Signs Your Heater Needs To Be Replaced
How do you know when it’s time to install a new heater rather than keep repairing your existing unit? Some signs to watch for include:
- The system needs multiple - or costly - repairs.
- Your utility bills continue to rise, despite not increasing your usage.
- You have a dangerous issue - like a cracked heat exchanger, which can lead to a carbon monoxide leak.
- Your home isn’t heating to the desired temperature.
Benefits of Installing a New Heater
While it can be a tough decision to replace your existing heater with a new model, the benefits will soon outweigh any hesitation you had. Some of the benefits of installing a new unit are:
- Lower utility bills from a more energy-efficient unit.
- Increased comfort in your home or building, as you can better control the temperature.
- Even heating throughout your property, eliminating hot and cold spots.
- Better indoor air quality as the new unit can properly remove any dust, dirt, and other debris from the air.

Common Heater Problems
It’s never ideal, but unfortunately, your heater may encounter issues from time to time that require professional repairs. Some common problems your unit might experience are:
- Uneven heating in your home. This can create hot and cold spots throughout the property.
- Your unit shuts down unexpectedly before reaching the desired temperature. This can be due to a failing pilot light, faulty wiring, or a malfunctioning thermostat.
- If your system takes too long to heat, and even turning up the thermostat doesn’t help, it can indicate leaky air ducts, a damaged fan motor, or problems with the belts and bearings.
