The biggest benefit of new furnace installation is that most systems are much more energy efficient than models that are even just 5-10 years old. While a furnace should last 12-15 years, older models did not have as strict standards (set by the Department of Energy) for fuel efficiency. Furnace fuel efficiency is measured in AFUE, or annual fuel utilization efficiency, written as a percentage. Since 2013, the minimum AFUE rating for gas furnaces in the state of Pennsylvania is 90%.

The average life expectancy of a gas furnace is 15-30 years, depending on how much it’s used and how frequently it gets professional service. If your system is nearing 15-20 years of age and isn’t performing well, you might want to consider gas furnace replacement.
A home of 2,000 square feet would need approximately 50,000 to 60,000 Btu to heat it properly, but the amount of heat needed also depends on how many rooms there are, the layout of the home, the number of stories, and the orientation of windows in the home.
