Considering the cold, snowy weather that we have in this area during the winter season, it is difficult to overstate just how important it is that you have a great heating system in place. If you want to get the most from any heating system, a professional installation and regular maintenance are key. Even the best heating systems from top manufacturers, however, will not last forever. You don’t want to wait for your heater to break down entirely before replacing it.
That being said, we also understand that you don’t want to waste your money by replacing your heater prematurely. It can be a difficult line to walk, deciding when the time is right for a new heater in Stamford, CT. Fortunately, there are a number of factors to consider that can help you to make the right decision for your particular situation.
How Old Is Your System?
This is one of the major factors to keep in mind when you are thinking about replacing your heater. Now, just because a heater has an expected lifespan of, say, 15 years does not mean that it is going to stop working at the point that it hits that age. It is a good number to be aware of, however, and the fact is that replacing a heater of this age can benefit you in a number of ways.
Newer heaters are more efficient and will likely be more reliable. Plus, trying to push your heater as far as you can past this age could leave you with a broken down heater right when you need it most. Sometimes it is best to let a system go out on a high note, and to replace it before a complete breakdown occurs.
How Much Are You Paying to Run It?
As mentioned above, chances are high that an older heater simply is not working at the level of efficiency that you’d expect from a more modern system. It’s also possible that you were working with a limited budget when you bought your existing heater, and had to compromise on efficiency. Perhaps your system has just started to work less efficiently as a result of wear and tear over the years.
Whatever the cases may be, replacing your system with a more efficient one can help you to scale back energy costs as you heat your home. It could be substantial enough to offset the initial cost of the investment over time. We can help you to weigh your efficiency options.
Are You Satisfied with It Overall?
Sometimes, homeowners may choose to replace their heating systems just because they’re not the right fit for their individual needs and user preferences. Perhaps you want to take advantage of a ductless heating system or heat pump. Maybe you’ve always wanted to use a boiler for radiant heating.
No matter what type of heater you use, it should satisfy you completely. Your comfort is important enough that compromises really shouldn’t be made. We’re here to guarantee your satisfaction with your heater.
