Should I Repair or Replace My Furnace?
We’re frequently asked to help our customers decide between repairing or replacing a furnace. At Lakeside, we usually suggest installing a new furnace when:
- Your furnace is close to or older than its average life span. With good, consistent maintenance, quality furnaces can last up to 20 years or more. The average life span is about 10-15 years. Once it reaches 10 years of age, it never hurts to think about what replacement model you’d prefer.
- Repair costs exceed 50% of the price of a new furnace. Replacing major parts like the blower assembly or heat exchanger can be expensive. If total repair costs exceed half the cost for a new furnace, then you’re better off replacing it.
- Your furnace is leaking carbon monoxide. This often means that the heat exchanger is cracked and needs to be replaced. This is a key component that may not be worth repairing over getting a new furnace.
- Your furnace is old and making odd noises. It’s normal for your furnace to produce some noise while heating your home, but groaning, banging or squealing sounds are not normal and should be checked by a Lakeside technician. Our qualified staff will offer an honest opinion on whether furnace repair or replacement is the best solution, based on the issue and cost of fixes.
- Your furnace is inefficient. Even if it’s 10 years old, selecting a high-efficiency model such as ENERGY STAR® can cause considerable savings in energy consumption—up to 25%.
- You’ve been avoiding routine preventive maintenance for years. Routine furnace maintenance is essential for keeping your heating system running smoothly and maintaining validity of warranties. Absent of it, minor issues will go unaddressed and can lead to substantial breakdowns in the future.
