Are You Ready to Replace Your Furnace?

Your home’s heating system is an expensive investment. Perhaps this tempts you to put off a Furnace Repair and choose to repair your outdated unit instead.

Consider these factors when deciding whether to repair or replace:

  • Age – A 10 to 15-year-old furnace is probably on its last leg and not worth repairing, especially if you have already poured money into several repairs over the past season or two.
  • Investment cost – It costs more to replace than to repair, but consider the long-term investment cost of keeping your old furnace running. The knowledgeable heater contractors at Dimare’s Heating and Cooling Services can help you calculate your return on investment.
  • Utility rates By taking utility bills from past seasons and calculating future bills based on rising utility rates, you can determine how much it will cost to run your existing furnace this year. Compare that with the energy consumed by a new furnace at the same utility rates and see what savings you can expect from a Furnace Repair.

Different Types of Furnaces & Heating Systems

Furnaces are one of the most popular heating systems today:

  • Gas furnaces have low operational costs and are therefore the most common.
  • Electric furnaces are a good alternative where natural gas is not available.
  • Oil furnaces are another choice if natural gas isn’t an option.

Other types of heating systems include:

  • Heat pumps, which work like ACs during the summer and ACs in reverse during the winter.
  • Boilers, which heat water for radiant heating systems.

What to Consider when Choosing a Furnace Repair

There are a couple of things you need to think about when choosing a Furnace Repair:

  • Geographic location – If you rely more on heating than air conditioning because you live in a cold geographic location, it’s worthwhile to invest in a high-efficiency Furnace Repair. Paying the extra upfront cost might not make economic sense for warm-climate residents, though.
  • Existing system – It’s important to consider existing systems in your home, as well as your future plans. For example, if you’re interested in adding air conditioning, a heat pump might be a better choice than a furnace, depending on your climate. If your home doesn’t have ductwork, a boiler could prove to be the more economical.
