How Do I Know I Need A New Furnace

Is my furnace that old?

There are several signs that indicate you may need a new furnace, including:

  1. Age of your furnace: If your furnace is more than 15 years old, it may be time to replace it. Furnaces typically last around 15 to 20 years.

  2. Repairs: If you find yourself constantly repairing your furnace, it may be more cost-effective to replace it instead of continually fixing it.

  3. Increased energy bills: If you notice a significant increase in your energy bills, your furnace may be working harder than it used to and may need to be replaced.

  4. Strange noises: If you hear strange noises coming from your furnace, such as banging, rattling, or whistling, it may be a sign of a malfunction.

  5. Inadequate heating: If your furnace is no longer able to adequately heat your home, it may be time for a replacement.

  6. Carbon monoxide: If you suspect there may be a carbon monoxide leak from your furnace, it is important to have it checked immediately and replaced if necessary.

It’s important to note that only a qualified HVAC technician can accurately diagnose whether or not you need a new furnace, so if you’re experiencing any of the above issues, it’s a good idea to have a professional inspect your furnace.

How much does a new furnace cost?

The cost of a new furnace can vary widely depending on several factors such as the type of furnace, its size, and its efficiency rating. On average, the cost of a new furnace ranges from $2,000 to $10,000, with high-efficiency furnaces usually costing more.

For example, a mid-range, 80% AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) rated gas furnace can cost between $2,500 and $5,000 installed, while a high-efficiency model with a 90% or greater AFUE rating can cost between $3,500 and $10,000 or more installed.

It’s important to keep in mind that the actual cost of a new furnace will depend on a number of factors, including the specific make and model, the installation costs, and any additional features or accessories you may choose to add. It’s always a good idea to get multiple quotes from licensed and reputable HVAC contractors to ensure that you are getting the best value for your money.
