Time to Replace Your Furnace
What are the warning signs? Well, you may find your furnace cycles more often than it used to, maybe it sounds louder, or perhaps your energy bills have climbed higher. It’s normal to replace your furnace every 15 years or so. By this age, the cost of a repair is often not worth it, when you consider what you’ll pay for future repairs and utility costs.
Signs it’s time for a new furnace
When your furnace starts to break down, it will probably start to act up, indicating that it’s time for a replacement. Look out for the following signs:
Heat exchanger is cracked
Furnace is noisy
Furnace breaks frequently
Furnace is aging (older than 15 years)

An HVAC specialist will assess your hom — the size of your house, the ductwork, and your current system — to find out what options are best for you.
Review the furnace estimate with the specialist
You’ll be quoted based on the type and size of the furnace. You have options, so don’t be afraid to ask questions!
Install your furnace
An HVAC technician will come to your house to install your new furnace. This typically takes upwards of eight hours, over the course of one to three days, depending on the service provider, their schedule, and how elaborate the job is.
