How Long Do Furnaces Last?

On average, furnaces last between 15 and 20 years. Most manufacturer’s warranties will cover your furnace for 10 years. After that warranty runs out, you may start experiencing more furnace issues and more expensive repairs. Needing a furnace repair once a season is a fairly common occurrence.

You can avoid calling for emergency repairs by taking proper care of your furnace by investing in preventative maintenance services. Annual tune-ups are when a qualified HVAC technician inspects your furnace looking out for signs of wear and tear. They can replace parts before they break which can help prevent the need for repairs during the winter. Maintenance can also help your heating system last longer and improve indoor air quality throughout your home.

Should I Replace My Furnace?

A malfunctioning furnace might worry you that your system needs to be replaced. More often than not, you just need a quick repair. Something as simple as changing your furnace’s air filter can solve many of the problems furnaces experience. When you talk to your furnace technician from Nardco, they will give you an honest assessment of the state of your furnace and when you should start considering replacing it. Most likely you do not need to replace your furnace unless any of the following is true:

  • Your furnace is over 15 years old
  • Your furnace has needed frequent repairs a season
  • Your furnace is leaking carbon monoxide and is no longer safe to operate
  • Your furnace is too big or too small for your home
  • Your furnace needs an expensive repair and the repair will cost about the same as a new unit

What are the Most Common Reasons Furnaces Need Repair?

The most obvious sign that you need furnace repairs is that you have no heat. However, there are many other times when you can count on Nardco for furnace repairs. We can fix all of these common problems. Even if your specific problem isn’t on this list, give us a call anyway.

Energy Bills Keep Getting Higher and Higher

Did you notice that your heating bills were higher last winter than they were the year before? On your heating bill, there should be an energy usage report. It might even compare your usage to the year before. If it seems like your usage keeps increasing without wildly different weather changes from the year before, then it’s probably something wrong with your furnace.

Odd Odors or Noises

When an HVAC system is operating properly, you will not notice any strange odors or odd noises. Of course, you will hear when the system powers on or off, but, in general, you shouldn’t hear any strange noises – no banging, clanging, whirring, or grinding. Odd smells should also be a cause for alarm. Odors can cause sickness as well as embarrassment. Turn off your unit right away if you’re experiencing noises or odors and call Nardco for repairs.

Hot and Cold Spots Throughout Your Home

Dirty air filters, improperly sealed ductwork, or ducting of the wrong size can all contribute to weak airflow into a given area in your home. Changing your air filters might help, but if you can feel temperature changes as you walk throughout your house, and you have an older furnace, it’s a good idea to talk to one of our professional technicians to assess your ventilation system and give you clear, feasible choices for getting it taken care of.

Pilot Light Won’t Stay Lit

While it’s common for a pilot light to get blown out by a draft of wind, here and there, it shouldn’t generally happen. Many furnaces have an automatic ignition system, but if you find that you need to manually relight your pilot light then talk to Nardco to see why your system isn’t igniting on its own.
