Replacing any major component of your home can be a daunting task — and for most people, a heater definitely counts as major.
When the time comes and your current heater can no longer handle the task of keeping you cozy through the Buda winter, the team here at Summit Air Conditioning & Heating is here to replace your old system, set you up with a new one and give you access to the resources to keep it running for years to come.
The average heating system has a lifespan between 15-20 years. The exact number a homeowner can expect depends on a number of factors which include:
By far the most influence homeowners have over the lifespan of their system is with the quality and frequency of maintenance. We recommend that every heater be inspected by a professional once a year.
When it comes to maintenance, we’ll put just as much care into that as we do your heater repairs. Be sure to ask us about our affordable and comprehensive maintenance programs for the best chances possible of getting the most out of your heater.
HVAC systems are some of the largest energy-consuming appliances in modern homes and account for a large percentage of your utility bill.
On a month-to-month basis, your utility bills should remain fairly consistent and only change notably with the seasons. If you notice any sudden spikes in how much you’re paying, it could be a sign of a failing system that needs to be replaced.
While it’s impossible to avoid repairs entirely, for a well-functioning system, needing repairs should be a rarity.
As your system ages and its overall condition declines, repairs will become more frequent. At a certain point, the cost of repairs will hit a point of diminishing returns and the cost of complete replacement will make more financial sense in the long run.
When the repairs become too much and you find yourself needing the best Buda heater installation around, the team at Summit has you covered and will put an end to your frequent repairs in no time.
Just like repairs become more frequent as your system ages, its overall performance will decline, even when no obvious repairs are needed.
If you find yourself grabbing extra blankets because your heater just isn’t getting the job done, it might be time to start considering heater replacement services in Buda.
While no HVAC system is entirely silent, if you notice any noises other than the regular hum of operation, it’s a sign that you should have your system inspected by a professional.
Faulty ignition systems can cause loud bangs that are actually a sign of excessive amounts of gas being allowed to build up and combust. If you hear bangs, whistling or slamming noises, reach out to our team right away.
Between poor ignition systems and dirty ductwork, there’s a lot of opportunity for an old heating system to contaminate the air inside your home.
Many of the issues that impact indoor air quality can generally be addressed individually. However, older systems can deteriorate to the point where trying to eliminate their contribution to poor indoor air quality is an uphill battle.
If you feel like you’re dealing with any one or a combination of the above issues and think it might be time to start looking for a quality furnace replacement company, look no further than the team here at Summit Air Conditioning & Heating!
