Know the Cost of Your Unit
Diagnosing the severity and cost of a furnace issue can be difficult, and Wyckoff technicians use various components to find the best solution for whatever problem you’re faced with. So, what are the indicators that you may need to only do a repair on your furnace as opposed to replacing the whole system? Knowing the difference can and will save you money in the long run.
How Simple is the Fix?
Many times, furnace issues can be fixed by simply replacing a part, or cleaning out your filter. Contact a Wyckoff professional to help diagnose what it is that is making your furnace act out, and if it is something like a cracked heat exchanger or an out-of-warranty compressor, most often a repair will do the trick. If it is a more complicated and time-intensive repair, then furnace replacement might be more cost-effective.
Is Your Furnace is Relatively New?
A furnace can live up to 20 years, so if your system is under 10 years in age, it might make more sense to pay for a repair in order to fully maximize what you can get out of that furnace. You can find the age of the furnace based on the inspection sticker or serial number. The first four digits of the serial number typically represent the year and week, or the week and the year, depending on the manufacturer.
