How Long Does a Furnace Usually Last?
On average, a furnace will last for 10-15 years before it needs to be replaced. Factors such as the type of furnace, its maintenance history, and the local climate can all affect the lifespan of a furnace.
Common Heating Repair Problems
Here is a list of common repair issues that your furnace may experience. Scheduling a routine tune-up service can help spot these problems before they become a bigger problem.
Dirty duct system
Over time, dust and debris may clog up your home's heating ducts, limiting the airflow.
Faulty starting mechanism
The pilot light or electric ignition can malfunction, stopping the furnace from turning on.
Faulty blower components
If your furnace fails to blow hot air, you may want to have a blower bearing, belt, or capacitor checked by professionals.
Bad limit switch
It tells the blower fun when to go on and off in response to indoor temperature. A faulty switch may lead to your furnace running non-stop, overheating, potential fires, or severe damage to the furnace.
A bad thermostat may fail to pick up the right room temperature, leading to your furnace running incorrectly.
Faulty heat exchanger
It is where all the warm air comes from in your home. Without proper maintenance, it can crack or develop other malfunctions.
It may be due to loose nuts and bolts or worn-out parts
What are the Signs that my Gas Furnace Needs to be Replaced?
Homeowners should track when their furnace needs to be replaced. If your furnace breaks a lot or doesn't heat your home well, you might need a new one. If your energy bills are higher without any changes in how you use energy, it could be a sign that your furnace isn't working well and might need to be replaced.
If you have any of these problems, it is a good idea to talk to a professional to see if you need a new furnace.
