Repair or Replace Your Furnace?

If your furnace is running inefficiently and you have lots of repairs, then it might be time to consider a new furnace. Sometimes, when your furnace isn’t working properly, it’s just a quick and inexpensive fix, like a tripped circuit breaker or a clogged filter. But occasionally the repair is so big and costly that it raises an age-old question: Is it more cost effective to fix what you have or replace it? Here’s how to decide.

Think safety first

If the problem presents a safety hazard, replacement is a no-brainer. For example, if your furnace has a cracked heat exchanger - the metal wall between the burning fuel and the air it’s heating—poisonous carbon monoxide gas could work its way into the household air supply, something you don’t want to risk. Other problems, like faulty electronics and stuck valves, can be repaired, which means you’ll need to do a cost-benefit analysis.
