Heating Repairs vs. Replacement
Many homeowners consider heating system replacements when they're facing a substantial repair. As a rule of thumb, replacement is the best option when repairs equal or exceed half the cost of a new system.
Alternatively, multiply the repair estimate by the age of your heater. If the result exceeds $5,000, you're better off investing in a replacement. In other words, the older your heater is, the less you should spend on repairs. Before deciding, have our professionals inspect your HVAC system to ensure that you're making the right choice.
