Should You Repair or Replace Your Broken Heater?

Deciding whether to repair or replace your broken heater can feel daunting, but it doesn't have to be. A good rule of thumb is to consider the age and condition of your heater. If it's nearing the end of its expected lifespan (usually around 15 to 20 years for most models), replacement might be the more cost-effective choice in the long run. Repairs can extend the life of your heater, but if you find yourself calling for service more than once a season, it could be time to invest in a new, more efficient system.

Additionally, compare the cost of repairs to the price of a new heater. If repair costs are more than 50% of the cost of a new system, it's generally wiser to replace it. Newer models are also likely to be more energy-efficient, saving you money on your utility bills each month. Ultimately, the decision should be based on what best meets your needs and budget. Our team is here to help guide you through your options, ensuring you make the best choice for your home's comfort and efficiency.

Are Different Types of Heaters Prone to Different Issues?

Different heaters are prone to various issues, reflecting their distinct mechanisms and operational methods. For instance, furnaces, which can operate on electricity, gas, or oil, often face problems like clogged filters, pilot light issues (in gas furnaces), and wear and tear of mechanical parts. These are pretty common but can be mitigated with regular maintenance and prompt repairs. On the other hand, heat pumps, celebrated for their energy efficiency, might experience difficulties with their refrigerant levels or the defrost cycle, especially during colder months when working to draw heat from the outside air. Central heaters tasked with warming your entire house might struggle with duct leakage, uneven heating across rooms, or thermostat malfunctions.
