From furnace repair to maintenance, you have your system cared for to ensure you are getting the most from your investment. At Blue Mountain Air, we provide the quality services needed to keep your unit in top running condition. Many home owners as us questions about furnace systems especially when considering repair versus replacement. Below are a few tidbits of information to help you if you are struggling with the same dilemma.
What is Furnace Repair?
To get started, you must understand the terms of heating service. Repair service is when a licensed and qualified technician arrives at your home to take a look at your unit. The system may be acting oddly or have shut down completely. One of our technicians at Blue Mountain Air would take a look at your unit, assess the damage and then report their findings to you. Our technicians arrive on your property with tools and parts to quickly take care of any issue you may have. Some big repairs may require that you have a part special ordered and we can take care of that for you as well.
What is Furnace Replacement?
Replacement refers to actually replacing your existing unit with a new one. This is done when you want to do away with your old system and replace it with a newer model. With replacement service, we will assess your current unit, evaluate what system will work best and then provide you with an estimate for installation.
Which Option Is Better?
Furnace Repair service and furnace replacement both have their benefits. With furnace repair service, you have a lower cost to get your unit back to proper operating order. You will pay very little to have your system operational. Compare this to the thousands you will spend on a new unit, you may be better off having the system repaired instead of replaced.
However, you could just as easily look at the constant cost of repairs and see how you could save money by having a new unit installed. The monthly operation cost would be lower and you would not have to go without service time and time again as new unit is more reliable.
Pros and Cons to Consider
There are several pros and cons to consider. Does the price of a new unit outweigh the constant cost of repairs? Will you save more money each month by installing a new unit? Can you get by with a payment each month for a new unit or should you use savings to purchase a replacement unit? There are several questions you should ask yourself to see what will work best for you and your family.
Take notes of what your unit can provide for you and what you have to put up with. Then compare to notes on a new unit. Do you see a big difference? Sometimes this is the best way to determine if you need to stick with your old system or consider a new installation.
