As with any appliance, over time, even with regular maintenance and proper care, your furnace will eventually need replacement.
Most furnaces last between 15 and 20 years. If you have a furnace that is older than 15 years, it’s time to reevaluate your system. Many times replacement is a more cost-effective solution.
Homeowners with older furnaces should have their system checked for the following reasons:
First and foremost, your health is our main concern. A broken or malfunctioning furnace has the potential to leak harmful carbon monoxide into your home. If you notice the pilot light is yellow instead of blue, you need to call One Hour Heating and Air right away at (609) 445-4488.
Yearly maintenance and some repairs are just a fact of life. In fact, we recommended yearly evaluations and even offer furnace maintenance plans to fit your budget. However, if your furnace needs a little too much TLC, it could be a sign that it’s time for a replacement. With a new system, you’ll save money in the long term because you’ll avoid constant, costly repairs.
Overtime, furnaces will slow down and lose their efficiency which wastes energy and money. Consider replacing with a new, energy-efficient furnace that is good for your home’s needs and is easy on the environment.
Especially when winter hits, you want to make sure your home is comfortable. If your old furnace is struggling to maintain your preferred temperature, it’s time to ditch it. Old furnaces can also affect indoor air quality as well because it could be harboring dirt, dust, or bacteria.
