New Year, New Heater?


Out with the old and in with the new!

It’s a common phrase we’ve all heard, but one that will make you hesitate when it comes to your heater. Do you really need a new heater? Can’t you get by for a bit longer with ol’ trusty and sort-of-rusty? For starters, if you have a furnace that has rust on it, you definitely need a new system! But beyond that there are other indicators to watch for that will let you know the time has come.

Check out the indicators listed here that now is a great time to invest in a new heating system. And, when you are ready, reach out to us for your replacement heating services in Warner Robins, GA.

4 Signs That Your Heater Needs to Retire

Okay, so we established that if you have a furnace that is rusted, it definitely needs to be replaced. But, aside from this, what are the other signs you need to invest in a new heating unit?

  1. It is too old. Your heater isn’t made to last too far beyond the 10 to 15-year range. It is possible for the system to last longer than this, but its effectiveness and efficiency will only go down. What’s more, even if your heater seems to be working well, it won’t be able to compare to the efficiency of a newer unit.
  2. It can’t produce heat well. Have you noticed that your heater is struggling to do its job lately? Maybe it takes longer than usual to heat up your home. Or perhaps it is barely able to create warmth at all. If this sounds familiar, it is likely that your heater is on its last leg.
  3. It costs too much to run. How much are your energy bills? Are they what you’d expect? Or have they been increasing and won’t go back down no matter what you do? High energy bills that aren’t addressed by maintenance or repairs are likely indicators of a heater that should be replaced.
  4. It needs too many repairs. Repairs shouldn’t be a regular occurrence. While we are here to help when you need us, we want you to know that repairs should only be needed every few years. Repairs that are popping up each year are a sign of a heating system in trouble.

Do any of these warning signs sound familiar to you? If you have a young heater that doesn’t need much attention to do a good job, you’re probably in the clear. But if your heater is getting on in years, barely functions, and is just getting more and more costly, then you are going to want to consider trading it out for a new unit.

Whether you need repairs or a system replacement, our team is ready and able to get the job done for you. With Premier Heating & Air you can always expect unparalleled service, competitive prices, and overall value.
