A furnace repair can cause significant anxiety. That’s because you might not initially know how much it’ll cost. Furnace repairs don’t have to be overwhelming, though. To ensure the next furnace repair in your White Lake, North Carolina, home goes as smoothly as possible, make sure to ask these questions:
How Much Will It Cost?
A service technician should never answer this question until after they assess your furnace. But the longer you wait to get your furnace repaired, the worst the problem can become. As a result, it could lead to a higher repair bill. That’s why you should deal with repairs right away.
What’s the Problem?
Always ask the HVAC contractor what’s causing the problem. When you know what’s gone wrong and why, you can try to avoid the same problem in the future. As a result, you’ll prevent frequent breakdowns and expensive repair costs. Some furnace repairs are a direct result of failure to perform regular preventative maintenance, while others result from an aging system and are out of your control.
Should I Replace the Furnace?
Ask the HVAC service technician’s opinion on whether to replace the system. In most cases, if the system hasn’t reached three-quarters of its expected lifespan, you can avoid a replacement. However, a reputable and honest service technician will provide spot-on advice regarding when it’s time to replace instead of repair the furnace. At Bass Air Conditioning Company, we provide free in-home estimates on system replacements.
Do I Need Maintenance?
Finally, ask about signing up for a furnace preventative maintenance plan. Ideally, you’ll have preventative maintenance performed on the furnace at least once in the fall before the heating season starts. As a result, you’ll reduce the risk of breakdowns and costly repairs.
