Should have replaced furnace right away

When my wife and I first moved into our home, the furnace was already old and not in very good condition.

At that time, we couldn’t afford to replace the heating system.

We had too many other repairs that seemed more pressing. The roof leaked, all of the kitchen appliances needed to be replaced and many of the windows were broken. My wife and I set up a schedule for the various home improvements and planned to replace the furnace in three years. However, other problems took precedence and depleted our budget. The water heater rusted through and flooded the basement. My wife got in a car accident and our insurance costs went up. We also got stuck buying a new clothes dryer. We kept that outdated furnace for eight more years. Every winter, we were unhappy with the high cost of our heating bills. We complained over the house feeling chilly and the amount of dust blowing from the supply vents. The furnace was noisy, inefficient and ineffective. To save money, we set the thermostat as low as we could stand it and dressed in thick socks and heavy sweaters. I was conscientious about changing the air filter every few months and scheduling professional upkeep in the fall. Every year, the HVAC contractor who handled the maintenance would recommend replacing the furnace. He’d warn us that the heating system wouldn’t last much longer. We were convinced we couldn’t afford a new furnace. However, the heater eventually failed during a blizzard over the Christmas holidays. We had no choice but to take out a loan and install a new furnace. We were then amazed by how much lower our monthly utility bills were. Plus, the house was so much more comfortable. We should have replaced the furnace when we first moved in.
