We have a couple more months before we really have to worry about cold weather. However, now is the time to make sure that your heating system is in order for the coming heating season. You don’t water your heater to fail on you in the middle of December, when you need it the most. So, take a look at these signs that you need to replace your heating system before winter.
As a heating system gets older, its ability to operate efficiently will naturally decline. As the efficiency declines, the system will be forced to stay on for a longer period of time to affect the same temperature changes. This will cause the system to cost more and more to operate. If your monthly heating bills are rising for no apparent reason, it may be that you have to replace your heating system.
The same wear and tear that causes the system to lose efficiency will eventually cause parts of it to start failing in large groups. All heating systems need repairs every once in a while, but if you need repairs every few months it’s time to install a new one.
The average heating system will last anywhere between 10 and 20 years. You can keep a heater operating past that point, if you are willing to spend the money on it. For most people, though, it is a far more cost effective solution to just replace a heater once it has reached a certain age. If your heater is past the two decade mark, you should talk to a professional about the possibility of installing a new one.
