What Nobody Really Tells You About Furnace Replacement

Keeping your home warm this winter depends on the status of your furnace. When your furnace shows signs of its age, or if you have been sinking money in yearly repairs, it might be time to upgrade your system and start looking for a furnace replacement. 

Older units can still do a fine job at heating your home, but there are a couple of downsides. First, furnaces that are older than 15 years are nowhere near as efficient as the newer models today. With age, your furnace may show signs of wear. When it takes longer to heat your home, your furnace is using more energy, which will drive your utility bills higher.

Also, as furnaces age, the parts can become less dependable. With annual tune-ups and maintenance, you can spot and fix some potential problems, but needing frequent fixes add up and those costs pile higher than what it would take to replace your unit.

Age is a primary factor when deciding on when to replace your furnace. However, regardless of age, if you need a more expensive repair, such as one that could cost half as much as it would take to replace the furnace, you might be better off spending more money now for a more dependable and more efficient system.
