Signs You Need a New Furnace

As we get deeper into heating season, you’re going to start relying on your furnace more and more often to keep warm. If your furnace isn’t prepared for yet another season of high work stress, it’s best that you replace it now. You don’t want your heater to break down on you in the middle of winter, do you? Read on to find out more about how to tell if you need a new furnace.

Higher Bills

The older a furnace gets, the more it will wear down and the more efficiency it will lose. This efficiency loss forces the system to stay on for a longer period of time in order to compensate, which makes it more expensive to operate. If your monthly heating bills are going up for no apparent reason, you may need a new furnace.

Rising Repair Frequency

You’re going to need to repair your furnace every once in a while no matter what. The closer the system gets to the end of its life, however, the more prone various parts of it will be to failure. As the system ages, you’ll need to repair it more and more often. If you need to have your furnace fixed every few months, it’s better to just replace it.

Furnace Age

Furnaces are manufactured to last around 10 to 15 years. Once a system gets older than that, it starts to have all kinds of issues that make it more difficult and expensive to keep up and running. If your furnace is older than 15 years, talk to a professional about whether or not it would be a good idea to have it replaced.
