How Long Does a Furnace Last?

The lifespan of your furnace will depend on a couple of things. On average, a furnace that is well-maintained will last 15-20 years. It is recommended that a furnace is replaced about every 15 years.

Some things to consider when calculating the lifespan of a furnace include the following:

  • How big is your furnace?
  • How often do you get furnace maintenance?
  • What are your thermostat settings?
  • Was your furnace installed correctly?

Routine furnace maintenance can help to increase the lifespan of your furnace, and ensure that it is working at optimal levels. Another tip to enhancing the lifespan of your furnace is to replace your air filters as recommended by the manufacturer. Replacing your air filters can help to clear dirt and ensure that your furnace is performing efficiently.

Should You Wait to Replace Your Heating System?

Sooner or later, every homeowner is faced with the decision of whether or not to replace their heating system. The question is never "if", but "when" since all mechanical devices eventually wear out. Generally, a heating system will last 10 to 20 years, depending on the type (for example, a furnace may last longer than a heat pump). So, how do you know when the time is right?

Here are several factors to consider:

  • How expensive is the current repair? Although it might make sense to make small repairs to an aging system, it is never a good idea to replace major components after a system is ten years old.
  • Is the timing right? The best time to purchase a new heating system is during the spring or fall when manufacturers offer purchase incentives. Typically, avoiding purchase decisions during extreme weather will save you money.
  • Can I get by replacing one component instead of the entire system? A professional can help you with this decision, but age and compatibility are factors to consider. To get the best operating efficiency out of any system, the components must be matched.
  • How efficient should my new system be? Heating systems are rated numerically for efficiency. The higher the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating, the more efficient the system will be. Standard efficiency is around 80%, whereas high-efficiency units have 90% or more AFUE.
