Should I Repair or Replace My Furnace?

When the furnace starts showing signs of trouble, a common question arises: should it be repaired or replaced? This decision is critical as it can significantly impact your home’s comfort, energy consumption, and even your carbon footprint. In this blog, Countryside Plumbing and Heating, Inc. will explore the factors to consider to determine which solution makes more sense.

When to Consider Furnace Repair

There are several situations where a repair might be the most effective solution. If your furnace is relatively new — within the first half of its expected lifespan — it’s likely that a repair could resolve the issue.

Minor or isolated problems are often more cost-effective to fix than to justify a full replacement. Also, if your furnace is still under warranty, a repair is usually the best course of action. The warranty can cover some or all of the repair costs, making this a financially advantageous choice.

Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Furnace

Frequent repairs tend to be more costly, and are a sign that your furnace may be nearing the end of its useful life. A significant increase in energy bills can suggest that your heating equipment’s efficiency has declined, making replacement a more sensible option.

Replacing your furnace with a more efficient model may be the wiser choice. One factor to consider is if your furnace is near or has exceeded its expected lifespan, typically around 15-20 years which is also common in other HVAC systems like the air conditioner.
