A furnace’s efficiency is measured by a calculation of how efficiently the unit converts the energy in its fuel to heat over the course of a typical year. According to the US Department of Energy, once a furnace reaches 20 years of age, its efficiency level, which was initially quite low, has significantly degraded.
Signs that you may need to replace your furnace include:
- Age – at 16 years of age or older, it’s time to start thinking about replacing your furnace. Even though a furnace replacement can be expensive, your older, less energy-efficient furnace may cost you more in the long run.
- Frequent repairs – costly repairs can add up, and may be a sign of a bigger problem with the unit.
- High energy bills –a significant increase in your heating bill may mean that your furnace is no longer operating efficiently, especially if you have not had your system regularly maintained.
- Inconsistent temperatures – constantly adjusting your thermostat or some areas of your home are significantly warmer or cooler than others.
