The Checklist

We make the extra effort to understand our customers, so we’ve come to understand that sometimes it’s hard for homeowners to know if they’re ready to upgrade their heater. We’ve compiled a quick checklist below for you to reference.

If you find yourself checking off any of these items then it’s probably time for you to ditch your old heater and invest in a new one.

  • Your Heater Has Odd Run Times: You might read this phrase and ask yourself, “well what’s ‘odd?’” Odd is a phrase that could describe short cycling or excessively long run times. “Short cycling” is a term used to describe your heater running for very short cycles on and off. Your heater running for excessively long amounts of time is a big problem as well. Either way, this type of occurrence is really hard on your heater. It’s likely that this type of function will shorten the lifespan of your heater and raise the price of your heating bills.
  • Your Heater Costs Too Much to Run: Do you ever go without heat because you’re afraid of what your bill will look like at the end of the month if you run your heater? You shouldn’t have to skip out on warmth for the sake of your wallet! You can have it all when you have a great heater in your home. Sure, heater upgrades can get pretty pricey, but this price tag is more worthwhile than funneling money into an inefficient heater.
  • You’ve Had Your Heater for More Than 15 Years: Age matters when it comes to your heater. A heater over the age of 15 will have to be replaced. Even if you think there’s nothing wrong with your heater, a heater over the age of 15 is a red flag. Your heater can’t last forever. Every single model has a shelf life. Even if you can make your heater stretch closer to that 20-year mark it’s better to be prepared and replace it when it’s convenient rather than scrambling after your current heater breaks down.
