In our last post we talked about various signs that it may be time to replace a furnace, but for this post, we wanted to talk about the benefits of furnace repair.
Below are the top three reasons you should repair (and not replace) your furnace.
It’s still relatively new
This may sound like a no-brainer, but if your furnace is newer than it is not, there’s no reason to jump right into furnace replacement. If it’s only a few years old and it’s starting to act up, you’ll want to speak with a reputable furnace repairman to determine the root of the problem.
In some cases, the remedy might be simple.
Are you having your system serviced on an annual basis? Most homeowners are surprised to learn that, much like they need to have regular service performed on their car, they should have their furnace tuned up every fall. This holds true regardless as to whether you have a gas furnace or an electric furnace. During the appointment the technician will lubricate parts that need to be lubricated, they’ll swap out the air filter and they’ll check to make sure that everything is in working order. If they determine that a part should be replaced because it looks as if it’s on the verge of failure, they’ll let you know so the work can be done promptly.
Furnace repair is cheaper than furnace replacement
If your system is older and you’re wondering if you should buy something new, you may want to have that discussion with your HVAC service provider. If the technician feels you can get a few years more out of what you currently have installed, there’s no reason to make the purchase today. Remember- replacing your furnace will cost a lot more than repairing it, and there’s no need to take on that expense sooner than you have to.
The problem is fixable
If your HVAC service provider has told you there’s no remedy to the problem you’re having, you’ll need to start thinking about replacement. But, if they feel the issue can be remedied with ease, you’d be silly to choose to buy a new furnace as opposed to repairing what you currently have in your home.
