Heaters don’t last forever. We know that so many homeowners in our area don’t want to hear that, but it’s the truth. What this usually signifies is the slow descent into figuring out how to replace your heating system, which when working with amateurs or subpar service technicians, can be a nightmare fueled by many headaches.
We’d like to argue that when you’re working with a team that really cares, like ours, a heater replacement doesn’t have to be that bad! Options are more efficient and affordable than ever, and the right team with the right mindset can help you make the best decision. But first, we need to figure out if your system is on its way out, or what can be done about it.
Whether your system is still in good condition enough for repairs or neglecting heater maintenance in North Olmsted, OH has finally paid its price, let’s take a look at the status of your problematic system.
The Failing Furnace Dilemma
We mentioned heater maintenance earlier because it’s a surefire way to remain certain your system is in good condition. Or, the professional technician that provides the maintenance can tell you that your heater is reaching the end of its days and will need replacement soon. Either way, the best way to deal with a failing furnace is to catch it before it fails!
But if you’re reading this, you’re likely past that point, and you need our help determining if the system is failing. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why your furnace might need to be replaced.
The easiest way to tell if your heating system is on its way out is by determining how old it is. Furnaces are only supposed to last 15 years maximum, and boilers should only reach two decades tops. Any heating system that’s reaching the national drinking age will start developing expensive problems that could far outweigh the cost of a replacement. Take it from us, if your system is getting up there in age, give us a call and let’s talk about replacing it.
