Emergency Heater Replacement and Repair

Winter is upon us, and ready or not, that nasty winter weather is coming. You can do many things to prepare you and your home for freezing temperatures. You can insulate your pipes, stockpile food, and water, or bring firewood inside, but nothing is going to make you more comfortable than your home’s furnace.

Below we discuss what you can do to prevent or deal with emergency heater repair or replacement.

There’s nothing worse than a winter storm arriving on your doorstep only to have your heating system give out. When this happens, your options are limited to prevent further damage to your home. You’re forced to pay for a replacement or repair. More than likely, your heating system will show that it’s not functioning correctly.

Heating systems can present unique challenges. Common heating concerns or problems include:

  • Uncomfortable heat throughout the home
  • Thin, dry air, which can make breathing difficult
  • Uneven heating throughout the house
  • Cold air near the floor level
  • High heating bills
  • Difficulty finding the ideal heating temperature
  • A burning smell from the vents

How do you know when to replace your heating system?

The best time to replace your heating system when NOT in an emergency is when you replace your cooling system.  Cooling systems last about 10 to 15 years with proper maintenance, and furnaces don’t last much longer than that. It’s wise to replace both systems at the same time simply because they will last the same amount of time, and you won’t have to keep track of when your furnace should be replaced after the installation.

Additionally, brand new appliances mean you won’t have to deal with HVAC issues or repairs for a while. If you don’t install a new furnace with your air conditioning replacement, then you’d likely see an increase in problems with your furnace due to its age.

You’ll get the most out of your HVAC system if all units are up to date and perform at the same level of efficiency.

Save Money

Better performance from your HVAC systems means you save more money on your energy bill every month. Another benefit of replacing your furnace at the same time as your air conditioning is the money you’d save on installation costs. An installation for such a vital system can get expensive, especially if you wait to do one part of the installation much later.
