Heating Replacement Signs You Shouldn’t Ignore

If you are unsure about having your heating system repaired or replaced, here are a few important signs that point towards a replacement.

  1. Your Heating Unit Is More Than 10 Years Old
    After a certain age, the rate at which parts begin to wear out increases. In the case of heating systems, the wear and tear rate starts increasing after the age of ten. The risk of a sudden failure or breakdown also increases after 10 years.
  2. Your Heating Bills Have Gone Through The Roof
    Have your energy bills gone up during the last few months despite any substantial change in the energy rates or your energy consumption pattern? This could be a sign of a need for a heating system replacement. Get your heating system checked by our professional to decide between repair and replacement.
  3. You Are Experiencing Frequent Breakdowns
    Frequent furnace breakdowns not only cause inconvenience but also lead to massive repair costs. If your furnace keeps breaking down on a frequent basis, consider replacing it immediately.
  4. You Applied The $5000 Rule
    The $5000 rule is a standard rule used by our HVAC experts to advise air conditioning and heating owners whether they should opt for a repair or replacement. If the product of the air conditioning and heating system’s age and the repair cost exceeds $5000, it is best to replace the system.
  5. Your Heater Is Not Generating Enough Heating
    With age, the efficiency of a heating system begins to deteriorate. If you experience reduced heating, despite regular maintenance and timely repairs, it’s a clear sign that you must replace your heating system.
  6. You Are Experiencing Poor Indoor Air Quality
    Poor indoor air quality can lead to various health issues among home occupants. If lately, you and your family members have been facing health issues, such as colds, influenza, dizziness, and respiratory problems, this could be due to poor air quality. Get your heating system inspected by our expert. If the problem persists, you might have to consider a home heater replacement.
  7. Your Heating System Is Based On An Outdated Technology
    If your heating system is around 10 to 15 years old, it will lack the features available in modern-day heating systems. For instance, new-age heating systems come with the latest features, such as inverter technology, smart control, and zone-wise heating. The best part about many of these features is that they can help you make substantial savings on your operating costs.
