This is a tough question sometimes.
Sometimes it makes complete sense to just have your system repaired. If your system is newer, you haven't had many problems, and you have it annually maintained, you should be fine to just have it repaired. Having your system tuned up on a regular basis can expand the life of your heating/cooling system and it helps with the manufacturers warranties on the system. So make sure you keep up with your tune ups.
Sometimes it makes complete sense to replace your furnace and/or heat pump because it is so old or it's broken. In this case, you want to replace for sure. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, it is seriously time to consider replacement for a heat pump or AC around 10 years or older and for a furnace is 15 years or older, especially with all the energy efficient systems available.
But what if you have a furnace and/or heat pump that is not that old and works fine most of the time? Well, then it would depend on:
- If the repair costs are as much as it would be to replace it;
- If a new system would save you a lot of money on your utility bills; and
- How much the future costs to repair your system would be.
There are many factors that go into making this decision. We can help you make the right decison. We use a true cost calculator to help us guide our customers as to whether it makes sense to repair or replace.
