We’re going to let homeowners in on a little industry secret. Furnaces don’t last forever. In fact, furnaces don’t last much past 10 to 15 years, and if they do, they’re likely siphoning money directly from their owner’s wallet. These systems drastically lose efficiency after that time period, and repairs become more expensive as parts become harder and harder to find. It’s just not economically feasible to have a furnace beyond that point.
Sure, if homeowners want to pay our team for furnace repairs in Yonkers, NY made on a system that’s 20 years old, we can try our best—but we’d highly advise against it. Sometimes, repairs just won’t be as long-term oriented as a replacement job.
Let’s discuss five major ways that homeowners can tell their furnace is about to retire from old age. Once anyone is convinced their furnace is about to go, we can take the next steps to upgrade to a system that will last well into the future.
