How often should a home furnace be replaced?

Most residential furnaces need to be replaced every 18 to 20 years. However, there are several factors that can affect a furnace’s lifespan. For example, the age of the furnace, the amount of damage it has received, and how often it is used can all play a role in determining when it needs to be replaced. The best way to determine when your furnace needs to be replaced is by contacting a licensed HVAC technician. They can inspect your furnace and provide you with a recommendation on when it should be replaced.

What if my furnace hasn’t been acting right lately? Does that mean I’ll need to replace it?

If your furnace is not functioning properly, it may be time to consider repairing or replacing it. Some signs that your furnace is not working well include dramatic temperature fluctuations, abnormal dust accumulation, drafty rooms, and rising energy bills. These are all indicators that your furnace may be damaged or outdated and in need of replacement or repair. A licensed HVAC professional will be able to tell you if your unit needs to be repaired or replaced.
