Do You Need a New Heater This Year?

We know, we know. It is still plenty warm out there at the moment, and even nighttime temperatures are not really going to start getting uncomfortably cold for at least a few more weeks. That is exactly why we are discussing this topic in this edition of our blog, though. The fact is that now is not a premature time to replace your heater. It is an ideal time to do so. After all, you don’t want to wait until you really need the heater to be pulling the old one out of your home, right?

Now, you obviously are not going to replace your home heating system just for the fun of it due to convenient timing. That is why we are here to help you determine if the time is actually right for a replacement to begin with. We’ll discuss a number of different factors to consider, and are happy to answer any questions that you may have regarding your heating replacement in Cypress, TX.

How Old Is Your Current Heater?

If there were a heater out there that would last forever, we’d be the first to tell you about it. It would be a major revolution in the industry. Fact is, though, that there is no existing heater that can make that claim. No matter how well-made, no matter how innovative the manufacturer, all heaters are going to have a finite lifespan.

The trick to a successful heating replacement is to have that lifespan in mind, and to use that information to help you replace your heater before it breaks down entirely. We completely understand that you do not want to waste your money replacing a heater that is not all that old, and we are happy to repair your heater for you. There will come a time when you must way the return of repairing a heater that is not only malfunctioning, but which is also very old. If you don’t want to sink any more money into your heater, or if you just think it’s time to call it a day on your current system, let us know.

Is It the Heater of Your Choosing?

Some of us buy a new house, and simply stick with the heating system that we’ve inherited. If it’s still working fine and is already installed, it may seem unnecessary to make any changes. However, we also think that you should have the heater that you want in your home, not just the one that was there when you showed up to the party.

Maybe you want to swap out a furnace for a more efficient heat pump that will also allow you to cool your home with the same system. Maybe you’ve got a heat pump, but what you really want is a ductless mini split system that further boosts efficiency and can help to protect air quality. Whatever the case, upgrading your system to get the heater that you really want is a completely reasonable step to take.
