Key Signs You Should Upgrade Your Heater

Here are a few signs that your home’s heater could use an upgrade. 

Your Heater Is 10–15 Years or Older

If your heater is in between the ages of 10 and 15, it’s a good idea to start thinking about an upgrade now. Preparing for your upgrade is always best because it’s going to eliminate potential misfires and upsets with your system. The last thing you want to do is wait for disaster to strike. Once your heater reaches a certain age, it’s important to think about other models you might want to consider. It’s also a great option just to upgrade to a newer version of your current model. 

You’re Not Warm Enough

If you have a working heater in your home, then you should expect to be warm. If you can’t expect this or you struggle to get warm or stay warm, then it’s time to consider other avenues. A new heater can make things much easier and even save you money.

You’re Repairing Frequently

Are you repairing your home’s heater much more often than you’re used to? If you’re running into repair work, this should only happen once every few years. Anything more means that your heater has declined in efficiency and should likely be replaced. 

Your Heaters Cost You Too Much

Have you noticed that your heater costs you too much every month? High energy bills shouldn’t be something you have to deal with in your home. If you notice that they peak every time the winter season rolls around, then it’s time to figure out practices that can lower them. An upgrade is an easy way to do this. 

You Notice a Lot of Dust

Have you noticed that there’s a lot of dust floating around your home lately? This isn’t just something that you should chalk up to an annoying issue that can be worked around. Instead, you should note this issue and have one of our professionals find the source. A lot of time, an uptick in dust in your home is a sign of furnace dysfunction.
