You can get your furnace to last quite a long time, assuming you schedule prompt repairs and annual maintenance. However, no furnace can last forever. Sooner or later, you’re going to need to install a new furnace in your home. It’s important that you be able to recognize when your furnace is on its last legs so that you can have it replaced before it dies on you. Let’s take a look at some of the signs that you need a new furnace.
Your heating bills are going to rise and fall depending on how much you use your system. However, the older a furnace gets, the more wear and tear it accumulates. As the system wears down more, it will be forced to stay on for longer and longer periods of time in order to compensate. This will cause the monthly bills to spike. If your heating bills are going up much faster than they should be, it may be that you need a new system.
Even brand new furnaces might need repairs every once in a while. However, the closer a furnace gets to the end of its life, the more worn out it will be. This will cause various parts of the system to fail in groups, requiring that the system be repaired far more often. If you need to repair your furnace every few months, it’s a definite sign that you need a new one.
Once a furnace gets older than around 15 years, it becomes more and more inefficient to keep running. If your furnace is older than 15 years, it’s very likely that you’d be better served by replacing the system. Have a professional examine your furnace, to make sure.
