You may find your furnace breaking down on you more often, which can become quite costly. When the time comes for you to replace your furnace, among several considerations, there are two you will want to remember.

Once the time has come to replace your furnace, you may feel the correct thing to do is go with one of the same size and that has the same heating capacity. However, this can be a costly decision since many furnaces are oversized to begin with. A contractor will use help you determine the correct size of new furnace for your situation.
