Benefits of Replacing Your Heating System

Timely replacement of your heating system is always best, so as soon as you suspect the time is nearing, we recommend researching potential replacement options. The sooner you start, the longer you will have to make the best decision for your home, needs, budget, and desired comfort.

Replacing your heating system before failure occurs is essential for preserving your safety and comfort. And it’s a safe bet that the system will fail when you need it most, like on a cold day. If it is a frigid day, you may have to wait for a NATE-certified HVAC technician to arrive as they sort through the emergency service calls that typically increase the colder the weather.

Finally, early replacement will help protect your home and family from harm. While most heating system failures result in the unit not starting, others can create potentially life-threatening hazards, including fires, electrocution, and carbon monoxide poisoning.

Installation & Replacement FAQs

When is it better to replace or repair my heater?

The 50% rule is a convenient way to determine your best strategy. A replacement is best if your repair costs are 50% or more of a new unit price. Don’t forget to account for age, though. Most HVAC units have life spans of 15 to 30 years. If you’re nearing the end of that period, a repair might not be worth it.

What’s best: a heat pump, furnace, or boiler?

Every homeowner has their own HVAC priorities. Some are looking for cheap running costs, while others favor eco-friendliness. Still, others are looking for a unit that can cool their homes in summer and heat them in winter.

A heat pump is perfect for those who need to reduce their upfront costs, but a boiler will serve you better if you’re hoping to separate from the grid. If you’re opposed to heavy maintenance, a boiler will suit your preferences, but if you live in a particularly chilly climate, a furnace may be more reliable.
