When Should I Replace my Furnace?

by | Nov 6, 2018 | Heating | 0 comments

Planned replacement-replacing your heating system before it fails-is better than shivering in Winter’s extreme cold during an unanticipated breakdown.

Lifestyle Comfort Solutions suggests several factors to consider when deciding to replace your furnace now, rather than later.

Has Equipment Reached Retirement Age?

Modern furnaces are manufactured to last between 10-15 years.  While equipment may operate longer, efficiency suffers and the unit costs more to operate.

Moreover, aging equipment struggles to provide the ultimate comfort today’s homeowners demand.

When equipment reaches retirement age, it’s time to consider the benefits of upgrading.

Planned replacement allows time to design the perfect system. You can select accessories to enhance your comfort, safety, and health , You have time to explore the financing option which best serves your budget.

Have Heating Bills Skyrocketed?

Granted, some heating equipment may operate for decades.  Homeowners wrongly think they are saving money by avoiding replacement cost.

Aging equipment, manufactured when fuel costs were cheap, is deceptive.   In the long run, it’s costing the same–or more– than what you would pay for an upgraded, modern system with its comfort and efficiency benefits.

Should I Repair or Replace?

AFUE is the measure of fuel efficiency in gas furnaces.  Replace an aging 60% AFUE furnace with today’s 90% efficient model and save, on average, $33.33 on each $100.00 in fuel costs.  It’s better to invest your energy dollar in new equipment than ever-growing fuel bills, and frequent repairs.

If your furnace requires a costly repair within 2 years of retirement age, replacement is generally a better option.

Like with your car, frequent repairs are a warning sign that your furnace is coming to the end of its usable life.
