Heating: Repair or Replace?
Posted on: November 20, 2015
Here in East Lake, temperatures have yet to drop below 60, so most residents are not even thinking about switching on the heat yet. However, when we get that inevitable cold front, you want the reassurance that your home will be toasty and warm at the touch of a button. If that last time you received heating repair was 2014, it’s time to call Midway Services. With so little use, your heater could be broken, need necessary repairs, or be running inefficiently, and you would not know until it is too late. When you are trying to decide between repair and replace, there are a few things to consider.
Before making a decision, talk to your East Lake technician to figure out the costs of heating repair, compared to replacing the system. If fixing it is less expensive, that is usually the answer; however it can be more cost-effective to buy a new system rather than continuing to pay for broken parts on an older unit.
Time of Year
Since we use the heat so rarely here in East Lake, you may be able to get away with some small heating repairs now, so you can save and replace the system before winter of next year. Talk to your technician to figure out what will work best for your family.
While heating will generally be more expensive than AC, if your bills are a lot higher than you remember them being last year, it may be time to upgrade. HVAC units’ energy efficiency is getting better every year, so making sure you have the most efficient unit will help keep your monthly energy bills as low as possible.
