3 Reasons to Replace Your Heater This Year

Even though our summers are nice and warm, and often long, it doesn’t mean our winters don’t pack quite the punch. With nighttime temperatures already dropping low enough to begin using your heater, it’s time to ask yourself if your system is ready for the coming winter. If you’re considering replacing your current heater this year, we have 3 reasons below why now might be the best time.

1. Your Heater Is Aging

If this is the case, you might be better off replacing the system now rather than forcing it to struggle through a whole winter. After all, it’s during this time of the year that your heater starts to work the hardest, leaving it vulnerable to a breakdown.

If your heater does break down entirely, then you could very well be left without a heat source right when you need it the most. While replacing a heater that is still running might seem counterintuitive, a heater that is past its expected lifespan is a great candidate for a replacement.

2. Your Heating System Is Unreliable

You should not have to schedule major heater repairs every year, let alone multiple times in a single year. If your heating system is just not as reliable as it once was due to old age or poor maintenance, then replacing it makes good sense. Not only can you find a more efficient system that will work more reliably, you won’t have to empty your wallet as often for repairs!

3. Your Heater Isn’t What You Want

Many homeowners buy a place that already has a heater. Then they come to realize that it’s not necessarily what they would have chosen for themselves. If you’re unhappy with your heating system for any reason, then you should replace it! You may choose to eliminate the need for ductwork, or maybe you want to upgrade from a portable space heater to a heat pump. Whatever you need, we can help you make the best choice for your home.
