There will come a time in every homeowner’s life when they must replace the current heating unit in their home. Sometimes, this is a surprise revelation as they may have had no idea their heating unit had deteriorated enough to require a complete replacement.

We always consult our customers on things such as budget, heating requirements, and other factors so we can help them choose the best heating system for their home.
How Do I Know if I Need a Heater Replacement?
Even the most well-maintained heater will eventually need a replacement. It could be hard to determine when you will need to do this, especially if your heater has needed few repairs throughout its lifespan.
Some key factors that go into determining the need for a replacement are:
- The unit is past warranty: the majority of heating system warranties last around 10 years and require annual maintenance to stay valid. If your unit is older than 10 to 20 years and past its warranty, a replacement is a good option.
- How much the repair will cost: A good indication of replacement is if a heater repair will cost more than a complete installation. For example, a new unit costs around $5,000 and if the repair costs total around $2,500 or more, a complete replacement may be the better route.
- Monthly utility bills have increased: Depending on the time of year, heating and cooling bills will fluctuate up and down. However, if your heating bill is far exceeding what it usually costs for the winter months, it could indicate there is something wrong with your heater and it is time for a replacement.
There are many factors that go into determining the right size heating unit for your home. While this fact may seem daunting, our Victorville professionals can be by your side through this process to help you find the best fit. We consider factors such as family size, insulation, the number of doors and windows in your home, and more to determine what will work with your needs.
