How to Choose Between Furnace Repair or Replacement December 13, 2018

How to Choose Between Furnace Repair or Replacement , Elyria, Ohio

Furnaces can stop working when you need them the most, and there are many reasons they could malfunction. If a problem becomes obvious during your annual tuneup before winter, homeowners will have time to decide whether it’s best to repair or replace their system. A certified technician can examine your unit and offer their expert opinion, but this information can also help you decide between repairing and replacing your furnace.

Furnace Repair or Replacement: Which is Better?


The most significant factor to consider when it comes to repairing your furnace is its age. You can expect up to 20 years of service from your furnace, so if your unit is relatively new, a repair is the most likely solution. An HVAC technician can diagnose the problem and provide a cost estimate on repairs. If repair costs are more than one-third of the value of a new system, repairing it is the most economical result.


If you pay for numerous repairs to the same furnace in a relatively short time span, it’s probable that your system is damaged and should be replaced. Furnaces that have passed the 15-year mark should also be upgraded once problems begin manifesting. Newer models are energy-efficient, which can also lower your utility costs, so consider upgrading if your unit is outdated and your bills are quickly increasing.
