We often encourage people to replace their heating systems before they actually break down for good. But this suggestion is met with some skepticism. Homeowners wonder, “Why would I spend the money to get a new system if my older one is already working?” We understand that you don’t want to spend money unnecessarily. But if you have an older heating system that doesn’t keep you warm very effectively, you’re probably already paying more than you should.
How an Older Heater Can Cost You
Your older heating system has a lot of wear and tear that makes it more difficult for it to run with each cycle. Some of the components might have to work extra hard to move properly, and this means that they require more energy to run than newer systems. More than likely, your energy and fuel costs reflect the fact that your older heating system just isn’t cutting it any longer.
In addition, you might need a number of emergency repairs for your heater if you keep it around for too long. Any problems can force you to call in a professional for emergency repairs, meaning you may have to pay overtime fees and pay the cost of labor and repairs for a system you’ll only have to replace completely soon enough anyway.
Why Schedule Replacement before Summer
Replacing a faulty heating system is something you don’t want to wait too long for. You cannot predict when your heating system could wear out completely and break down, and you don’t want to get stuck dealing with a heater breakdown in the middle of the summer. You’d have to go without heat while you waited for a new system. In the end, it could end up costing more to replace a completely non-functional system than to replace one that is still working, if inefficiently.
