The furnace is older than 15 years: A furnace’s age impacts its effectiveness. The average lifespan of a furnace is between 15-20 years. You may want to consider a replacement if your furnace is over 15 years old even if you think it is in good working order.
Energy bills are higher despite usage staying the same: Furnaces that have become inefficient have to work harder to provide proper heating, resulting in more expensive heating bills. Consider spending the money to replace your furnace and enjoy the benefits of a reduced bill during the life of your new appliance.
Rooms in your house are heating unevenly: Changing your thermostat constantly to feel more comfortable could be a sign your furnace is not distributing heat evenly throughout the house. This may mean you have an old or faulty furnace that needs replacing.
The furnace is excessively noisy or develops rattles, buzzes or hums: It’s highly likely that if your appliance is making these noises it has some major mechanical issues and that replacement may be necessary.
The furnace has needed frequent repairs over the past two years: Are you calling for heating service months after your last repair? Your furnace could be reaching its lifespan and needs replacing. Keep in mind that repair costs will eventually outweigh the costs of getting a new unit.
