Every winter, we get a lot of questions from customers at Air Repair Pros about their old furnaces. They want to know if their old furnace is still reliable!
We understand the concern—after all, who wants to invest in a new furnace only to find out they “don’t make them like they used to”? But there are several advantages to new furnaces, their use of recent technologies, and the fact that they can last for up to 15 years or more.
The truth about new furnaces
New furnaces are much more efficient than their older counterparts, allowing them to reduce heating bills by an average of 20-30%. They also use new technologies like variable speed blowers and two-stage burners—which provide greater temperature control, better air quality, and more consistent heating. As a result, they are quieter and require less maintenance than their older counterparts.
The truth about old furnaces
The reliability of any furnace depends on how well it’s been maintained over the years. This isn’t an issue of old vs. new furnaces but rather good maintenance vs. poor maintenance. If your existing furnace has been serviced regularly and kept in good condition, it can still provide excellent service even after many years of use.
New furnace = new technology
Again, there are some advantages to getting a new furnace instead of relying on an older model. One of these is that new technology can help you save money on energy bills by improving efficiency. Your monthly heating costs could be lower if you upgrade to a newer model with better insulation (less heat loss) and advanced features like variable-speed blowers or two-stage burners.
The real benefit of a newer model
But the real benefit of a newer model is peace of mind. A brand-new furnace installed by our experienced technicians comes with warranties that protect your investment in case anything goes wrong. And because newer models are designed with improved safety features, you won’t have to worry about potential health hazards caused by carbon monoxide leaks or other issues common with older systems.
