    I recently came across a problem where the blower for my furnace stopped working it now causes a bigger problem where i cannot use my AC as they run together. I had different companies offer me replacement which was for a reasonalble price and as for the fixing my old one nobody can guarantee that it will be fixed and last me for a while, which concerns me. I dont want to be spending money on serviing it if it will not last me. Any ideas whether its best to just service it or to buy a new one? Any advice would be appreciated

    I say go for an upgrade if it started causing you problems now then they will keep on adding with time and you’ll end up paying for service calls all the time

    If your furnace it 10 years just go for it, what is there to think about? Dont waste your money on fixing it as it will cause you more problems down the road as it is as that time of the lifespan. They manufacture them in a way where it starts causing you problems after 10 years so you buy a new one.

    I just got 95% high efficiency furnace installed in my house recently and it makes a big difference already. First of all it is much quiter and eventhough it is not winter yeat i already saw the savings on my energy bills. Plus there is a 10 years warranly on parts and labour, so i agree they are manufactured to last you 10 years and then start causing problems, so get it done and dont waste your time and money fixing it. If you dont have the finances available tp purchase it, check out different financing options that are available

    If your furnace is 10 years old and already causes you probllems get a new one and you will save money not only on repairs but also gas bills

    You are even asking of course it is wrth to buy a new one after 10 years especially if there are problems with your olf furnace. I even suggest renting a furnace that way you are fully covered and do not need to be responsible for any repairs, gives a piece of mind

    The best case scenario is for you to get a new furnace as the blower replacement ca cost up to $1000 and to get a new furnace can be as low as $2000 in addition you can get extended warranty on parts and labor, feel free to contact us for more details
