When it comes to replacing your heater it can often feel like it is a big commitment, one that you and your budget may not be ready for. But you need to consider a few things when it comes to your heater and the number of repairs that you seem to be doing constantly. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning wants to help you understand why constantly repairing your heater may not be the better choice.
Cost of Heating Bills Change Over Time
When you get a new heater and the time comes that you need to repair a part of it, the good thing is that the cost should be fairly low. This is because most furnaces start with a warranty. The warranty will cover a lot of the cost. Eventually, the warranty will be gone but the repairs will be decently low at the beginning, maybe around $100 or so. The older your furnace gets the more the heater gets worn down and the bigger the repairs and more expensive the repairs can be. Pretty soon you get to the point that you need to consider, whether it is worth continuing to repair your heater versus just getting a new one. ¬There are two things you need to consider when you are deciding between repairs or a new purchase.
5000 Rule of Heating Repairs
There is a rule of 5000 when it comes to your heater repairs. You want to multiply the cost of the repairs by the age of your heater. If that total ends up being more than $5000 then it is smarter that you replace your furnace with a new one and then continue with any repairs you have and will have in the future.
Down Payment of a New Furnace Unit
When your furnace starts to get older and you start having more repairs. You need to consider, are those repairs costing you the same amount as a new heater or at least half of the amount of a new heater. If this is the case it is much better to put that money towards a new heater or put that money towards a down payment for a new heater. This way you get a new upgraded heater without having to make constant repairs and dealing with breakdowns.
