Is Furnace Repair a Good Option for an Old Heating Unit?

December 29, 2013

Furnace RepairAround the holidays, money can be especially hard to come by. After planning family get-togethers and gift-giving, you may not have enough left over to replace a dying furnace unexpectedly. But replacement might not be your only option. At Tap-Roots we offer affordable furnace repair services that might be able to salvage a little more time from your old heater.

Assessing the Damage

When your heater starts acting funny, or stops acting at all, our Vancouver, BC heater repair team might have the solution. In many cases, a part that has been officially worn out or even a dirty filter can be the culprit that is keeping you in the cold. Taking a look at the state of your equipment can allow us to determine if you might have the chance to opt for furnace repair instead of a full replacement.

Something to Consider

While replacement is often the best option, repairs can be made to extend the life of your furnace in most cases. Although you might choose repair over replacement, you need to consider the fact that if your furnace is decades old it will almost certainly be functioning at a fraction of what it used to. Modern units require much higher standards (about 80% efficiency) than the older furnaces can meet, which can make a big difference in your monthly heating costs.

Call Tap-Roots at 604-222-1282 to schedule a furnace repair appointment with us if you aren’t getting the results that you need or want. By taking a closer look at the unit in your home, we can usually give you a pretty good estimate of how much life your furnace has left. If it turns out that repair is not a realistic option, we can assist you in choosing the best HVAC model for your home that will meet your needs better than your old furnace could.
