Consider Replacing Your Heater

Our long, hot summer is finally over in La Habra, CA, and we’re beginning to see the first signs of cooler weather. Now is the ideal time to make an assessment of your heating system and determine if the time has come to replace it. If it is, you should schedule a replacement now before the heating season starts in earnest. That will allow you to reap the full benefits of improved efficiency and similar upgrades to your system without having to rush in front of a cold spell or wasting weeks with an outdated model. On the other hand, if you think your system isn’t done yet and want to go through this season with it, then waiting until the spring may be the right call. Only you can make it, but if you’re considering replacing your heater, then here are a few tips to help you make up your mind.

Frequent Repairs

As your system ages, individual components will wear out and break down more often, and you will be called upon to make repairs more and more frequently. Sometimes, it can only be one repair, but one so expensive that it makes more sense to simply replace the whole thing. Either way, you end up throwing good money after bad, and need to make a change.

An Older System

A heater that is more than 10 years old may still be functioning quite well, especially if you keep it serviced and maintained on a regular basis. If it isn’t, however, and repair costs start adding up, its age could be the factor you need to pull the trigger on a replacement.

High Monthly Bills

High monthly bills are signs of a worn system, and if they’re stretching your budget to the breaking point, then a new system may be exactly what you need.
