Install a New Heater This Year!

Heaters are important for homes located in cold regions! As the winter season continues to drop in temperature, revealing snow and ice, heaters are a great addition to a home. This year, homeowners should install a new heater!

When Should Heaters Be Replaced?

Sadly, heaters don't last forever. After a few years and use, heaters begin to fall apart. However, there are some ways homeowners can notice the signs. 

Homeowners should replace heaters using heater replacement services. If there are large leaks or cracks in the heaters, it is time to either replace the heater or contact a heater repair technician. However, homeowners can't repair heaters because of how expensive they are most of the time.

Another sign is if the heat in a home no longer works. If a homeowner is struggling to heat their home, it may be a problem with their heater system. However, the only way to know is to call a heating company to ask for advice. Sometimes, it is a small fix with the thermostat, but it needs to be replaced if it no longer works.

How to Choose the Right Heaterpros cons

With so many choices, it is hard to choose the right heater! Homeowners should start by researching the types of heaters that exist along with the pros and cons of each system.

The most common and popular heating system is a furnace. The furnace works by pushing hot air throughout a home that has ducts to travel with. The ducts are placed in each room, and the system is powered by electricity. Furnaces used to be powered by coal and fire but have changed drastically.

There are also boilers. Instead of using only electricity, boilers use water and heat to create steam, and the steam then travels and brings heat throughout a home. Boilers are rare in the South and mainly found in Northern cold states that need more heat.

Another heater option is heat pumps. These heat pumps do not use ducts to travel around. Instead, the pumps create heat with electricity. The pumps find cool and warm air that is located outside and push it into a home. This uses the least amount of energy but is harder to repair.

Always Maintain New Heater Systems

To decrease the chances of a furnace replacement, homeowners should maintain their new heater systems. All systems require some form of maintenance, or it can be dangerous. During the cold months, having a heat source is important, especially if there is the possibility of a storm.

Not only is it dangerous because the new heater may not work, but because without cleaning and maintenance, dust, dirt, mold, and bugs can get stuck in the filter. The things in the filter get blown back into the air, which can make people feel very sick.
