Heating Repair or Replacement

Depending on the type of heating system that you have, it should last 15 years or longer. Electric systems have even longer lifespans than gas systems. However, lifespan is only an estimate. If you properly maintain your system, it may outlast its lifetime. On the other hand, if you neglect regular maintenance, you may need to replace a heating system early.

Should You Replace or Repair Your Heating System?

When your heating system is broken, you may wonder whether you should repair or replace it. That is a complicated question. Some HVAC companies will push you to replace your system because that is usually more profitable for the company. However, the decision needs to be based on your needs, not our profit.

At Worlock, we are dedicated to our customers.

We are dedicated to giving our customers the information that they need to make the right choices for their families If you have a failing heating unit, we will help you understand the costs of replacement as well as the costs of repair and any repairs we foresee you needing in the near future. We will also explain what type of fuel savings you might get from efficiency improvements in newer heating units. With this information, you can decide whether to replace or repair your system. As a general rule, we recommend replacement whenever the cost of a repair is 50% or more the cost of a new system. However, we may also recommend repair if your system is older than its anticipated lifespan, if there are safety issues in the system, or if improvements in efficiency are likely to make your expenses lower. Many customers want to replace their current heaters with one of the same size and type. However, we may recommend a different type of heater, depending on your energy usage patterns and the size of your home. You may be able to install a more efficient system, such a geothermal system or heat pump, which can increase your efficiency and cut your energy bills. We spend the time to help you get the best option for your own.
