Signs I Need to Replace My Furnace

Most furnaces last 12 to 15 years with proper maintenance, though some high-quality systems can last over 20 years. When your furnace is nearing the end of its service life, you may notice a few signs that it is time for furnace replacement, such as:

  • Higher utility costs – Furnaces will often operate less efficiently as they age, increasing your heating costs over time.
  • Frequent breakdowns – As the individual components of your furnace age, like the blower motor, electronic igniter, and flame sensor, you will experience more frequent breakdowns and performance problems.
  • Costly failures – When parts like the blower motor fail or the heat exchanger cracks, repairs may be too costly to be feasible.
  • Performance problems – If your furnace cannot heat your home properly, it is starting to make strange noises, or it has indicators of carbon monoxide leaks, like soot stains or yellow burner flames, it may be time to consider a new system.

Today’s furnaces range from 80% to over 97% efficiency, and with features like two-stage heating, they can provide greater comfort while using less energy and reducing your heating costs. At American Vintage Home, we can help you choose a new furnace with the best performance and features for your budget.

Signs Your Boiler Needs to Be Replaced

With just basic maintenance, most boilers can last 15 to 20 years, though the effects of heat, corrosion, and pressure can often render them less reliable and efficient as they near the end of their lifespans. Here are some signs it is time for a boiler replacement:

  • Increased utility costs – An inefficient boiler will cause your heating costs to increase as the system works harder to keep your home comfortable.
  • Leaks and corrosion – Leaking pipes, corrosion, or a damaged heat exchanger are signs that your boiler is due for either costly repairs or replacement.
  • Frequent repairs – If your boiler needs constant maintenance and repairs to stay operational, it may be time for an upgrade.
  • Poor performance – If your boiler is no longer keeping up with the heating demands of your home, it is time for a new system.

At American Vintage Home, we feature modern boilers with over 90% efficiency, and we can provide a clean, professional installation that makes use of your existing radiators, in-floor heating systems, and other components in many cases.
