Furnace Care in Minneapolis / St. Paul

We don’t need to tell you that you won’t get far during a Minnesota winter without a properly functioning furnace. In addition to regular maintenance programs, we’re here to help you navigate the ever-tricky “repair or replace” dilemma that practically all homeowners face at some point.

Repair or Replace: Weighing Your Options

Repairing your furnace may cost less than outright replacement, but at a certain point, it stops making sense to repair an old or inefficient heating system that’s reaching the end of its life. In general, we recommend replacing your furnace rather than repairing it when:

  • The repair cost exceeds 50% of the cost of a new furnace
  • Your existing furnace is more than 10 years old
  • You’ve had to repair your existing furnace multiple times in consecutive winters

Remember: the upfront replacement cost only tells part of the story. By upgrading to a new, more energy-efficient furnace, you can save on your home heating costs, year in and year out, for years to come. This offsets your initial investment and provides sustained value, winter after winter.
