After about 16 – 20 years, it’s likely time to replace your furnace. This is the typical lifespan of furnaces made today, so even if you have a year or two to go, reach out to the heating & furnace replacement specialists at Torch Service Company.
When your furnace ages, there will be parts that start failing that need repair and replacement. As soon as the furnace or heating unit begins to break down, you will be paying for service calls and labor, on top of parts that need to be repaired. These costs add up over time, so you will need to factor in costs over the long run. If the repairs become a significant percentage of what the new furnace will cost, making the switch to a full furnace replacement will be a more financially sound decision.
Older furnace models are not as energy-efficient as newer ones. You will be wasting energy and paying more on your heating bills the longer you have the furnace. High-efficiency furnaces can pay off in a large way when it comes to energy savings over time.
