If your furnace is giving you trouble, you might wonder if you should repair it or replace it. Here are a few questions that can help you decide.
How long will the repairs last?
When you call a repair company, they will make repair recommendations to you. Ask them how long the repairs will last. It is something that will hold up for several years or longer or will you have to repair it again in a few months? If the repairs keep popping up, it’s time to replace.
How old is the furnace?
If your furnace is newer, you can likely repair it and move on with your comfortable heat. If the furnace has been around for a decade or longer, the repairs might be more extensive and more expensive. Older furnaces cost more to repair and break down more often and sometimes need to simply be replaced.
Is the furnace safe?
If the furnace is showing any dangerous signs that can put you and your family at risk, you should replace it right away simply to stay safe. Nothing is worth the risk of your home or safety.
How much will repairs cost?
If the heating repair service offers repairs, look at the price tag of those repairs and add them to past repairs you paid for on the furnace. If those repairs are starting to add up, it will be more cost-effective to replace the furnace.
