FURNACE REPAIR Vs REPLACEMENT
The decision between repairing and replacing your furnace and heating system can be a challenging one. Normally it comes down to three key factors – age of the equipment, cost of repairs, or replacement expenses. Whether you live in Burlington, or St. Catharines, eventually there will come a time when you will have to ask the same question that is asked about other home appliances, vehicles, and so on. Should I repair my furnace or replace it? Here are some considerations where that is concerned :
- First and foremost, think about the safety of your family and home – if the operation of your furnace has become potentially hazardous, then the only option is replacement of your existing equipment. For instance, if the heat exchanger is cracked, there is a much greater risk of a carbon monoxide leak.
- Second, the average lifespan of a furnace in forced-air heating systems ranges between 15 and 20 years – if yours is approaching that age range, you should start researching the replacement options that are available.
- Consider operational efficiency – have you noticed that your monthly utility bills are getting increasingly more costly with each month. This could be attributed to defective components or it could be that you have an older system that is just tired and ready to fail. In either case, your best option is to call BriskAir Furnace and Air Conditioning.
- Finally, compare the cost of repairing your furnace to the cost of replacing it – the general rule of thumb when trying to decide between repair and replacement is this: think about replacing your furnace if the cost of repairs exceeds 1/3 of the replacement costs and it has exceeded 75% of its lifespan.
Hopefully, these tips will prove helpful in the decision-making process if you’re debating about furnace repair versus replacement.
