Furnaces are one of the most popular ways in which Denver residents choose to heat their homes. They are very effective, highly efficient and, with a professional installation and routine maintenance, can last for years. Eventually, though, as with any home heating system, your furnace and its performance will begin to degrade. When this happens it can be difficult to decide whether your furnace should be repaired or replaced. Working with a professional Denver heating technician from Bell Plumbing and Heating can help ensure that you make the right choice for your home heating needs.
Many factors must be considered when deciding whether to repair or replace your furnace. One of the primary factors to consider is the age of your furnace. As a furnace ages its components suffer some general wear and tear. With regular maintenance and tune-ups this wear and tear can be minimized. If your furnace is simply not as efficient as it once was due to age and use, though, it may no longer be worth repairing. A furnace replacement may be your best option.
Efficiency is another factor to consider. As furnaces age they often lose efficiency, costing more to operate. If your furnace is fairly old, though, it may not have been manufactured with the efficiency capabilities that you see in modern furnaces. Even if your old furnace operates at full efficiency levels those levels may pale in comparison to the efficiency that modern furnaces achieve during operation. Consider the efficiency of your furnace as well as your budget when deciding to repair or replace your furnace.
Finally, you must also consider the service needs of your furnace. Are you paying for frequent repair services or high maintenance costs? If so the initial investment made in purchasing a replacement furnace can be offset by long term energy savings. Just because a furnace can be repaired does not necessarily mean that it is worth repairing.
