How To Know When To Repair Or Replace Your Furnace?
Factors Affecting the Decision
All furnaces have an average life expectancy for which they can work efficiently. After crossing this age, almost all furnaces stop functioning efficiently. The average age can range from 10 to 20 years, depending on the type of furnace you own.
If your furnace has crossed this range, you should replace it with a new one. Forcing your old system to work this winter can lead to high energy bills and safety issues. However, if your furnace is within this range, you can continue using it after a heating repair job in Layton, UT.
A furnace faces wear and tear damage that you cannot control or limit while working. To fix this damage, you should contact our technician for repair jobs before it becomes irreparable. A repair job once a month or two months is acceptable.
However, if your furnace malfunctions excessively even after annual servicing, you should consider a replacement. Instead of spending money on numerous repair jobs each month, you should save it to invest in a new furnace.
High Energy Bills
A furnace is an electrical appliance, so it will consume energy while working, increasing your energy bills. You can expect an increase in your energy bills, but if the increase is more than you expected, you should check your appliance.
A furnace that consumes more energy than it should indicates malfunctioning. You should contact our technician to confirm whether the furnace has a minor problem or needs a complete replacement.
