No matter how well you take care of your furnace, there will come a time when it’s too worn out to get you through another heating season. When that happens, it’s important that you be able to recognize it as soon as possible. The faster you can tell that your furnace is failing, the less likely you are to be caught by it suddenly breaking down. Let’s take a look at some of the signs that you need to install a new furnace.
Older furnaces have a lot more wear and tear on their systems, which leads to a steady decline in efficiency. As the efficiency of the system declines, it will operate for ever-increasing periods of time to compensate for it. This will cause the system to cost more and more money to operate. If your monthly bills are going up faster than they should be, you may need a new furnace.
Repairs are Rising
Furnaces need repairs every few years or so, even with regular maintenance. As a furnace nears the end of its life, though, the wear and tear on the system will start causing parts to fail in groups. If you need to repair your furnace every few months, instead of every few years, you should definitely replace it.
It’s Too Old
Furnaces are typically manufactured to last around 15 years. You can keep a furnace running after that point, if you’re willing to spend the money on it. Honestly, though, it’s far more cost effective to just replace the entire system than to repair it until it falls to pieces. Talk to a professional about getting a new furnace if yours is over 15 years of age.
