Heater Repair or Replacement: How to Choose

Heater Repair or ReplacementEvery homeowner dreads the day when a heater decides to take a turn for the worse. Whether you notice a substantial change in the temperature in your home or you are surprised by a high heating bill, finding dependable heater repair is of utmost importance. You may need an entire heater replacement or a simple repair depending on the severity of your issue. McQuerry’s 24-Hour Heating & Air can help you determine which will work best in your specific situation.

Your heater may need a simple repair if:

  • Your heater is under warranty - Check to see whether or not your heater is still under warranty. If the cost of the heater repair is covered by the warranty, repairing your furnace may be your best bet.
  • Your heater is relatively new - A furnace generally has a lifespan of 10 to 15 years. Minor repairs may be needed throughout the life of the heater. However, if your furnace is more than eight years old, you may want to consider St. Louis, MO furnace repair.
  • You’ve maintained your heater through the years - Heaters that have been well-maintained may last longer than those that have not. If you have been diligent in maintaining your heater, which includes having it tuned-up each year, you may get away with simply repairing it.





Remember, an efficient furnace results in a more affordable heating bill as well as a more comfortable home.
