Everyone wants their heating systems to last forever. After going through all the hassle of researching available heating systems, selecting one that fits your needs, finding a contractor, tearing out your old heating system, and installing a new one, it’s no wonder that you don’t want to repeat the process ever again.
Unfortunately, no matter how well-constructed or well-maintained your heating system is, you will eventually have to replace it. When will that time arrive, though? Well, there’s no way to pinpoint exactly when your heating system will reach the end of its life. However, there are signs that will indicate that it is getting close. Read on for a list of signs that indicate it’s time for a new heating installation.
Increase in Heating Bills
As your heating system gets older, it will slowly accumulate wear and tear on the parts inside it. This causes your heater to slowly lose efficiency over the years. Eventually, this wear and tear will become severe enough that the efficiency loss will be reflected in your monthly heating bills. If you start to notice your monthly bills rising consistently over the course of a few months, it’s a sign that the wear and tear on your system has reached significant levels. There’s nothing you can do to repair parts that are that worn out, so it’s better to replace the system.
Rise in Repairs
Another symptom of advanced wear on your heating system is an increase in repair needs. A part that gets that worn out will eventually break and require replacement. As each part accumulates wear and tear at a slightly different rate, this will cause parts to start failing in rapid succession. If your heating system starts requiring repairs every few months instead of once or twice a year, it means that most of the parts inside it are worn out. You could just replace every part inside the system, but that would almost certainly end up being more expensive than getting an entirely new system.
