Knowing When to Replace Your Oil Furnace

September 26, 2022

If your old furnace is making noises, you may be wondering, “How long should an oil furnace last?” The next question is usually, “How much does it cost to replace an oil furnace?”

When to replace your oil furnace depends on a few factors, like your furnace age. The average lifespan of a furnace is 16 to 20 years.  If it’s time to start shopping, you should know who can replace an oil furnace. Licensed technicians come equipped with all of the parts, tools, and knowledge needed to safely remove your old furnace; clean the vents and ducts; and install the new furnace.

The average cost to replace an oil furnace ranges from $5,000 to $9,000, including technician labor, and it’s related to your home size.

If you want to stay toasty warm all winter, think about replacing your oil furnace before it gets colder. That’s because your furnace won’t be the only one to die on the coldest day of the year when technicians get really busy. This means wait times and prices can skyrocket, meaning you’re in the cold.
