3 Signs You Need a New Heater

How to Decide If You Should Repair or Replace Your HVAC SystemThis isn’t the time of year when you want to battle with your heating system. It has been cold and wet and all anyone wants to do is hunker down at home in the warmth. If you can’t heat up your home though you have a problem on your hands.

It is frustrating to have a heater that refuses to work. While an HVAC contractor in Fresno, CA can provide repairs for your system, you may also need to discuss whether or not you need to replace your system.

Here’s what you need to know about the warning signs that you need a new heater.

Indicators That You Need a New Heater

Needing a new heater isn’t something that you should ignore. The longer you try to get by with your old system, the colder and worse off you’ll be. Check for these warning signs and reach out to our team to help if you discover that the time has come for a system replacement.

1. The heater is 10 to 15 years old

No heating system lasts forever. When your system hits the 10-year mark, it is best to at least start preparing for a replacement in the next couple of years. However, if your system is 15-years old or more and has started to show a decline in operations, you want to get that replacement done this week at the latest to avoid being without a heater.

2. The heating system needs repairs frequently

Repairs are normal for a heater to need every now and then. If, however, your heater needs repairs more often than not, say once a year at the least, then it is a sign that the system is wearing out. You should get ready to replace this heating system before it breaks down.

3. The heater has high repair bills

The frequency of the repairs isn’t the only issue to watch for. The price tag attached to those repair bills is another indicator to watch for. A repair bill that is overly expensive is one that is showing you that a replacement is a better choice. A good tip to remember is that if the price of the repair could pay for more than half of the price of a new heater installation, it is better to opt for the new system.

Expert replacement services are a call away

If you have a heater that seems to be on its way out, or you have one that has already broken down, then you should reach out to an expert to get the replacement taken care of. A new heater will improve your comfort and knock your energy bills back down to where they are supposed to be.
