Why choose American Heating and Cooling?
Is it time to think about installing a new heater? You rely on your heater to keep things comfortable and cozy during those cold months. Few of us want to pass the winter season freezing inside our own homes! But there may come a time when repairs just won’t cut it for your heater or wind up cost as much or near as much as a new heater.
Signs You Should Start Thinking About a New Heater Installation
Here are some red flags that indicate it may be time to think about getting and installing a new heater in your home:
You have to crank up the heat up high to feel any warmth at all
Yikes, that sure is tough on your wallet and your HVAC system. If you’re feeling chilly no matter how much you play with the thermostat, that’s a definite sign that your heater is not performing as it should and warrants having a professional come inspect it.
Your energy bills are going up
Sure, it’s normal to see some fluctuation from month to month or season to season. But if your energy bills are higher than ever with no reasonable explanation, it’s time to take a closer look. Review utility bills from the past year and see how your energy usage compares. If your heater isn’t functioning effectively, it’s time to see how a more energy efficient unit can help!
You’re getting repairs done regularly
Seasonal maintenance and tune-ups are to be expected. Are you having to pay for multiple repairs on your heater in a relatively short period of time? Not only is that no fun, it’s rarely wise financially. It’s likely worth it to invest in a new heater that won’t incur frequent costs like your current one.
You see a blue flame on the burner
This is one is truly serious! A blue, instead of yellow flame, may indicate that your heater is producing carbon monoxide. To be on the safe side, leave your home immediately and contact an experienced HVAC professional to discuss.
Your heater is as old as Father Time
All machines and appliances have a lifespan and this includes your heater. There will come a time when trying to maintain an outdated, dying heater will cost you more over time than investing in updated, efficient technology. How long your heater will last will depend on its quality, technology, and the maintenance performed. Newer systems last longer but your average heater will last for over 15 years.
Your house sounds like it’s haunted
When you run your heater, what do you hear? If it sounds like popping, banging, or even rattling, your heater is likely on the way out. They tend to get a bit noisy as their lifespan runs out.
You feel cold air from the blower or the blower shuts off frequently
This is a tell-tale sign that the end is near.
