How do you know if it’s time to get a new furnace? How do you know if replacement is needed and not just a repair? There are many different personal and professional elements that help decide this, but Crome Mechanical has a few rules of thumb in establishing if the time has come to move on from your old furnace.

Furnace age: the average life of a furnace lasts between 12-17 years. After 15 years, furnaces have an increased risk of failing so if your furnace is moving toward that age, it might be time to start exploring some new furnaces with Crome Mechanical. High energy bills: furnaces may not work efficiently as they get more work out of them, and if they aren’t checked out regularly, they may also lose productivity.
Spotty heating: systems must be shut properly to evade leaks and ensure they are consistent in heating your home. If your ductwork isn’t sealed correctly or the furnace is beyond repair, a new furnace with new ductwork will surely keep your home comfortable. Indoor air quality: older ductwork can be stuffed with dust, mold, or mildew after years of use. If you observe that the quality of your indoor air is deficient or that members of your family are dealing with allergens, furnace replacement might be necessary.

Don’t let the thought of furnace replacement scare you – new furnaces extend a variety of wonderful perks to any home and the experts at Crome Mechanical know all the tips and tricks for proficient and professional installation. New furnaces offer:


  • Quieter operation: get rid of the roars and banging from your old furnace – new furnaces have the latest and greatest in technology and provide quieter work, so much so that you may not even hear it switch on!
  • Better furnace efficiency: newer furnaces can live between 20-25 years, as opposed to around 15 years for older furnaces. Thanks to improvements in technology they run more efficiently and reliably.
  • Dependable operation: newer furnaces will need less and less repairs, especially in their younger age.
