When to Replace A Furnace?

Published On: December 20, 2019Categories: Furnaces

The cold weather season is here and it’s time for you to make sure your furnace is ready to keep you warm this winter.

Furnaces are not designed to last forever, but how do you know when it’s time to have it replaced? We understand that a new furnace is not cheap, so before you go shopping for a replacement, it’s important to understand the tell-tale signs that indicate your system may need an upgrade:

  • You’re paying for repair services too frequently.
  • Your heating bills are high even when you don’t change the thermostat.
  • Your furnace is making a lot of noise.
  • You’re unable to keep a consistent temperature throughout the home.
  • Your furnace is older than 15 years.

How Long Should A Furnace Last?

Old furnace models can serve homeowners for 18-20 years on average, depending on certain factors. For instance, if you’ve had your furnace properly and consistently maintained, you can prolong its use. Today, more energy-efficient models are available on the market and you can expect these to last you anywhere between 20-30 years.

How much does it cost to replace a furnace?

The cost of replacing your furnace can vary significantly. It depends on what type of furnace you choose and the installation requirements, in addition to several other considerations. On average, Canadian homeowners may spend anywhere from $4000-$5500 for a furnace replacement.
