Was this Winter your Furnace’s Last?

Buying a water heater for your home is an expensive purchase. At Red Line Heating and Cooling, we understand you want to extend the life of your furnace for as long as possible, but at some point it will need to be replaced. It can be tricky to determine when your furnace needs to be replaced, but there are a few things to consider.

So, what dо уоu lооk for when deciding when to replace your furnace? To аnѕwеr thіѕ quеѕtіоn, we must investigate four factors: age, home heating needs, maintenance habits, and home insulation.


Most furnaces last between 15 to 20 years. If your furnace is younger than 15 and experiencing problems, it is wise to speak to a technician at Red Line Heating and Cooling. Our team of professionals can resolve nearly any HVAC problem. Younger furnaces are often insured, or under a manufacture warranty. For this reason, we recommend consulting with your furnace’s manufacturer before contacting us. There is a high likelihood your furnace replacement or repairs will be free.

However, if your furnace is 15 years or older, and it’s experiencing continuous difficulties, it may be time to invest in a new furnace. Replacing an old furnace can often be cheaper than continually paying for repairs, especially if you are only extending your furnace’s life by a couple of years.

Home Heating Needs

The amount of heat you demand from your furnace will impact its life expectancy. If you rely heavily on your heating system it will wear out faster. Individuals who are are more conservative with their heating needs can expect their system to last slightly longer. One way to extend the life of your furnace, and reduce your energy bill, is by investing in insulation.

Home Insulation

Well insulated homes can expect to have lower energy bills and a furnace that lasts. Insulation allows your home to conserve heat and cool air naturally. Ask Red Line Heating and Cooling

about your home’s insulation options. Insulating your home is virtually always less expensive than a new furnace and it saves energy. Home insulation is a viable solution for people who want their furnace’s life to last, reduce their utility bill, and help the planet.

Maintenance Habits

Your HVAC maintenance habits will greatly impact the amount of energy you use each month, and overall, the lifespan of your furnace. Regularly changing your furnace’s filters and investing in an annual maintenance evaluation with Red Line Heating and Cooling, has the potential of adding years to your furnace’s life. For best results, we recommend careful care from the beginning. It easier and less expensive to prevent damage than it is to repair it
