The average furnace will last 15-20 years, depending on usage and maintenance. So, the first sign that it may be time to replace your furnace is if it’s been more than 15-20 years since you’ve had it installed. If that’s the case, it’s probably time to start looking for a new unit.
Signs that you may need to replace your furnace can include increasing energy bills, uneven heating, strange noises, and more. If you’re noticing any of these issues, and your system is old, it is time to replace your furnace.
Replacing a furnace may seem expensive, but it’s important to consider the energy savings that come with a newer, more efficient unit. Newer furnaces are much more energy efficient than older models, and you’ll see the savings in your energy bills (and less maintenance) over time.
