When considering heater replacement, an essential bit of information is how long the average heater lasts in the first place. In general, most major heating systems have a lifespan of between 15 and 20 years depending on use and quality of maintenance.
No one likes being caught off guard, especially regarding heater repairs and breakdowns. To help our customers and hopefully give them a sense of when they should start considering furnace replacement services, below are a few of the major symptoms of heater failure.
Probably the most apparent sign of heater failure, a heater that fails to heat the space it’s installed in might need to be replaced soon. Over time, a system’s efficiency will decline without any major issues. This is a symptom of age and is eventually unavoidable with any system.
Poor or bad airflow could be a sign of a failing blower motor or could be caused by the declining efficiency of an aging system. If you notice your heater starting to struggle to blow air, you should have it inspected by a professional.
Every month, your energy bills should remain pretty consistent with the most significant fluctuation being the transition from winter to summer. If you notice your utility bills rising and don’t have an obvious explanation it could be a sign of a failing system.
Any unusual smell coming from your system is noteworthy, mainly if you are using a system that utilizes gas. While a slight burning smell is typical when you first start using your heater – as dust accumulation burns off during the first few cycles of a furnace – strange smells can also be attributed to faults in your gas line and must be addressed immediately.
