Should I Repair or Replace My Furnace?
We can also offer our professional advice on whether your heater is better off undergoing a repair or being replaced.
For furnaces over 15 years old, the decision to update to a newer, modern furnace will likely prove more cost-effective long-term.
That said, the choice to go forward with a replacement or a repair is ultimately up to you. Our primary concern is to ensure you are not left shivering in your household.
Common Causes of a Malfunctioning Heater
A heater repair specialist should always be contacted if your heater is malfunctioning as proper diagnosis and repair can help protect against safety issues. There are several common causes of heater malfunctions that you could possibly identify yourself such as clogged air filters or dirty burners. Clogged air filters restrict airflow into the heater and make it difficult for a unit to maintain its temperature, while dirty burners can cause a heater to overheat. As well, problems with the thermostat may cause the heater not to turn on at all, or result in the heater turning itself off and on too frequently.
If a heater is left uncared for, it can also have issues due to improper maintenance such as improperly-lubricated moving parts or inadequate cleaning leading to dust build-up. With regular maintenance and quick action when an issue arises, you can ensure that your heater works optimally throughout the entire heating season.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long are furnaces supposed to last?
The average lifespan of a furnace is 15 to 20 years. Having annual furnace tune-ups could help extend the life of your furnace.
How often should I replace my air filter?
We recommend replacing your air filter every 90 days. If you have pets or live in a dusty, dry climate, you may need to replace your air filter every 60 days.
Air filters help protect dust and other debris from damaging your HVAC system. If air filters aren't regularly changed, dust can jam the fan motors and other parts in your furnace. Additionally, dirty air filters can restrict airflow into your furnace which can strain your system.
If you want to help prolong the lifespan of your furnace, we recommend changing your air filters.
How do I know when it's time to replace my furnace?
Some of the signs you may need a new furnace include:
- Your Furnace's Age. If your furnace is over 15–20 years old, a new furnace will likely be a cost-effective option.
- Higher Energy Bills. If your gas or electricity bills suddenly increase, your furnace may not be performing as efficiently.
- Uneven Heating in Your Home. Are some rooms warmer than others while your furnace is on? This is another sign that you may need a new furnace.
- Noticeable Wear and Tear Around Your Furnace. If you see cracks or rust developing around your actual furnace, it might be time for a new furnace.
Contact us to schedule a service if you're experiencing any of these signs. We'll thoroughly inspect your furnace and help you decide whether repairs or replacement is the best option.
