If you’re asking this question, you’re likely in one of two positions:
- You had a new furnace installed (we hope we installed it!) and you’re curious about how many years of good heating performance you’re going to get from this investment.
- You’ve had your current furnace for many years—you may have lost count—and wonder when it will be advisable to replace it.
If you’re in the first position, it’s good that you’re thinking ahead. A bit of knowledge can help your furnace last even longer. If you’re in the second, you’re entering a planning stage and may have reason to think your furnace won’t last much longer. It’s important that you don’t just let the furnace run until it completely fails. Getting ahead of an emergency breakdown is part of wise home comfort and will help you avoid high bills and unnecessary expenses.
