Choosing to Repair Vs. Replace a Furnace
There are many ways to tell if you should repair or replace a furnace. Most of the time, it has to do with the age and how much longer the unit can potentially last. However, there is a relatively simple solution for this, in the form of an equation:
Multiply: Furnace age in years by the cost of repair needed
The answer to that equation will be the number that you compare to the cost of a new unit. For example, if the furnace is 8 years old and the repair cost is $100, you will get the number 800. That number is less than the average cost of a new furnace, therefore it may be wise to make the repair. However, if you’re still unsure, speak to one of our technicians as they will give you as much information as possible, including their opinion of whether to repair or replace.
Maintenance is Key for Furnace Longevity
The key to squeezing every bit of life out of your furnace is to stay on top of minor repairs and maintenance. Although minor repairs may not seem like they can cause a furnace to break, over time, they just might. Opting to have a professional maintain your system can go a long way toward maximizing its life and minimizing major repairs. When you call ProSolutions Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning for furnace maintenance, you will notice that we go through an extensive checklist to ensure every part works just as it should.
