Maintaining a comfortable indoor atmosphere is one of the key responsibilities of a furnace within a residential structure. A furnace can also play a role in the indoor air quality of the space. Although a furnace can last for 10+ years, this piece of heating equipment won’t last forever. When you own or manage a property, it’s helpful to keep an eye on the age of the furnace so you can plan ahead for when it will need to be replaced. Keeping up with annual furnace maintenance can extend the lifespan of the unit, but even a well-maintained furnace will need to be replaced at some point.
A furnace may also require replacement if it becomes damaged beyond repair. When you’re dealing with furnace troubles at your Hickory, North Carolina home, contact us at Lonon Heating, A/C and Air Quality. We have experienced, trained, and certified technicians who can assess the condition of the unit and determine whether you need furnace replacement or repair.

Although the cost of furnace replacement can be unexpected, you’re making an investment into the efficiency and comfort of your living space.

FAQs About Furnace Replacement
Although furnaces are designed to last for many years, they do eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Our team at Lonon Heating, A/C and Air Quality understands that you probably have questions about this prospect, so we have assembled some of our most frequently asked questions below.
How can I tell if my furnace is nearing the end of its life?
Most furnaces have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years, so if your unit is nearing that age, then it’s time to start thinking about replacement. In addition, if you have had to deal with frequent malfunctions or repairs—as in, more than one within a year–then you should think about cutting your losses and getting a new unit.
What should I do to prepare for my furnace replacement?
Prior to your scheduled furnace replacement, our team asks that you clear the path to your furnace so that we can get in and out easily. We also request that you clear the area around the furnace, removing anything that you store in that area, so that we have ample room to work.
