Should I Repair or Replace my Furnace?

At 1st Choice Service Group Heating & Air, we have over a decade of experience working with heating systems in the Asheville area. While letting us perform regular maintenance on your furnace can extend its life, you will eventually have to replace it. Like any working piece of machinery, it will wear down over time. So when does the occasional repair of a furnace turn into the need to replace it?

Anticipated Repairs

A furnace has several systems that work together to produce heat for your home. There may be pumps that bring fuel to your system. There is a burner that creates heat. Depending on your system, there will be fans or a circulating pump that distribute the heat around your home. All of these parts are subject to wear and tear over time. After a few seasons, you may find that the technician needs to do a few minor repairs at your annual maintenance appointment. These kinds of repairs should be expected as your system ages.

Reasons to Consider a Furnace Replacement

As the system gets older, you will eventually want to consider a full replacement as opposed to repairs. You will start dealing with repairs that you do not anticipate. When you have to make several emergency repair calls in a single season, it is frustrating and inconvenient. Aging systems also lose efficiency. You will find that your fuel costs start to increase every year. Once the system is over ten years old, it is time to consider a full replacement.

Benefits of a Furnace Replacement

The experts at 1st Choice Service Group Heating & Air can tell you the benefits of replacing an older furnace. Heating technology improves each season. Your new furnace will be more efficient and more powerful than your current unit. Importantly, a new furnace gives you peace of mind knowing that the equipment is ready for several worry-free seasons of home heating.
