Keep the Heating System Like-New This Year!

A New Year Means It’s Time for Heater Installation 

When it comes to the heating system within a home, sometimes it can feel impossible to know when to have heater replacement done. The furnace lasts a long time, especially if the homeowner has it properly maintained every year, so when it is finally time for furnace replacement, it can catch the homeowner off guard a bit. Since it is a new year, it might also be the perfect time to have that done! Homeowners can call their trusted local heating company and have someone come take a look at their HVAC system to be sure, but there are common signs that every heater will present when it is about time for a replacement. 

Continue reading to learn more about what signs to look for and if replacement is necessary this year. 

Common Signs Heater Replacement Is Necessary 

A furnace isn’t something homeowners have to replace every year, so it tends to catch people a little off guard when the time comes. Almost every homeowner has a lot of questions, like what is the best heater to purchase and what size heater is right for their home. Of course, it is also helpful to know different signs that might show up when a replacement is necessary. 

If homeowners are aware of the signs, they might not be as taken aback when the day finally comes. 

Here are a few common signs to look for:

  • Repairs become frequent or even constant
  • The energy bill increases
  • The air quality is bad
  • There is uneven temperature throughout the home
  • The furnace is noisy
  • The furnace stays on all the time or doesn’t turn on when it’s supposed to 

Choosing the Right Heater water heater

Choosing a heater is a lot about preference and a little about size. Homeowners should purchase a furnace that is the proper size for their home’s energy needs, but this is something a professional can help homeowners figure out. Choosing the type of heating system is something the homeowner can usually pick out without the help of a professional as long as they have the proper information. 

Here are a few pros and cons of the different heating systems on the market today:

  • Forced air is relatively cheap to install but isn’t energy-efficient 
  • Hot-water radiators are quiet and energy-efficient, but they heat the home unevenly 
  • Wood stoves are cheap and sufficiently heat a home but can emit carbon monoxide into the home
  • Electric heating is safe and energy-efficient, but it is one of the most expensive heating systems

letters Maintenance On the New System Is Crucial 

The only thing better than regular heating maintenance is when a homeowner regularly maintains their heating system from the moment it is installed. Just because the system is new doesn’t mean maintenance isn’t necessary. If a homeowner doesn’t maintain the system, it often voids the warranty altogether. 

Having regular professional maintenance keeps the warranty active and ensures the system stays as healthy as possible for the entirety of its life.
