Heating season is always kind of an odd time for Florida. It’s cooler, sure, but we’re not exactly digging ourselves out from snowbanks for a few months out of the year or anything. Still, you probably want to have at least some sort of heating situation in place in case you need it. That makes now the perfect time to install a new heating system. Read on to find out why.
Do You Need a New Heater?
No one likes to go through the hassle of installing a new heating system in their home. We get it. Still, no heating system is going to last forever. Sooner or later, you’re going to need to have a new one installed in your home. Not sure if your current heater is up to the task of getting you through another heating season? There are a number of ways to tell if it’s time to consider a new one:
- High monthly bills: If your heater is costing you way more to operate than it normally does, even if you aren’t using it more often than you normally do, that’s a pretty clear sign that it’s having issues. This often happens when the system is too worn down to continue operating with the efficiency that it once did.
- Constant repair needs: It’s not unusual for a heating system to break down every once in a while. If your heater is breaking down multiple times a year, though, then that’s a sign that it’s on its last legs. You should consult with a technician about installing a new one.
- Old age: Typically, you can expect a heater to last around 10-15 years before it starts to develop serious or chronic issues. Past that point, it will often become very costly to keep up and running the longer you insist on using it.
If your current heater fits the above list, it’s time to consult with a contractor you trust about installing a new one.
Why Install a New One Right Now?
Because the early bird gets the heater, that’s why. Right now, at the tail-end of summer, most people are still worried about staying cool. That’s all well and good, but you don’t want to wait to have your home prepared for heating season until right before it starts. Demand will be much higher the closer you get to heating season, which means more difficulty securing an appointment and possibly higher costs. Getting the whole thing taken care of early means you don’t need to worry about being without heat on colder days. While everyone else is scrambling to get their heating situation taken care of, you can just sit back and know that your new system will be there for you when you need it. That peace of mind is worth it, if nothing else.
