5 Signs Your Heater Needs To Be Replaced

Sometimes, determining whether your HVAC system needs to be repaired or replaced can be difficult. If you’re not an expert, knowing if a repair is worth it can seem impossible. With companies trying to milk their customers out of every penny possible, it can be hard to separate another sales pitch from quality advice.

The professionals here at Blanco AC, Electrical & Plumbing strive to be different. When we do business, it’s our goal to gain a customer for a lifetime. We understand that that’s only possible by building a relationship of integrity and trust with every client we work for.

That’s why we want to provide you with this list of 5 signs your heater needs to be replaced — so that you can be more informed and feel that much more confident when you choose Blanco AC for all of your home service needs.

Your Furnace Is Old

Given proper maintenance and a little bit of luck, the average furnace lifespan is between 15 and 20 years. If your unit is any older than that, we suggest you upgrade to a more modern unit which could end up paying for itself due to increases in efficiency and lower repair requirements.

You Constantly Have To Pay For Repairs

At a certain point, the cost of having to constantly repair an old or failing furnace will far outweigh the cost of outright replacement. A professional can help you determine when it’s more cost-effective to invest in a heating replacement.

Inadequate/Uneven Heating

Older units can struggle to force air throughout the entire system, leading to areas of the building that are improperly or not heated at all. If you experience hot and cold spots in your home, it may be time to evaluate your heating system.

Visible Damage Or Rust

While some damage can be repaired, a certain level of outerwear and rust will require the system to be replaced entirely. One of our experts can pinpoint when deterioration has reached dangerous levels.

Increasing Utility Bills

A failing furnace may struggle to run optimally — which could lead to regularly high or increasing utility bills. When your heating system can’t perform like it used to, you’re guaranteed to pay more every month for less effective heating.

Prolonging replacement when it’s needed can directly result in lost money and winters that are colder than necessary. If you’re dealing with one or more of these issues, we highly suggest you contact one of the professionals here at Blanco AC to discuss your options today.

When Is The Best Time To Replace Your Furnace?

So, we’ve identified that a replacement may be required, now the next reasonable question would be to wonder about the best time to do it.

While it may seem counter-intuitive, by far the best time to replace your furnace is when it’s warm, during the spring and summer months. By doing this, not only will you go into winter fully prepared with new equipment that’s more than ready to handle the cold, but you’ll also get to enjoy potentially discounted equipment by purchasing it out of season when demand is low.
