When Should I Replace My Heater?

Friday, November 1st, 2013

A heater is an important part of your life during a long winter season—as well as during the occasional cold days that crop up the rest of the year—but no heater will last forever. Eventually, you will have to swap out your old system for a new one. This is a big step to take, since installation requires time and money. However, the investment you make in a new heater will reward you immensely in the future with better quality heating and more energy-efficient performance.

So how can you tell that your old heater has come to the point where a new installation is the most cost- and comfort-effective way to go? We’ll offer you a short guide here of some of the tell-tale signs that you should schedule heating replacement in Norwalk, CT with Celco Heating and Air Conditioning. We have 35 years of experience with heater replacement, so if you want an expert’s opinion on your old heater’s performance to help you make the decision, contact us.

Warning signs it’s time to replace your heater:

Mounting repair needs: Look over the last three years’ worth of repair services you’ve needed for your heater. Most likely, if you’ve had multiple service calls, they will continue in the future—and probably increase. This is the strongest sign that your heater is nearing the end of its lifespan. Ask a technician if a replacement will cost less in the future than continuing repairs.

Elevated heating bills: As a heating system wears down, it will begin to drain more power in order to provide the same amount of warmth. You’ll see this reflected in your power bills. A sudden spike in energy costs may indicate a need for repairs, but if the inflation remains, then you should look into getting a new heater.

Constant noisy operation: Heaters that develop malfunctions often warn their owners with unusual noises like clanking and groaning. But if your boiler, furnace, or other system begins to make a continuous loud series of noises during regular operation, its parts might be too aged to work properly.

Keep in mind that all of the above problems are not 100% guarantees that you need to get a new heater, even though they are major warnings. Bring in an HVAC professional to inspect your system to give you a more definite answer—as well as options for a new system to replace your old one if that ends up as your best choice.
