How Long Does a Furnace Last?
Your furnace is a machine, and like any machine, it has a finite lifespan. Since a new furnace installation can be expensive and inconvenient, it’s wise to extend the life of your furnace as long as possible. One question many people have is, “how long will my furnace last?”. That question is difficult to answer because many factors affect the lifespan of a heater or furnace. However, the average lifespan of a furnace is 15-20 years, provided you perform regular maintenance. Some factors affecting the furnace’s life are:
- Make and model
- Frequency of maintenance
- Proper installation
- Wear and tear
At Conway Comfort Heating & Cooling, we will inspect your furnace and find ways you can extend its life for a higher value.
Whether you need to install a new furnace or repair your boiler, call us for expert, cost-effective service!
Factors Affecting Furnace Efficiency
Heating a home takes a lot of energy and costs a lot of money, which is why your furnace must run as efficiently as possible to keep your energy bill as low as possible. Here are the most common factors affecting furnace efficiency.
- Lack of Maintenance: Not having regular maintenance performed on your heater causes it to become unreliable and break down sooner than it should.
- Not Changing Filters: Dirty filters impede the airflow of your furnace, making it work harder, which shortens its lifespan and causes it to consume more energy.
- High Thermostat: The higher you set your thermostat, the more energy your furnace uses, which means higher energy bills.
- Lack of Insulation: The right amount of insulation means your furnace doesn’t have to work as hard to keep your home warm.
