When should I have new heating installation?
- Your current heater is extremely old: What qualifies as “extremely old” depends on the heater, but anything over 20 years is probably near the end up its service life. If you have a heater that old, you should have professionals examine it to see how efficiently it is working and if it might be more economical and practical to replace it now and avoid the trouble of having it break down later.
- Your heating bills continue to climb: An aging heater will begin to work inefficiently and strain to produce the same level of heat it once did. If you see that your heating bills are increasing, even with prompt repairs and routine maintenance, then your heater probably has become too worn down to function as it should any more.
- Repairs become frequent: If it feels like you’re having your heater serviced so often that you should offer room and board to your repair technician, then you should check over the costs of all your recent repairs and compare the total to the price of a new installation. You might be surprised—and then run to the phone to schedule installation.
- Constant noisy operation: Any single, unusual noise from a heater can warn you about an individual repair need. But a system that grinds, rumbles, and groans whenever it comes on is approaching the stage of a full breakdown… one from which it will not likely recover.
