A good furnace should last for 10-15 years. But when the old girl is getting too aged to hum, maybe it’s time to start thinking about investing in a new furnace. How do you know when the time is right?
Consider how much you are investing in furnace repairs versus a new system. Furnace technology has come a long way since the mid 90’s when those old units were installed. Today’s technology is efficient, quiet and works with your house. Think of your furnace like a car. When you keep putting cash into it every few months to make it purr (but it’s still wheezing), it may be time to move on. After all, who wants a break down on the coldest day of the year? Then you’ve really got a problem.
