Is It Time To Replace Your Heater?

Over the course of your heater’s life, you may encounter minor repairs that need to be made. However, these repairs can make it hard to recognize when your heater is failing altogether. That’s why you should keep an eye out for one or more of the following symptoms that indicate a replacement is near.

Heater Age

By far, the number one factor that affects your heater replacement is how old it is. If you inherited your heating system with the purchase of your home, try to estimate the age of your unit. Heaters are designed to last upwards of 10 years — and they can surpass that with good care and maintenance over the years. After your system reaches 10 years old, it’s far more likely that you will see more signs of inefficiency and deterioration.

Frequent Repairs

Consistent repairs are a common sign that your heater is wearing down. As time passes, seals, ball bearings and other components of your system simply reach their limit. If you have to make several heater repairs in a short amount of time, consider how cost-effective continued repairs are. It may be better to invest in a replacement that will perform flawlessly for years.

Decreased Comfort

You may think that suffering through the inconveniences of heater failure gives you more time before replacement, but at what cost? Does your heater provide enough warmth? Does it make disruptive sounds or emit odors? These are signs of looming system failure that you shouldn’t ignore. Plus, you deserve to have dependable heating in your home! When those chilly nights come around, you’ll want heat at your fingertips and less stress about whether your system will work or not.

Poor Efficiency

As heaters and furnaces age, it’s well known that their efficiency decreases rapidly. This means that your unit has to suck down more and more energy to provide the same level of warmth to your home. Whether the fuel source is gas or electricity, you can’t afford the massive energy waste that an older unit causes. In fact, your HVAC system is responsible for over half of your home’s total energy consumption! A newer system can reduce that energy use and relieve your monthly energy bill.
