Should I Replace My Heater?

Technician working on a furnaceAs you can see from the title of this post, we’re diving right into it this time around. To replace or not to replace, that is—well, it’s something that most homeowners have wondered before. A new heating system represents a pretty considerable investment, and we completely understand that most homeowners are going to try and get the longest lifespan possible out of every system that they purchase. The fact of the matter is that you don’t want to wait for your system to break down entirely before replacing it, though.

So when is too soon? When is it not soon enough? What are some acceptable reasons for replacing a heater, to begin with? These are tough questions, and there is no single answer that we can give which will be satisfactory to everyone. What we can do, however, is help you to understand some factors that you should definitely take into consideration if you’re thinking about replacing your heater. Read on, and be sure to contact our team if you think it may be time for a heating replacement in Atlanta, GA.


Is your heater really starting to get on in years? Even if it is still running pretty reliably, that itself may be reason enough to seriously consider replacing it. You see, while the age itself may not be a problem if your heater is still dependable, there is a lot of baggage that can come with age—like heaters, like people!

Your heater may actually have been manufactured long enough ago that it pales in comparison to more modern systems when it comes to efficiency. The system may also be running okay for now, but by the time the next heating system rolls around, you may be rolling the dice by keeping it running. Let us replace your aging heater with a new one for peace of mind.


As mentioned above, your system may be old enough to have a relatively low-efficiency rating that was considered decent at the time of its making. However, it is also possible that your very old system has lost efficiency capabilities over time, or even that you cut costs by cutting efficiency at the time of purchase.

There is no reason why you should be living uncomfortably in your home in this day and age, but there is also no reason why you should be overpaying to live comfortably. You can count on us to help you balance cost with efficiency if you are ready to invest in a new home heating system.


You shouldn’t be paying too much to run your heater due to low-efficiency levels, but you also shouldn’t be paying too much to keep your heater up and running due to unreliable performance. When you find yourself scheduling repairs more and more frequently, it definitely might be time to opt for a replacement rather than repairs.

You shouldn’t really need repairs every heating season, let alone multiple times in any one heating season. If you do, give us a call. You deserve better, and we’ll help you get it.
