Frequently Asked Questions
How many years does a gas furnace last?
It’s difficult to offer a one-size-fits-all answer for this, as a gas furnace can last as few as 10 years or as many as 30 without needing replacement. Newer models are designed more efficiently and robustly, meaning they’ll last longer, but if you’re asking this question, you probably have an older model with a shorter life span and a lot of baked-in inefficiency and waste. While your 20-year-old furnace may not be completely nonfunctional yet, and it might keep ticking for years more, an old system can be wasting nearly a quarter of the energy you put into it. The service life of a gas furnace is also shaped by how much maintenance you’ve kept up with, your indoor air quality, how well you keep up with filters, and more than a little luck.
Is it cheaper to replace the furnace and AC together?
It’s almost always going to save money to upgrade multiple components at the same time instead of spreading them out. Not only do the two share an air handler in most designs, it’s less work for technicians to replace your air conditioner while they’re already in there working than to replace each on separate occasions. You can expect to save 10% or more by replacing them together in most cases, barring unusual circumstances in your home’s installation or your target upgrade. Of course, this assumes both are due for upgrades, which may not be the case if they were installed at different times.
Will a furnace work without an AC?
You can have a stand-alone furnace installed without air conditioning if you don’t need air conditioning, or you can have a separate system in place for cooling like window units, mobile AC, or ductless mini-splits. It’s easier to add an air conditioner to a home that already has a furnace than vice versa, as most systems that include a furnace and central air use the furnace’s air handler to push air through the ducts, with the air conditioner acting more like an add-on to that system.
