You may suspect that your furnace is nearing the end of its lifespan, in which case you’ll want to make sure a replacement is in place before colder weather arrives. Here are some telltale signs you should replace the furnace in your Maricopa, AZ home.
How Long Furnaces Last
Making allowance for differences in brand and climate, gas furnaces can last between 10 and 15 years. Oil and electric furnaces last longer, sometimes up to 25 years. This is not the case if owners neglect their systems, such as by not getting professional tune-ups at least once a year.
If your furnace hasn’t reached the 10-year mark yet and it’s acting up, the right repair may help give it a few more years of life. Much, though, depends on the nature of the repair.
Costly Repairs in the Future
You may find that your furnace isn’t blowing out warm air or blowing out as strongly as it should. While fixing this issue may be as simple as changing the filter or cleaning the heat exchanger, the solution may be more costly, such as a major part replacement. A professional can help you decide if a repair is worthwhile in the long run.
Record of Poor Performance
Maybe you had issues last winter with your furnace; it short-cycled, didn’t blow out warm air or heated your home unevenly. If these problems persist even though you had repairs done on it recently, the choice becomes clear. An unusually high monthly bill also signifies that something may be incurably wrong with the furnace.
