You are taking a chance that someting else may be bad or nearing breakdon.

A critical part of a forced hot air furnace is the heat exchanger. If ths develops a crack then you can get carbon monoxide into the house.

Another part that can give trouble is the pilot light or electronic ignition.

Finsally if something major does break, you have the cost of installing all over again when you buy a new furnace,
