How to know whether to repair or replace your furnace

Crown Plumbing & Heating in Smithville, Ontario, has been providing professional plumbing and HVAC services for homes and businesses in Smithville and the surrounding areas since 1983.

Their expert technicians have answered hundreds of service calls for furnace repairs, and understand how frustrating and inconvenient it can be when a furnace malfunctions during one of the coldest days of the year.  

There are many reasons why furnaces stop working, or are not working at their best. In both instances, it is frustrating to have a furnace that is working inconsistently, or costing you a lot of money in energy consumption and repairs.

So how do you know when to stop repairing your furnace and replace it instead? The best way is to have your heating system inspected by a specialist, like those at Crown Plumbing & Heating who knows how a furnace should operate and can advise you on the most cost-effective option.

Unless you built your current home, you may not know how old your furnace is or how well it has been maintained. If you have replaced your furnace but have not maintained it annually, it may also not be in optimal working condition. This is especially true if your furnace is over 15 years old, the time frame the experts suggest you either upgrade or consider furnace replacement options.

This means that the first thing you need to determine is how old your furnace is by either calling the manufacturer or calling in a professional.

One telltale sign that your furnace may need replacing is if you have to frequently call for repair services; however, if it is a newer model, replacement repairs or maintenance are probably all that is needed.

If your bills are going up but your usage is the same, this is an indication that your heating system is not working properly. Also, if it frequently cycles on and off, or is becoming increasingly louder with buzz or hum noises, it is most likely time to replace your furnace.

The best way to know for sure is to call an HVAC specialist at Crown Plumbing & Heating. They will do a furnace inspection and check to see how efficiently it is working, and let you know if you should repair or replace your furnace.
