In Vancouver WA. When is it best to replace my furnace instead of fixing it?

To repair or replace your furnace In Vancouver WA. That is the question that likely is what you think about whenever your heating or cooling system stops working. Often, repairing it may be the most affordable solution although it might not be the best choice over the long run.

Factors to consider include:

Fifty Percent Rule

When the cost of repairs in In Vancouver WA. approaches 50% of the value of your heating or cooling system, it’s generally time to replace the system.

Other Factors

Even if needed repair costs are not quite as daunting as 50%, you might want to replace your system anyway if it’s more than 12 years old or you’ve had a history of problems with it. Also, it might be worthwhile to take advantage of one of several opportunities:
•Convenience – In Vancouver WA. When you purchase a new system, you can avoid the hassle of unexpected repairs down the line, and you don’t have to sit around uncomfortable while waiting for parts.
•Lower utility bills – In Vancouver WA. A high-efficiency home comfort system from Lennox can save you hundreds of dollars each year in energy costs, compared to an older system.
•Energy tax credits –  You can recover up to 30% of the cost of select high-efficiency systems in the form of tax credits.
•Friendlier refrigerant – Due to growing environmental concerns, the U.S. federal government has mandated that all HVAC manufacturers phase R-22 refrigerant-based equipment out of production. In response, Lennox now mainly manufactures cooling systems with R-410A, a U.S. EPA-approved, chlorine-free refrigerant.
•Warranty Assurance – If you have an older outdoor unit that needs repair, but you're not ready to replace your indoor air handler or furnace, a dry-charged unit may be a cost-effective solution. It allows you to avoid the costs of ongoing repair, while also giving you a brand-new outdoor unit backed by a 5-year Limited Warranty.
•Enhanced comfort – Advanced technologies that improve energy efficiency also enhance your comfort, so you can enjoy more even temperatures, better humidity control and a constant flow of conditioned air.
