If your heating system was installed around the year 2000 or earlier and you’re deciding whether to replace your furnace, you should.
The average furnace lasts anywhere between 15-20 years with proper care and maintenance. After about two decades, components begin to fail and need to be replaced more regularly, often making it more affordable to upgrade than to spend money on constant repairs. Additionally, after that length of time, any type of manufacturer warranty usually has expired, requiring you to pay out-of-pocket for any replacement parts needed.
Another benefit when you replace your furnace is that you’ll enjoy increased energy efficiency. The technology driving heating systems has significantly evolved and newer furnaces require less energy to heat the same amount of space. After upgrading, you’ll likely notice an improvement in home comfort (more even and reliable heating and less noise during operation) while also seeing a decrease in monthly hydro and natural gas energy bills.
As heating systems age, they are prone to more breakdowns. It often seems that a heating system breaks during the most inconvenient time, like in the middle of the night. Don’t wait for the bitter winter weather to arrive to replace your furnace. Take a proactive approach to ensure that you’re not rushed into a decision and you’re able to take advantage of off-season pricing and manufacturer discounts.
