Furnace Repair vs. Replacement

The winter season is the time of year when furnace problems and complications may become an issue in your household, so, is it better to choose furnace repair or replacement?

Most people are able to withstand the Canadian winter by having the comfort of  a working furnace in their home, but if that isn’t the case then you’re most likely in need of a furnace repair or replacement. But which one do you choose? There are a variety of factors in determining which choice is best for your home. When making this decision you need to ensure that the choice you’re making is the right one for your current HVAC system and is the best long-term solution.

When Furnace Repair is the Right Choice

The majority of furnace problems can be solved by a trained and licensed HVAC technician. If your home’s furnace is less than 10 years old then it is very likely that your problem can be solved through a furnace repair. Another good indicator of a furnace that still has many years of operating life ahead is if it is still heating your home efficiently, which can be determined by an HVAC technician. If there is no consistent increase in your heating bills and no issues regarding uneven heating, then your furnace unit is operating correctly. If your furnace unit is relatively new and a repair will cost less than one-third of a new system, then a furnace repair should be the right call to make. If you’re experiencing a drop in your furnace unit’s efficiency you can talk to an HVAC technician about the possibility of a new thermostat or improvement of your home’s ductwork being a solution to the problem.

When Furnace Replacement is the Right Choice

Your home’s furnace, just like most things out there, is not indestructible and will deteriorate and fail as it reaches the end of its useful life. The expected lifetime of a furnace is 15-20 years, so, if your system is approaching or past the 15 year mark, then a furnace replacement may be necessary. If your furnace is less than 15 years old, but is still needing constant repairs to keep it running then that is another clear sign that a replacement should be the right choice. Repairs cost money and although the costs for a repair is less than that of a new furnace system, repair costs add up once they become recurrent and can quickly sum up to be more than a new furnace system would cost you in the first place. A furnace replacement can be necessary when it was improperly installed or if your current furnace unit is undersized for your home and does not provide you with enough heat. In this case, switching out your current undersized unit to a brand new higher capacity unit would provide your home with the amount of heat you need.
