If your heating system is no longer protected by a manufacturer warranty, it usually makes more financial sense to schedule furnace replacement than to pay for constant repairs. The expenses associated with repair such as diagnostic charges, after-hours rates and labour/part costs can quickly add up and actually cost more than upgrading to a new heating system.
Unless you have a protection plan through a heating and cooling company that includes service calls, you’ll be expected to pay for a diagnostic charge each time a certified technician comes to your home. If your furnace breaks down in the middle of the night or the weekend, expect to pay premium prices for after-hours rates (or wait until business hours to have a technician comes out). You’ll also be paying for all the costs associated with the repair (both the cost of the replacement part and labour) out-of-pocket—which can be expensive depending on the part that needs to be replaced.
Even a few repairs a year can quickly add up and cost more than it would to replace your old furnace. Heating systems can be expected to last anywhere between 15 and 20 years, depending on the brand, maintenance and upkeep. If your current heating system is at the top end of the range, you can expect increased repairs as the years go on. Before your furnace completely breaks down and you’re scrambling to schedule emergency furnace replacement, give yourself the time to research manufacturers and installation companies and install a new high-efficiency furnace on your terms— and save some money on repair bills.
