With the winter weather here, you may have realized the cold has affected your heating system, causing it to stop working abruptly. While most NH & MA homeowners typically think an HVAC contractor would want you to replace the whole thing, that’s not always the case. Depending on the issue you’re having, you’ll either need to repair or replace the system.

The following are all things that can be repaired on a heating system:

  • Temperature and pressure sensors
  • Minor defective, electrical issues
  • Condensate removal pump

Parts you’ll want to replace on a heating system:

  • If your compressor isn’t under warranty, it can be a very expensive repair. It can be anywhere between 50-75% of the cost of the whole replacement. If you decide to replace this important part, there isn’t a guarantee that all the other parts will continue to work.
  • Much like the compressor, a damaged heat exchanger can be a very expensive repair. Repairing it also does not guarantee that the heating system, will work, as the other parts will likely fail.

Keep in mind, the best way to determine if your heating system needs to be repaired or replaced is to contact a professional! Call A+ Plumbing, Heating & Cooling at 603-518-5777 to receive a free quote on your heating system.
