When It’s Time to Replace Your System

If your car repeatedly breaks down and needs to go to the repair shop, you start to wonder if it’s time for a new carburetor. The same goes for your furnace. If your system needs frequent repairs, it’s time to invest in a new one. Additionally, if your furnace is more than 10 years old, it’s probably operating inefficiently. This means you could be wasting a lot of money to heat your home and a new system may be a good investment.

Maintenance tune-ups are the best protection against repair work. In fact, all furnace manufacturers recommend annual maintenance checkups, and many even require them in order to keep your warranty intact. When you have your system inspected and serviced on a regular basis, you:

  • Ensure that your system will operate at peak performance
  • Save money on energy bills
  • Extend the life of your heater
  • Prevent expensive repair work

FAQs About Furnace Repair

Do you have a question about furnace repair in your Chicago North Shore home? Check out these common questions and answers.

How can I avoid costly furnace repair?

The best protection against furnace repair is proper maintenance. Keeping your unit well maintained will prevent unnecessary breakdowns. Also, calling at the first sign of a broken furnace can help you avoid more costly repairs by allowing an HVAC tech to repair the problem while it is minor.

How important is my furnace filter?

The furnace filter traps contaminants as they move through your home. Over time it can get full of grit and grime, and this can hinder airflow in your home. Changing your furnace filter every three months can help you avoid efficiency problems from clogged air filters.

Should I repair or replace my furnace?

The age of your furnace and the cost or type of repair will determine if repairing it or replacing it makes the most sense. If your furnace is 10 to 15 years old and has a high-cost repair, or if it’s not running efficiently, you will be better served by replacing it. An HVAC technician can help you make this determination.

What is the life span of a furnace?

With proper maintenance, a furnace should last 15 to 20 years.

How can I tell if it’s time to replace my furnace?

The age of your system, your energy bills, and the cost of repairs are all indicators that it may be time to replace your furnace. Typically speaking, if the repair costs 50% or more of the cost to replace the furnace, you will be better served in the long run with replacement.
