Scotch Plains Heating Company

Like any great Scotch Plains heating company, we seek to offer the best information about your furnace and when you should or should not replace (when necessary) or repair (regularly).  One of the most important things to consider when looking at furnace 101 is how old your furnace is.  If it is an older model and not very efficient, it will probably need some type of repair or maintenance.  This should be pretty painless and pretty inexpensive, but make sure you are working with a top quality heating company before investing too much trust in a less-than “professional”.

There are other times, however, when the repairs could cost more in the long run than just replacing the whole furnace.  At this point, it would be important to consider if they should repair or replace.  Let’s take a look. . .

Scotch Plains Heating Company – Furnace 101

In other words, a cost-benefit analysis of your furnace and things to consider:

1.  How old is your furnace unit?

If your heating unit or furnace is more than ten years old, it is probably going to cost quite a bit of money in lack of efficiency.  Because new furnaces are a lot more efficient in the long run, you can probably save even up to twenty percent in heating costs just by replacing your old furnace with a newer model.

2.  How consistent are your utility bills?

If your heating bill is consistently increasing, this is a sign that your furnace may need some repairs or adjustments.  Though the seasons change and the amount of heating and cooling that your home requires will change in different ways, it is important to be sure that your utility bills are not consistently increasing. This is a sure sign that your furnace is probably on it’s last legs.  At this point, you will want to check the cost of any additional repairs when deciding if you should keep or replace your furnace.

3.  Does your furnace evenly heat your home?

If your furnace does not evenly heat your home, there is a chance that you have poor insulation, dirty duct work, or a furnace in need of repairs or replacement.  Check to be sure that the first two are not the case, then go ahead and make an appointment for a professional to check with your furnace to see if it needs to be repaired or replaced.

After considering the above three options, you may still want to consult a professional to know if you should just continue to maintain and repair your furnace or if it’s time for a new one altogether.  Try to keep your service records with your furnace consistently so you are aware of how often your furnace has been maintained and any previous issues that have come up.  If you’re interested in scheduling routine maintenance, a furnace service repair, or looking into getting a new furnace altogether, call your trusty local heating and cooling company today!
