing you don’t need to replace your system for years to come.

A new furnace could mean:

1. Increased Efficiency

New furnaces are very reliable and provide much better efficiency ratings than equipment from 20 years ago.

2. Quieter Operation

A newer furnace includes the latest in quiet operation technology. You might not notice when it turns on.

3. Peace of Mind

Modern HVAC technology ensures your heating will stay in good shape for longer and run with greater energy efficiency. With one of our service agreements, you’ll never miss an important furnace tune-up again.
