Determining when your furnace is costing you more money than a new unit would depend on several factors, including the age and efficiency of your current furnace, the cost of repairs, and the cost of a new unit. Here are some key things to consider:

  1. Age of the furnace: If your furnace is more than 15 years old*, it may be less efficient and require more frequent repairs than a newer model. In this case, it may be more cost-effective to replace the furnace rather than continuing to repair it.

  1. Frequency and cost of repairs: If you find that your furnace requires frequent repairs, or the cost of repairs is becoming more expensive over time, it may be a sign that a new unit would be more cost-effective in the long run.

  1. Energy...


Ideally you don’t want to wait until the middle of winter when your furnace completely dies, leaving you in a panic with little time or patience to make a well thought out purchase. Here are signs that it might be time to think about a replacement:

  • The furnace needs to be repaired frequently, and repairs become more expensive.

  • The furnace is making unusual noises, such as buzzing or rattling.

  • The furnace is putting out dust, soot, or rust, especially around the register.

  • The furnace starts turning on and off more frequently.

  • The heat exchanger is cracked.

  • You’re not using it any more frequently, but your heating bills are skyrocketing.

  • Your house is heated unevenly, with some rooms...


“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Maintenance and care of your HVAC system is worth it, here’s why:

  • Avoid Breakdowns & Costly Repairs: Breakdowns never come at a convenient time and repairs are always more than you anticipate. Part of the reason why we also recommend a Labor Warranty.

  • Protect Your Warranty: Manufacturers warranties require regular professional maintenance.

  • Extend the Life of Your Furnace or HVAC System: With regular maintenance, a new system could last up to 20-25 years.

  • Avoid Hazards: Potential fire hazards from leaks in oil or gas lines, loose connections in the electrical lines, and carbon monoxide leaks can all be checked with a professional tune-up.

  • Improved Energy...


Everyone appreciates the value of having a manufacturer’s warranty. Although your system may be covered by a 10-year parts warranty, cost of labor in the HVAC industry is very high and having a 10-year labor warranty in addition to that could save you thousands. Let’s do the math!

Example 1: Say, a circuit board goes bad (common repair). The cost of the board is $300-$500 which is covered by your parts warranty. Labor for the Diagnostic fee is $135. Labor for installation of new circuit board is $350-$500 for a total of, on the lower end $485. That one repair is roughly just half the cost of a 10-year labor warranty.

Example 2: It is highly likely that a system will need 2 capacitor replacements within 10 years. Two diagnostic fees = $270 + flat rate charges on 2 new...
