There are different reasons to consider replacing your heater. Regardless of what yours may be, getting the job done before you really need your heating system is definitely the way to go. Dial our number today with any questions that you have, or to discuss your heating replacement options.
Age, Performance, and Reliability
These are three of the most important facets of your heating system to consider when it comes to deciding whether to replace it or not. Age is a fairly straightforward one. All heating systems have a projected lifespan. If your system is rapidly closing in on the tail end of its expected lifespan, or if it is already past that point, you may want to consider replacing it. Not only does this limit the risk of a breakdown during the coldest time of the year, but it is also a great opportunity to upgrade to a more efficient system. Even if your existing heater was efficient at the time of purchase, manufacturing expectations may have changed since then, or it may simply have lost some of its efficiency capability over itme.
The overall performance of your heater is another factor to consider. Does it struggle to heat your entire home effectively and evenly? Does it cost too much to heat your home, perhaps because it is too small to perform as successfully as it should? Is it simply not the ideal type of system that you’d choose, having inherited it with your home? Whatever the reason for an underwhelming performance, it’s reason enough to consider a replacement.
Finally, how often do you find yourself scheduling heater repairs? There comes a point when the cost of repairs, as well as the inconvenience of scheduling them during the winter season, is no longer justifiable. If you’ve hit the limit when it comes to an unreliable heating performance, just give us a call.
