The best furnace for your home is the one that continually provides warm, comfortable air at a temperature you enjoy. When a furnace starts to fail, a decision must be made about whether to replace it completely or make repairs. Here are a few questions you can answer to make the ideal choice.

How Old Is the System?

Like any mechanical device, heating equipment will eventually wear out and need to be updated. If your equipment is more than 15 years old, it’s time to start planning for a replacement. Units that have been regularly maintained can last up to 20 years, but that’s not guaranteed. Spending money on mounting repairs doesn’t make much sense when the system is headed toward failure.

What’s the Repair Going to Cost?

In a newer heating system, replacing parts and making fixes makes a lot of sense. When the heater is delivering the quality of airflow and temperatures you want, repairing is the way to go. However, patching an older system together with multiple repairs can be a losing proposition. Paying for an expensive repair right now doesn’t put a stop to future repairs. The monthly payment for a new system has far more value than monthly repair payments for an aging one.
