5 Signs It’s Time To Replace Your Heater

December 29, 2022 | Blog

Are you a new homeowner looking to check the heater in the house you’ve just purchased? Or has life been so hectic that you’ve forgotten to schedule regular tune-up appointments for your furnace? Here at Channell Heating & Cooling, we don’t just do Hazlehurst heater installations! Our trustworthy technicians are experts when it comes to furnace repairs, check-ups, maintenance and replacements! We’re always happy to help you upgrade your heating system and can offer assistance if you’re having trouble with your AC unit as well.

Read on for ways to identify furnace issues before they wreck your system, or chat with one of our friendly staff members at any time!

Indications Your Furnace Is On The Verge Of A Breakdown

Interested in learning what to look for to prevent heater problems? Besides obvious signs, such as the age of your system or rising utility bills, your furnace may offer several hints through electrical malfunctions or parts needing to be repaired.

Electrical Malfunctions

Wiring issues usually manifest through problems powering up the device and rooms warming up inconsistently. Your appliance may be breaking down if it needs to be restarted often or does not circulate heat efficiently.

Parts Needing Repair

Repairs can range from simple fixes, like switching out a dirty filter, to more complex and expensive part replacements. Other examples of malfunctions include rust or cracks in or around the device, as well as humidity regulation problems.

If you’ve been having trouble breathing easily, or your furnace has been making loud noises while running, you may need to schedule an inspection to identify the issue.

Why Heater Replacements Are Essential

Nobody wants to enter into the winter season without a fully functioning furnace. When you replace your heating system, you can rest assured that you and your family have a better chance of staying warm and cozy when the temperatures plummet.

Some noticeable advantages of heater replacement include the following:

  • Lower monthly utility bills
  • Less money spent purchasing parts or on repair services
  • A warmer home
  • Comfort and peace of mind
  • Less risk of carbon monoxide build-up

Although the decision about what type of unit you need and the upfront cost of a new heater are intimidating, the long-term benefits outweigh the initial expenses.

When To Schedule A Professional Furnace Installation

Wondering how you’ll be able to tell when to make an appointment with us at Channell Heating & Cooling? Sometimes, the best course of action is to call a professional technician rather than try to repair your heater all by yourself.

Here are some signs that it’s time to replace your appliance:

  • Your furnace is more than 20 years old
  • You hear strange noises often, such as screeching or banging
  • Your furnace is emitting off-putting odors
  • Part replacements are a regular occurrence
  • Your device does not circulate enough heat for your family

Heater problems are not something you and your family should live with! If you notice any of the above issues, addressing the issue as soon as possible is always the best choice.

Very Thankful for Their Service

They installed our old system and took care if all maintenance since 1995. This year it finally needed replacing. They installed a quality Trane system and it’s been running efficiently ever since. Very thankful for their service.
