If you have an older, inefficient furnace, or a furnace that needs frequent repairs, it may be time to consider an upgrade. Today’s high-efficiency natural gas furnaces are up to 96% efficient which means replacing your furnace may be more cost-effective than repairing it. An energy-efficient furnace can also save you up to 25% of your home-heating costs in one year. Not sure when the right time to replace your furnace is? Here are some simple tips that can help you determine if a repair or replacement is needed.
Too Many Repairs?
Assess how many times you have had to call to get the furnace repaired or how many times you’ve had to replace parts. If you’re spending major money in repairs every year to your furnace, you may need to evaluate if you’re spending more than you need to. Many times, it’s more cost effective to replace the system entirely, and you’d be surprised at how affordable many of the systems are, especially with rebates and incentives that are offered throughout the year. In the long run, you will save money on your energy bill with a new and efficient system.
Old Age Catching Up
Your heating and cooling system is a machine that unfortunately won’t last forever. After years of reliable use, the furnace will start to wear down, and it will likely begin to have issues that need addressing. Determine how long you’re planning on staying in your home and if you need a basic system or something a little bit better due to the size of your house or the type of weather in your area. Consider the weight of repair costs versus replacement, but remember that if the furnace is more than 15 years old, you should consider replacing it with a high-efficiency model.
