Signs Your Heater Needs to be Replaced
Is your heater nearing the end of its life expectancy? That can be one signal that it’s time to replace your unit. Other symptoms to watch for can include:
- If the system needs multiple - or costly - repairs.
- Your utility bills continue to rise, despite not increasing your usage.
- You have a dangerous issue - like a cracked heat exchanger, which can lead to a carbon monoxide leak.
- Your home isn’t heating to the desired temperature.
Benefits of Installing a New Heater
When you install a new heater, you are giving yourself peace of mind that the unit won’t need to be repaired or replaced in the near future. There are also additional benefits, including:
- A more energy-efficient unit, resulting in lower utility bills.
- A more comfortable home or building, as you can better control the temperature.
- Even heating throughout your property, eliminating hot and cold spots.
- Better indoor air quality as the new unit can properly remove any dust, dirt and other debris from the air.
When you want an alternative to a traditional furnace or heater, ask us about our radiant heating services.
Common Heater Problems
To keep your home comfortable all winter, it’s important to be aware of common problems your heater might encounter. Some issues you might need to call a heating contractor to repair can include:
- Uneven heating throughout your home, making some parts of the house warmer than others.
- Your unit shuts down unexpectedly before reaching the desired temperature. This can be due to a failing pilot light, faulty wiring or a malfunctioning thermostat.
- If your system takes too long to heat, and even turning up the thermostat doesn’t help, it can indicate leaky air ducts, a damaged fan motor, or problems with the belts and bearings.
