Knowing when your furnace needs replacing
“Furnaces are one of the most important pieces of equipment in your home. Having a furnace go out unexpectedly is one of the most stressful situations a homeowner can face. It’s important to keep track of how efficiently and effectively your natural gas furnace is running. Furnaces give certain telltale signs that they are failing. By keeping an eye out for the main signs, you can be prepared for a furnace repair or replacement. In addition, being prepared will allow you to do research on new high-efficiency natural gas furnaces before the time comes to replace your unit. High-efficient natural gas furnaces operate at up to 98% efficiency, far greater efficiency than older furnaces.”

This might be surprising to some homeowners but the average lifespan of a furnace is typically 15 to 20 years. It is suggested that if your furnace is older than that, it should be replaced. Even if your furnace shows no signs of problems, you might still get a nice return on investment with a newer and more efficient furnace.
