Repair Or Replace?

multi line
While we offer air conditioning and furnace repairs to all makes and models in the Kitchener, ON, area, sometimes it is more economical to upgrade to a newer and more efficient system. If you’re uncertain about whether a repair or replacement is best, read on to learn when it might be time for a new system.

How Do you Know?

To better understand, a few questions you can ask yourself are:

    1. How old is your system?
      If it is over 15 years old, it may be time to consider a replacement. Although they can still be repaired, oftentimes parts are expensive and harder to obtain, and it’s only a matter of time until the next component fails. You may also find you need frequent repairs with an older unit.
    2. How much is the cost of the repair?
      If your existing AC or furnace falls under warranty coverage, it may be a good idea to take advantage of that and have the parts replaced or serviced by the installer. A general rule of thumb is to consider the cost of the repair and multiply it by the age of your system.
If it is below $5,000, it may be a good choice to replace the broken component and get a few more years out of it. On the other hand, if your calculation results in over $5,000, the best option may be to replace it with a more modern and efficient alternative, which will minimize your expenses for the next 10 years.
For example, if you need a new gas valve which will cost $800, multiply that by the age of your 7-year-old furnace. You are looking at a $5,600 calculation. In this case, it is more cost-efficient to replace your furnace with a newer model.
