Signs You Might Need a New Heater
A lot of homeowners cross their fingers in hopes that their heater or heat pump can be repaired. Even a few hundred dollars for a repair is much easier to come up with than thousands for a total system replacement. But wishes don’t always come true. There comes a time in every HVAC system’s life when repairing it is no longer feasible or economical. This can be due to low parts availability, rust, or general system degradement. If you notice any of the following symptoms of a heater on its last leg, it might be time to start saving for a new heater:
- Old age: Like cars, all heating systems degrade with time. While regular maintenance can extend the lifespan of your unit, it can’t do so indefinitely. If your unit was made more than 10-15 years ago, most HVAC experts will recommend replacing it.
- Frequent Repairs: Are you now on a first-name basis with our HVAC technician? Have you called them out more than once or twice this season? Well, it might be a sign that a major repair (and likely replacement) is incoming. In many cases, it’s better to proactively replace the unit during a slower time of year than to wait for that last domino to fall. In more temperate times, rebates and special heating system discounts are often available.
- High Energy Bills: As your heater ages, it may use more energy to achieve the same level of comfort. Over time, you’ll see this reflected in your monthly utility bills.
Fortunately, no matter the size or scope of the problem, Boyers can handle your heater repair or replacement. For prompt heating service in Staunton, Charlottesville, or Waynesboro, give (540) 949-7639 a jingle.
How to Ensure You Get the Best Heater for Your Home
After you’ve decided to replace your old heating system, it’s time to consider what you want to replace it with. When estimating the total cost of installing a new system, you’ll need to take the following into account:
- Energy Efficiency: Everyone knows using less energy and saving money is smart. Do you mind paying more upfront for a unit that saves you money over the long term? For people looking to save, we suggest installing a unit with an AFUE of above 90. The higher the energy efficiency, the less sting you'll experience in your heating bills.
- Sizing: How large or how small is your home? This can have a huge impact on the cost of a new heater as well as how efficiently it runs. And, honestly, that makes sense. Heating a home with two or three stories takes a lot more power than a ranch-style house. While some homeowners think bigger is better, that’s not the case when it comes to HVAC. A unit that’s oversized often short cycles, which leads to loss of efficiency and puts more wear on parts. It’s sort of the same effect as highway versus city driving.
- Fuel Source: The type of fuel your home uses can also impact the cost of your new heater. Electric heating units are the most affordable but also tend to be the most expensive to run. Gas heaters are cheaper and cleaner running than oil.
