Should You Repair or Replace your Furnace or Heating System?

Before you decide to repair or replace your furnace think about :

The age of your furnace

A typical furnace or heating system will usually last about 15 years. If your system is older than 15 years and needs repaired it may be time to replace it rather than fight a losing battle.

The cost of a furnace repair

If you will need to spend more than $300-750 dollars to repair the system you will likely be better off replacing it. Any savings of repairing versus replacement will likely be wiped out after just a year or two of heating cost savings from a more efficient furnace.

Whether you plan to stay in the home

If you plan to stay in the home for several years check on the potential heating bill savings with a more efficient furnace. With fuel prices going up that new system may pay for itself in a relatively short time. If your current furnace is more than 10 years old chances are it’s efficiency is not much better than half what a new furnace can offer.
