The cold weather in Central Point means it’s time to schedule your annual furnace service. If your furnace is getting past its prime, it might be time to consider a furnace replacement.
Just like any other home improvement project, a new furnace is a considerable investment in your home. The pros at Titan Heating & Air Conditioning can help you figure out if it’s time for a furnace replacement or regular furnace service. We have some tips for you to ponder while deciding the future of your furnace.
1. Age of System
This will most likely be the most telling factor in deciding if it’s time for a repair or replacement. There have been great strides in furnace technology over the years, including an increase in efficiency and a decrease in noise. If your furnace has reached maturity, it may be time to start looking for a new system. The experts at Titan Heating & Air Conditioning can work with you to determine if it’s the appropriate time for a replacement.
2. Cost Comparison
Purchasing a new furnace is an expenditure a homeowner doesn’t want to make until needed. That’s why analyzing the price tag of continually repairing your furnace against the cost of a replacement is an important part of the decision-making process. When you start comparing the two we have a few things to keep in mind.
- Make note of when your warranty expires and note what it covers so you’re always saving whenever possible.
- When considering what size your new furnace needs to be it’s wise to call in the professionals. A technician will determine a load calculation related to your home size and various other factors such as home design, insulation and the typical routine of people living inside the home.
- The energy efficiency level of the system will factor into the cost of a replacement.
- Furnaces with higher AFUE ratings will lead to more energy savings down the road.
After you’ve calculated the costs to continually repair your system or to replace it, there’s an uncomplicated rule to use as a guide. If your repair cost is 1/3 the cost of a replacement or if your furnace is getting up there in age, the best option may be a replacement.
