Should You Replace Or Repair Your Current Heating System?
One question homeowners frequently ask is how to know if they should get a new furnace replacement or an HVAC system repair.
If this is your first experience with a troubled heating system, it is usually recommended to treat your current HVAC systems malfunctions with a repair, as that tends to be the most cost-effective option. However, in cases where your system has needed frequent repairs or exceeds its expected life span, a new furnace installation is recommended.
The Formula to Determine Replacement vs. Repair
One of our HVAC professional contractors will help determine the best solution for your home during your free estimate. A good way to determine what the likelihood is of a repair versus a replacement is to consider the “5,000 rule.”
Take the age of your broken furnace, multiply that number by the cost of the estimated repair, and if that number is greater than 5,000, it’s probably better to replace the unit entirely when considering the cost of heating bills with continued costly repairs.
Here are a couple of examples of this formula put to work:
If your heating system is 10 years old and needs $350 in work- 10 x 350 = 3500, in this instance, it is bests to repair your current unit.
If your heating system is 15 years old and needs $350 in work in work- 15 x 350 = 5250, in this instance, it’s best to invest in a new system installation and replacement.
As part of our dedication to customer service and satisfaction, will not recommend a full furnace replacement if a heat system repair is the better option for your home and budget.
