Gas Wall Furnace Replace or Repair?
As with any appliance, a Gas Wall Furnace also has a service life. These questions can help you make a decision regarding whether to replace or repair wall heater:
How Old is Your Wall Heater?
An average furnace can efficiently serve you for 15 years and even last up to 30 years with proper care. But without regular maintenance, the service life of your space heater can drastically decrease. Generally, it is recommended that you replace your Gas Wall Furnace 15 years after the initial installation.
Are You Noticing Temperature Fluctuations and High Energy Bills?
If you’re noticing sudden changes in temperature and a spike in energy bills even after a repair, this is a clear sign that your heating unit is losing efficiency over time.
Are You Repairing Your Gas Wall Heater Frequently?
If the total repair cost is more than half of the unit’s current value, the most cost-effective decision is to invest in a new Gas Wall Heater. Replacement makes the most sense because a new model will be more energy-efficient and cost-effective, both in the short and long term.
