While replacing your heating system may not be the most exciting way to spend your money, it is an important step to take if your existing heater doesn’t have another season of service left in it. It is better to replace your system ahead of time than to wait for a catastrophic failure in the middle of winter’s coldest stretch. Here are a few factors to consider that should help you to decide if the time has come for a heating replacement in Trion, GA.
The Age of Your System
How old is your heater? Do you even know? If you inherited your heating system with your home, dig out any paperwork that may have been left behind. All heating systems have finite lifespans, as is the case with any mechanical system. Now, a well-maintained heater will often outlive its expected lifespan. If your heater is really getting up there, however, or is already beyond its expected lifespan, replacing it now can help you to avoid a breakdown when you need it most.
Your System’s Efficiency
We may not use our heaters quite as much as they do in the northeast around here, but that doesn’t mean that you should be content to pay a high price when you do need to heat your home. Over the years, any heater is going to lose some of its efficiency capability. Of course, you may also have a heater with a low efficiency rating to begin with. Whatever the case, you may want to upgrade your heating system to a more efficient model in order to boost energy savings over time.
Overall Performance Quality
Is your heater unreliable? Does it seem incapable of heating your home evenly throughout? Have you found yourself scheduling repairs the last few years in a row? You deserve better than this. That your heater still runs does not mean that it is worth keeping up and running. If you are unhappy with your system’s performance, or with any facet of its design, that is reason enough for a replacement!
