We’ve reached that time of the year where you’re finally turning on your heater again. This means that any lingering heating issues that you had from last year might be coming back to rear their ugly head. This is the time of year that you should ask yourself: “Is it time to get a new heater?”

We understand that this is a big question to ask yourself. It brings up a lot of other questions surrounding the cost, logistics, and timeline. You don’t have to worry about any of this when it comes to your heating installation in Broomfield, CO. We’re the ones who can help you when you’re trying to make the smooth transition from one heating system to another. Let’s discuss this below…

7 Signs That You Need a New Heater

If you think that you might need a new heater, then the signs are typically all there. Make sure you’re watching out for things like this.

1. Frequent Repair Needs

Have you started to notice that you need to repair your heater much more often than you’d like to? Frequent repair needs are the sign of a heating system that’s declining in quality. You need to make sure that you note problems like this and then make the effort to fix them. Getting yourself a new heater can solve a host of issues.

2. The Age of Your System

Heaters that are between 10 and 15 years of age are heaters that are going to need to be upgraded soon. We suggest that you start looking into this sooner than later. We can help you craft the game plan if need be. 

3. High Monthly Energy Bills

Your monthly energy bills should always be reasonable unless you’re doing something to make them skyrocket. If you’d notice a sharp increase in your bills with no clear cause, then we would suggest checking in with your efficiency. It’s probably dropped off exponentially and it could be worthwhile for you to get a new system.

4. Humidity Issues

Are you having humidity issues in your home? This might manifest as a damp presence throughout your entire home or dryness that persists throughout your space. If this is the case, then you’re going to need to balance your humidity with the help of our professionals.

5. Unusual Noises

You don’t want to hear sounds like banging, rattling, scraping, etc. Each sound you hear indicates an issue. We’ll help you pinpoint the main cause and work to get you a new system. 

6. Foul Odors

Foul odors are something that you never want to notice coming from a heater. This is because foul odors typically mean that your system has the potential to put your home in danger. We can help you identify the source of your foul odor.  

7. Visible Signs of Wear and Tear

Make sure that you don’t ignore any visible signs of wear and tear on your heater. This is why it’s worthwhile for you to actually lay eyes on the system from time to time. If you notice corrosion or other signs of decay, then we’d suggest that you consider getting yourself a new system.
