Signs You Need a New Furnace

No matter how well you take care of your furnace, there will come a point when you need to install a new one in your home. When that time comes, it’s important that you be able to recognize it as soon as possible so that you can replace it. You don’t want your system to break down in the middle of a cold winter month, right? Read on to find out more about signs that you need to install a new furnace in your home.

Rising Costs

As a furnace gets older, it will accumulate more and more wear and tear. This will eventually cause it to start losing efficiency. In order to compensate for the lost efficiency, the system will start to stay on for longer and longer periods of time. This will contribute to a rising operating cost for the system. If your monthly bills are going up for no apparent reason, it may be that you need to replace the system.

Repairs Spiking

Furnaces of all ages are going to need repairs every once in a while. The older the furnace is, though, the more likely it will be to have parts fail in groups. This causes the system to need repairs far more often than it otherwise would. If you need to repair your furnace multiple times a year, it’s definitely a sign that you need a new one.


The average furnace is meant to last right around 15 years, after which point it begins to develop a wide range of issues like those listed above. If your furnace is older than 15 years, ask a professional about whether or not it would be a good idea to replace it.
