Knowing when to repair your heater or when it’s time to replace may save you money in the long run. Though we never really want to purchase an entirely new system if the old one is still functioning, there may be a time when the old one is costing you hundreds of unnecessary dollars in heater repair services and lack of efficiency. Here are some helpful tips for when you can stick with it or when you should consider replacing:
- Furnace Unit is Older than 15 Years -If your unit is this old and experiencing problems, you are probably throwing money into something that has already worked through its peak performing years. An old unit does not perform as energy-efficiently as newer models, and it is recommended that you look into heater replacement options.
- Heat Pump is Older than 10 Years – Heat pumps older than ten years do not focus on energy-efficiency technologies that could save you up to 20% on heating and cooling costs. Don’t throw money into a low-efficiency product.
- Frequent Repairs to Your Unit – You may choose heater repair services for a while, but if your unit breaks down consistently it is just not the right one for you. This may be for several reasons, and a heating contractor will help you decide if more repairs are likely in the near future.
There are many other situations that may arise with your heating unit. If you are tired of paying for heater repair services, it is time to call a heating contractor to see if your best option is to purchase a new one. It is also important to remember that there have been many advances in energy-efficient products. By purchasing a new unit, you could be saving money every month.
