It can be difficult for homeowners to know when a heater should be replaced. After all, why not continue to repair a heating unit as long as it can be fixed? Unfortunately, as heating systems age, they lose efficiency, which drives up utility costs. Even though a heater can be repaired, making repairs is not always the best option. Delaying replacement too long can result in higher heating bills, emergency breakdowns, and more.
Signs that it may be time to replace a heating system include:
- The heater is over 12 years old
- The heating system requires several repairs in a short time
- The thermostat requires constant adjustment
- The heating unit kicks on and off too frequently
- The cost of heating a home has suddenly risen
Additional issues such as strange noises, foul odors, yellow burner flames, constant operation, and poor indoor air quality are also signs of heater problems. When such issues arise, a professional diagnosis should be performed to determine whether the system can be repaired or if replacement is the better option.
One of the most important factors in heater installation is proper sizing. When a system is either undersized or oversized, its performance will be impacted in several ways. Units that are too small have longer run times and struggle to reach the desired temperature. Conversely, systems that are too large kick off too soon, leaving the space filled with too much humidity. In both instances, the heater will be forced to work harder than usual, which increases energy consumption.
