Heating systems can last a long time if properly maintained and cared for. Unfortunately, like everything in life, your heating system will age and begin to work less efficiently than before, which leads to frequent repairs or a replacement. As a homeowner, it is important to know when it’s time to replace your existing heating system. Continue reading our blog for signs you need to replace your heating system.
One of the most telling signs it’s time to replace your current heating system is when you frequently have to repair it. Your heating system should not need a repair every time the heating season begins; that is major red flag to homeowners. It may seem that paying for repairs is a quick and cheaper way to mitigate the problem, but those issue can add up and become costly. You are better off upgrading to a new heating system that is more efficient.
It is common for homeowners to not know the exact age of their heating system. If your heating system is anywhere between 15 and 20 years old, then it is time for a replacement. Over time, your heating system’s efficiency will deteriorate, leading to more money spent on your energy bills.
Do you feel like certain rooms or areas in your home are warmer or cooler than the others? This is another sign that your heating system needs to be upgraded or replaced. Many people tend to ignore this issue because it doesn’t seem to be a major inconvenience to them. In reality, the ductwork in your home has been poorly maintained, causing your heating system to not properly distribute warm air throughout.
If your energy bills have been outrageously high over the past few months, you should not ignore this sign. A high heating bill means that your heating system has not been as efficient and is having to work much harder than normal to heat up your home. This is due to your heater becoming more deteriorated over time.
