The chilly weather in Tomball means it’s time to book your annual furnace service. If your furnace is getting past its prime, it might be time to start thinking about a furnace replacement.
As is the case with any home improvement project, a new furnace is a considerable investment in your home. The pros at Premium Air Services LLC can help you determine if it’s time for a furnace replacement or your yearly furnace service. We have some things to keep in mind while deciding the future of your furnace.
1. Age of System
This will most likely be the most telling factor in deciding if it’s time for a repair or replacement. There have been great strides in furnace technology over the years, including an increase in efficiency and a decrease in noise. If your furnace has reached maturity, it may be time to start looking for a new system. The experts at Premium Air Services LLC can work with you to determine if it’s the appropriate time for a replacement.
2. Cost Comparison
Purchasing a new furnace is an expense a homeowner doesn’t want to make until it’s crucial. That’s why comparing the amount you’ll spend frequently repairing your furnace against the cost of a replacement is a crucial part of the decision-making process. When you begin comparing the two we have a few things to keep in mind.
- Keep track of when your warranty expires and note what it covers so you’re always saving everything you can.
- When evaluating what size your new furnace needs to be it’s wise to call in the professionals. A technician will determine a load calculation based on your home size and various other factors such as home design, insulation and the typical routine of people living inside the home.
- The energy efficiency level of the system will factor into the expense of a replacement.
- Furnaces with higher AFUE ratings will lead to greater energy savings down the road.
After you’ve researched the costs to continually repair your system or to replace it, there’s a straightforward rule to use as a guide. If your repair cost is 1/3 the price of a replacement or if your furnace is reaching old age, the best option may be a replacement.
