Is it Time? How to Tell You Need a Heating Replacement
Depending on the system you own, you might be experiencing different signs that you need a heating replacement:
Boilers – You might need a new boiler if yours is over 10-15 years old, it is springing leaks or you hear a lot of gurgling noises.
Furnaces – A furnace can last a little bit longer than a boiler or heat pump. A unit over about 15-20 years is a good candidate for a replacement.
Note: Many old furnaces and boilers have carbon monoxide issues, so it can be a safety hazard to leave one too long.
Heat Pump – A heat pump should be very energy efficient, so if it has been steadily increasing your energy bill and is over 10-15 years old, you might want to look into upgrading to a new one.
All older systems will cause a rise in energy bills. And it is usually a pretty good sign that you need a replacement for all units if you have had frequent repairs lately. Short cycling, which means the unit is switching on and off frequently, is another common sign.
