Deciding Whether to Repair or Replace

Although furnaces are tough machines that are built to last, nothing lasts forever. Sooner or later, after many winters of faithfully producing heat, eventually, a furnace runs into some kind of problem. We’ve put together a guide to help Pickerington homeowners decide if it’s time to repair or replace their furnaces:

Age of System

The average life of a home heating unit is usually between 15 and 20 years. As such, a homeowner should compare their furnace’s age to how well it’s been performing in recent years. If you don’t know how old your equipment is, or when it was installed, you can usually find the date of installation written on the unit’s face. Important factors that affect the lifespan include how well it was maintained, the frequency and cost of repairs, and the accuracy and workmanship of those repairs as well as the initial installation.


Anytime it comes to any sort of heat-generating equipment or appliance, safety should be something that is taken very seriously. If a furnace poses any sort of health or safety risk, it needs to be taken care of. If the repair work to resolve the safety hazard is expensive, temporary, or done to be unprofessional, replacement should be considered.

History of Repairs

Consider the amount you’ve spent on repairs since owning the unit. If the cost of repair is less than 50% of the cost of replacement, we recommend repairing your system. But keep in mind other factors like age, efficiency, etc.

System Efficiency

If your furnace isn’t very efficient, it won’t be able to heat your home as effectively as it was made to, which means it will use more gas or electricity, which will raise your home heating bills. A major sign that a home heating unit isn’t very efficient is when there are certain areas in the home, or certain rooms, that don’t have consistent temperatures. Hot zones and/or cool zones are more prevalent among older heating equipment. When a furnace is older and outdated, it has to strive harder to heat the entire home.

When to Repair vs. Replace Your Furnace in Pickerington, OH

It’s a common question we get from homeowners, new and old: “Should I repair or replace my furnace?” There are many factors to consider when making this decision. Here are a few reasons to lean toward repairing your furnace over replacing it.

Age of Unit

The lifespan of a furnace is 15-20 years on average. If your furnace 10 years or younger, we recommend looking into repair. We also highly recommend keeping up with routine maintenance to keep the warranty in good standing. Some repairs may be covered under certain manufacturer warranties.

Home Heating Safety Tips for Pickerington, OH Homeowners

We hope you’re enjoying a warm and cozy winter season in your well-heated, Central Ohio home. More importantly than comfort, however, we want you to keep your home safe throughout the winter and holidays. We’ve put together the following general three home heating safety tips to follow to avoid any hazardous circumstances:

1.) Create Safe Spaces

Anything that is flammable or combustible should be kept at least three feet away from any and all heating equipment and heat sources, including furnaces, fireplaces, and portable space heaters. This area should also be a “kid free zone.”

2.) Test Smoke Alarms

Don’t forget to test your smoke alarms monthly and make sure you have carbon monoxide (CO) alarms installed throughout your home to avoid the risk of CO poisoning and test them monthly as well. Replace batteries for all alarms periodically, and as needed.

3.) Report Gas Concerns

If you smell gas in your home or emanating from your gas heater, do not turn on the appliance or ignite it. Evacuate your home immediately if you suspect gas is leaking and call your local fire department or gas company before re-entering.
