It’s tough to admit when it’s time to let go of some of your older possessions. Sometimes, you don’t want to give up an item for reasons of sentimental value, like a baby blanket or a handmade greeting card. But sometimes, it’s a matter of time and money. Many people do not consider letting go of older furnaces until they finally fail for good. But we think it’s a good idea to replace an aged furnace well before it runs out of juice.
The Problem with an Inefficient Heater
The main problem with waiting to replace an older heater is that it’s probably already costing you. If your heater is at least 10 years old, it may have some mechanical issues already that you have had to repair. The performance of your furnace probably doesn’t compare to the way it was when it was initially installed. And it’s likely running somewhat inefficiently, costing you more to operate year after year.
The Benefits of Upgrading
Upgrade an older, inefficient, struggling furnace before it breaks for good. This can benefit you in a number of ways:
- Less chance of a breakdown: With a brand new heating system in place, there is a much smaller chance that it will fail when you need it.
- Time to choose a quality furnace replacement: When a furnace breaks suddenly, you may choose to replace it with a low quality furnace that is readily available, just so you can restore heat to your home quickly. Replacing early on gives you a chance to select a high-efficiency modulating furnace instead.
- Lower cost of maintenance: The newer your heating system is, the less it should cost you in annual repair and maintenance. But this is only if you have a quality heating technician install the system properly and ensure correct operation.
