Is It Time to Upgrade Your Heater?

Monday, February 11th, 2019 at 11:00 am

technician-servicing-a-hot-water-heaterThere comes a time in the lifespan of every heater where you’ll need to upgrade your system. So many homeowners fight this process and instead they’ll repair their current heating system endlessly before opting to allocate their money toward a new heater. Don’t let this be the route you go down. It’s always more beneficial to upgrade your heater because running an old heater is energy inefficient.

We know how hard it is to go through the process of an upgrade—it’s expensive, time-consuming, and there’s a big learning curve. We won’t leave you hanging! We’re here to help you through the entire process. If you’re ready for a furnace upgrade, contact our team for the best HVAC services in Hanford, CA.

Watch for These Signs

If you’re not completely sure if it’s time for you to upgrade your heating system, then make sure that you watch for these signs. If you’re experiencing a combination of these problems or even one persistent problem, you need to call our team sooner than later. Ignoring the signs that it’s time to upgrade your heater only leads to breakdowns, so look for these indications of an impending upgrade.

Frequent Repairs

How often do you need your heater repaired? You shouldn’t need repair services for your heating system more than once every few years. If you find yourself having to call a technician more often than this then it’s time to put yourself on the market for a new heating system. You might think you’re saving yourself money, but we can assure you that these services really add up over time. It’s a much wiser decision for the quality of your heating and the dollar amount in your wallet to repair your heater.

Higher Heating Bills

Another money-draining problem alongside frequent repair services are sky high heating bills. If you’ve noticed that your heating bill is far too high during these winter months, then you should definitely consider buying a new heater for your home. High heating bills are a result of heater inefficiency—even if you think you can handle the high heating bills for a while, the inefficiency of your system will wear down your heating system.

Ineffective Heating

People probably scoff at the phrase “California winter,” but residents across Kings, Tulare, and Fresno counties know just how cold it gets here. Sure, deserts get hot during summer, but they also get cold during winter and at night. If you’re having trouble getting your home warm and keeping it warm, make sure you contact a professional.

Your Heater is Old

How old is your heater? If you’ve had your heater for a decade or more then it’s time for you to start thinking about replacing your heater. All good things have to come to an end after all. Even if you’re not currently experiencing any problems with your heating system, it’s a wise idea to have a backup heating unit in mind. We can offer assistance, too. We pair our quality service with the best brands, including Trane and Coleman.

If you need to upgrade your heater then make sure that you contact our team here at Shaw’s Air Conditioning & Heating.
