3 Reasons NOT to Buy a Used Furnace

1. There is no guarantee it will function properly

If you're shopping around for a used furnace online, you may not be getting all the information you need. Was it heavily used? Is the heat exchanger in good shape? Most importantly, is it safe? In short, there's too much risk involved with purchasing a used furnace -- it's best to save money elsewhere.

2. It will be out of warranty

This means that parts and service will not be covered should anything go wrong. A new furnace, on the other hand, likely comes with at least a 10-year parts replacement warranty. You just can't beat that!

3. Repair costs will be through the roof

This point ties into a lack of warranty. If you buy a used furnace with no warranty, whether you need parts or service, it will come straight out of your pocket. Sure, you may save money on the initial investment, but with repairs you could end up paying more than if you purchased a new furnace.
