Air Right Technologies will ensure that your new furnace is installed correctly and safely to protect your household and keep the system functioning efficiently for years to come.
Repair or Replace?
There are warning signs that your furnace may be nearing its end and require a replacement. However, some issues you may be having with your system may not spell the demise of your furnace but rather that there’s something wrong that just needs to be repaired. Here are some ways to help figure out the elusive question – should I repair my furnace or just scrap it for a new system?
Safety concerns: Obviously, if your furnace is damaged or prevents a safety hazard, it should be replaced as soon as possible. At Air Right Technologies, we offer emergency services after 4:30 PM on weekdays and anytime on Saturday and Sunday.
Typical Lifespan: A 2007 study by the National Association of Home Builders and Bank of America found that furnaces for forced-air systems last an average of 15 to 20 years; boilers for hot-water radiators and baseboards last 13-21 years. Begin by dating your system, and many contractors write the installation date directly on the unit itself.
Cost of Repairing vs. Replacing: Generally, it makes sense to consider replacing your unit if the equipment is past 3 quarters of its life expectancy and the repairs will cost more than a third of the replacement. While a repair may save you a bit of money short-term, it doesn’t make as much sense when ultimately the system is beginning to reach its end anyway.
System Efficiency: Depending on the size of your unit and its match to your home, you could save energy and in turn money on your monthly bill by replacing your unit. An Air Right Technologies contractor can come to your home and determine if your system is running efficiently.
