“Should I Repair or Replace?”

Now that we’re at the tail end of fall and steadily moving into winter, you might reconsider your heating services. Heating care is something that becomes the focal point of your home during this time of year for good reason. If you want quality care, we’re the ones you can lean on to perfect your heating in Tucson, AZ.

The question that can become relevant during this time of year is: “Should I repair or replace my home’s heating system?” It’s a great question to ask. After all, you want to provide your home’s heater with the relevant service and we want to help you with this. Let’s help you decide your plan of action below. 

You Should Repair If…

These are a few signs that you need to have repairs for your home’s heating system. 

You Have High Heating Bills

High heating bills are the symptom of an inefficient heating system. Unless you’re doing something that would warrant a higher heating bill (like running your system more often), then your heating problem warrants a repair. 

Your Heater Doesn’t Work Well

If you’re not warm enough or you’re having trouble getting warm at home, then your heater doesn’t work well. The journey you take to get warm matters. You should be able to get warm with ease. If you can’t, then it’s definitely time to schedule an appointment with us. 

You Notice Strange Noises

Does your home get noisy when you turn on your heater? You shouldn’t have to choose between having a peaceful home and a warm home. If you’re struggling to get quality heating, then it’s probably time for you to replace your heater.

You Should Replace If…

You’re going to need to bump things up to a replacement if you relate to the following:

You’ve Had Your Heater for 10 Years or More

If you’ve had your home’s heater for about 10 to 15 years, then it’s time for you to start thinking about heating replacement. This is a statement that remains true no matter what the status of your heater is. It’s a wise decision to start thinking about replacement services because you’re going to have to replace your unit within the next five years; this is non-negotiable. Having a plan in place means you won’t be blindsided by this need.

You Have Frequent Repair Issues

Have you noticed that you need repair work more frequently than before? If you’ve noticed an uptick in repair needs in the last few years, then it means that you’re a good candidate for an upgrade. Spending more money on repair work is an inefficient practice. We’ll help you bridge this divide. 

Repairs Are Expensive

An uptick in repairs is a bad sign on its own and it’s even worse if the repairs are expensive. Your repairs should be reasonably priced. If your repair work starts nearing even a third of the price of a replacement need, then it’s time to schedule an appointment with our team members.
