How long a ductless heating system lives is dependent on a number of different factors, like location, repairs, maintenance, and sheer dumb luck. If you schedule annual maintenance for your system, and call for repairs as soon as you notice a problem, your system has a much better chance of living a long life. Nothing lasts forever, though. Sooner or later, you will need to replace your ductless heating system. Read on to find out more about the signs that you need a new ductless heating system.
Efficiency Goes Down
The longer you use a system, any system, the more it is going to wear down. The longer it wears down, the less effective it will be at performing its job. The same is true for ductless heating systems. A very old ductless system will not be as efficient at heating as a new one. As the old heating system struggles to maintain proper temperature, it will stay on for longer and longer periods of time. This will lead to ever-increasing heating bills. If your heating bills are going up for no apparent reason, you might need to replace the system.
All heating systems need repairs every once in a while, but they tend to be rare and spread out. Older heating systems have much more wear and tear on them, though, making it more likely for different parts to start failing in groups. If you need to have your ductless heating system repaired every few months, then you should replace it. It’s far cheaper to replace the entire system than to have to replace it one part at a time.
