Should I Repair or Replace My Furnace?

 It is not always completely obvious when you need to replace your furnace. The signs may be subtle and easy to ignore. This is a question that our technicians at Western Heating and Air Conditioning get all the time, particularly when it gets so cold at night. There are a few key factors that play into replacing a furnace. If your system meets any of the characteristics below, it may be time to replace it.

Repair or Replace

 Your Furnace Is Old

If your furnace is older than 15-20 years old, it likely needs to be replaced. If you have not maintained it properly, then its lifespan may be a bit shorter. Newer models of furnaces are much more energy-efficient. Choosing a newer model will save you monthly on utility bills.

 Increased Repairs

If you find that your furnace needs frequent repairs just to have it work properly, it may be time to call it quits. If your repairs are getting expensive, it may be worth it to just put that money towards a new unit. A general rule of thumb is, if the cost of repair is 50% of the cost of a new furnace, you should just replace it instead of repair it.

 Increased Energy Bills

If you have noticed that each year your heating bills have gone up without more usage (taking into account your rate) then you may need to replace your unit. As stated above, a newer unit will be much more energy-efficient and will help you save on a monthly basis.

 Replacing your heating equipment is an important decision and an investment that can save you money in the long run. As a company you can trust, Western Heating & Air Conditioning has many cost-effective options that will align with your family’s budget and needs.

If you need replacement, you can always count on Western Heating and Air Conditioning for installation and maintenance. Call us at (385) 273-3200 or visit westernheatingair.com for more info!

Easton Frisby Did a fantastic job on maintenance and repair of our furnace. He answered many of my questions that were very complicated and couldn’t be answered by previous HVAC technicians from other companies. I hate paying money for things like air conditioner and heating maintenance, but they did such a good job that I signed up for a maintenance plan.

Taylor was awesome and able to return in a timely matter with part needed. Jeff was able to quickly diagnose what was going on with my system! Kayla was very helpful along with Rachel in office getting my rental unit scheduled very fast compared to other companies.

The technician, Brennan, was exceptional! During our follow up call he explained everything about the unit and its performance in detail, the adjustments made to improve functionality, and recommended an item I will have have done this coming year. Can’t say enough good things about Western Heating & Air!
