How to Know When It’s Time to Replace Your Home Heating System

Posted in: Uncategorized by

When you make a significant investment, whether it is purchasing a new car or equipping your home with a new heating system, you want to make sure you do everything you can to protect it. The best way to do that is having a professional take a look and inspect if any repairs need to be made.


Here at Thermo Direct, Inc., our trained and certified HVAC technicians are ready to diagnose any issues that are troubling your home heating system. Our technicians have the field knowledge that is needed to assess a heating unit and determine if a replacement is necessary.


Are you unsure if it’s time to replace your heating system? Here are some telltale signs that you will need to invest in a new one. 


Constant Need for Repairs


If you find that you are constantly calling us to schedule another heater repair appointment, it may be time to consider replacing your heater. When you think about how much you’ve spent on repairs to keep your old heater running, it can be cost-effective to have a new heating system installed.




Typically, a furnace and boiler have a lifespan of about 15 years. After your heater reaches this age, it may continue to operate but not provide the same comfort levels that you are used to. If your heater is up there in age and is not as efficient as it once was, the most economical option is to consider replacing and installing a new heating system.


Loud Noises and Strange Smells


It’s not uncommon that when you first turn on your heater during the start of the cold winter months, that you notice a funny smelling odor that lingers briefly. Usually, this odor will dissipate, and your equipment will run smoothly. However, if you begin to notice that not only does the odor remain but your equipment is also operating louder than usual, it could be a sign that it’s time to replace your heater.
