At Air Blue Heating and Cooling Inc., we’re often asked, “when is the right time to replace my heating system?” Unfortunately, there is no exact formula. The lifespan of HVAC equipment depends on many factors. Living in Chicagoland and the surrounding suburbs, the furnace, boiler, hybrid heater and every type of system carries a big workload, creating wear and tear and impacting performance. Regular professional maintenance helps to combat deterioration, maximize efficiency and extend reliable operation.
Reasons to Upgrade your Heating System
A reason to upgrade your heating system is frequent malfunctions. Even if the issues are minor, the cost of service adds up and goes a long way toward covering the investment into a new system. Any repair with a higher price tag than the expense of a new furnace is probably not worth it. Keep in mind that modern heating systems offer higher efficiency ratings, reducing your monthly energy bills.
How Long Do Furnaces Last?
The average lifespan of a furnace is typically between 15 and 20 years. The quality of installation protocols, maintenance procedures and repairs influence longevity.
