Winter is on a roll and it can get a bit challenging for your furnace to stay put and continue delivering its service effectively and efficiently regardless of how extreme the winter gets.

However, the fall in the temperature and the extreme cold can take a toll on your furnace which can lead to the breaking down of your furnace. 

And when it happens you might be asking yourself so many questions about what to do next and resolve the situation as early as you can and in the best way possible.

You may consider repairing your Furnace since you are aware of the high cost of getting a new unit.

So for you to take the right decision, you must know some important things about your furnace and most importantly you must know how often you should replace your furnace. 

Most modern furnaces are expected to run for 18-20 years however furnaces consist of parts and components which may wear out sooner given the fact of the nature of furnaces since they are heating appliances and thus components often undergo extreme conditions.
