4 Signs You Need a New Heater

It is getting colder by the day and you know this for a fact because you can’t seem to heat the house. No matter how long you run your heater, it never seems to make a dent in your indoor temperatures. You are cold and rightfully frustrated. That heater is supposed to keep the home warm during this time of year so why isn’t it doing its job?

The truth is that you likely have a heater that simply isn’t capable of heating much of anything anymore. If that is the case, then you need to get a replacement for your heating system in Gillette, WY. Check for these warning signs that your heater is on its way out and then reach out to us to get started on your upgrade.

4 Signs You Need a New Heater

If you notice these indicators, make sure to talk to a professional about getting a replacement for your heating system.

  1. Your heating system is 10 or more years old: Every home comfort system has an age limit. In the case of a heating system like a heat pump or a furnace, that age limit comes around the 10 or 15-year mark. After this, even if your heater is still operating, an upgrade is a good idea simply because of the potential energy savings you can get from it.
  2. Your system needs constant repairs: Repairs are going to pop up throughout the lifespan of your heater. The question is how often are you having to repair your system? If you only need repairs once every few years, it is likely that you can get by with the repair once again. However, if you’ve noticed that you need repairs as often as you need maintenance ( which is every year) then it is likely that you have a heater in need of replacement
  3. Repair costs have gotten to be overly expensive: By default, repairs are going to be pricier than maintenance costs. That said, they shouldn’t be exorbitant. If you notice that your repair bills make up half or more of the cost of a new system, it is better to put that money towards a heater upgrade instead.
  4. Your system simply cannot produce heat: Have you noticed that no matter how on the ball you are with your maintenance or how prompt you are with your repairs your heater never seems to work? If this sounds familiar in any way, then that means that you should invest in a system replacement. A heater that can’t work is one that you shouldn’t be wasting money on.
