One of the most common questions we receive from homeowners is whether it’s wiser to repair or replace their plumbing, heating or air conditioning equipment. Use the formulas below to help with your decision, and trust an Oxford Plumbing & Heating technician to educate you about the pros and cons of repair and replacement. Our team doesn’t work on commission, so you’ll never get the hard sell.
(Cost of Repair) X (Age of Old Unit in Years) < (Cost of New Unit)
Multiply the cost of repair by the age of your old unit (in years). If the result is LESS than the cost of the new furnace or air conditioner, it may be worth investing in repair.
(Cost of Repair) X (Age of Old Unit in Years) > (Cost of New Unit)
Multiply the cost of your repair by the age of your old unit (in years). If the result is MORE than the cost of the new furnace or air conditioner, you may want to consider replacement. Keep in mind that replacing your air conditioner and furnace at the same time will cost less than replacing them individually.
