When making a decision to repair or replace your furnace, you can rely on our service experts here in Canton, OH at Forquer Heating & Air Conditioning.

On average, the life of a gas-fired furnace in Northeast Ohio is 20 years and the average lifespan of an air conditioner is about 15 years. 

If we come out and you're looking at an expensive repair on an old piece of equipment that's not in very good shape, it wouldn't be a very good investment to repair the unit and it may be time to think about a replacement. 

We like to give you your options with an educated viewpoint on what your equipment really looks like - then let you make the decision.

We won't know which products are the best fit for your home until we come out. We've found that a lot of older equipment was never sized correctly, and may in-fact be too large for your structure. This is especially true if you've done things to improve the structure of your home or have recently improved the insulation. It was a tendency many years ago to oversize the equipment, but we'll come out and give you our recommendation. We may even be able to downsize to cut a little on cost, be more energy efficient and more importantly make your home more comfortable. (Find out more about sizing your furnace by clicking here.)
