Are You Ready For a Heater Upgrade?

Your heater won’t last forever, that’s just a fact of life. The question is when do you need to upgrade that heater?

Handling your heating in Lino Lakes, MN can be tough but that’s what professional assistance is for. The experts on our team can help you every step of the way when you need to find a new system for your home.

But let’s start with the basics first. These are the warning signs that you will want to be on the alert for which will tell you it is time to reach out for a heater replacement.

4 Signs You Need a New Heating System

Not sure if your heater needs to be retired? Here are the warning signs that you should check for. If these sound familiar, give us a call to get your replacement taken care of quickly and easily.

  1. The heater is old. Most heating systems should last for 10 years at the minimum. Well-maintained systems can often last closer to 15 years before needing replacement. With all that said, if you have a heater that is between 10 to 15 years old and is starting to struggle to provide heat, it is likely time to get an upgrade.
  2. The heater needs constant repairs. Repairs are an inevitability but that doesn’t mean they should be frequent. At the most, you should encounter repairs needs once every three years. Beyond this, however, repairs that are more frequent (usually on a near-yearly basis) are going to be a warning that your system is wearing out.
  3. Repairs bills are too expensive. Have you gotten a repair bill that made you choke on your coffee? That big of a number isn’t something to ignore. It may be an indicator that your funds are better off being invested in a new system. Remember that if you multiply the cost of your last repair and the age of your heater and the result is over 5000, you should opt for a heater replacement instead.
  4. The system can’t provide heat reliably. When your heating system isn’t able to provide heat anymore or can only seem to create brief spurts of heat, it isn’t worth keeping around. Your system at this stage, especially if it has had regular maintenance and prompt repairs, is one that isn’t worth fighting with! Don’t waste your money–invest in a new system and save yourself some hassle.
