It’s the middle of fall, which means one thing - it will be time to turn on your heater soon! But have you ever wondered if you need a new one? Perhaps you heard strange noises coming from your heater last winter, or maybe your house just isn’t as warm as it used to be. If you're unsure whether you need a new heater, keep reading! In this blog post, Hedrick's Service Now will discuss some signs that it might be time for a new heater. We'll also provide tips on choosing the right one for your home. Stay warm this winter!

Old Age

If your heater is over 15 years old, it might be time to replace it. Heaters this old are less efficient and likely to break down more often. Newer heaters are much more efficient than older models. This means they will cost less to operate, saving you money on your energy bills. Second, newer models are less likely to break down than older ones. This means you won't have to spend as much on repairs. Finally, the newer systems often have features that older ones don't, such as programmable thermostats and energy-saving modes.

Strange Noises

Strange noises are another sign that your heating system is not working properly. If you hear banging, popping, or hissing, it's time to call Hedrick's Service Now at (214) 509-6029. These sounds could indicate that there is something wrong with the internal components of your heater. If you ignore these strange noises, it could eventually lead to your heater breaking down completely. It's much better to catch the problem early and get it fixed before it becomes a bigger issue.

Your Home Isn’t As Comfortable As It Used To Be

If your home isn't as warm as it used to be, or if you find yourself constantly adjusting the thermostat, this could be another sign that your heater needs to be replaced. Older heaters often have trouble maintaining a consistent temperature. This can be frustrating and can also lead to higher energy bills. If the rooms in your house are heating unevenly and you know all of your vents are open, it’s best to rely on our team to inspect your system and offer our recommendation on whether or not you need a new system.

Frequent Repairs

How many times have you needed to call an HVAC company in the past two years to make repairs to your heater? If the answer is too many to count, then it might be time to replace your current system. Frequent repairs can cost just as much money as a replacement, if not more, and your money will go much further on a new model.

Visible Damage

If you've noticed any visible damage on your heater, it's time to start thinking about a new system. When heaters begin to show wear and tear, it can be a sign that they will not last much longer. One of the most common signs of visible damage on your heater is rust. Rust can happen for a number of reasons, but it's usually a sign that the metal components are starting to break down. If you see any rust on your heater, give us a call at (214) 509-6029.

Another common sign of visible damage is cracks in the housing. Cracks can happen for a number of reasons, but they're usually a sign that the unit is starting to break down. If you see any cracks, let Hedrick's Service Now know.
