Time to Replace Your Furnace? Call Our Trusted Cranford-Based Team!
At some point, you will need to find a professional for furnace replacement. The better care you take of your furnace along the way, the longer the lifespan you will get out of it. However, even with the best of care, all furnaces eventually need to be replaced. On average, an oil furnace lasts approximately 10 years while a gas furnace will last up to 20 years.

When to Replace a Furnace
When we can repair a furnace, we will, unless otherwise requested by our customers. However, there are some instances when it makes more sense to replace your furnace instead.
It Might Be Time to Install a New Furnace If:
- The cost of repairs would be 50% or more than the current value of your furnace
- Your furnace will continue to need repairs in the near future
- The temperature throughout the home varies dramatically from room to room
- Your utility bills have increased significantly, indicating a loss of energy-efficiency
- There is rust, corrosion, or other visible damage to the furnace
- The overall comfort and indoor air quality has decreased considerably, including changes in your home’s humidity level
- The system won’t turn on at all
One thing that you can be certain of: Chapman Bros. Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning will only give you the honest answers you need.
How to Choose a Furnace
There are several things you will need to take into consideration when investing in a new furnace, such as the type of system you want, whether it be gas, electric, or oil, the make, model, and level of efficiency, amongst a host of other factors. However, one of the biggest items you will need to determine is what size furnace you will need. Choosing a furnace that is either too large or too small for your property will result in energy loss, unnecessary breakdowns, and in some cases the need for an early replacement.
Dangers of an Incorrectly Sized Furnace:
- An oversized furnace will often result in short cycling, where the unit runs in short, quick bursts, as less time is needed to heat the home. While this may sound beneficial, it actually causes more wear on the furnace and can shorten its lifespan.
- An undersized furnace will often need to cycle frequently to meet your heating needs. This overworking of the system will cause damage, leading to more repairs being needed, as well as a drop in efficiency and comfort.
To avoid this problem, we recommend consulting with one of our heating experts who can help you determine what size furnace is needed for your property. We will walk you through the installation process, answering any questions you may have, to ensure the furnace you choose is right for you.
