Signs Your Heater Needs to be Repaired or Replaced
Nothing is worse than your heating system failing you in the middle of
winter. Without a properly working heating unit, your home can quickly
become a winter wonderland and we’re not talking about the aesthetics.
This is why it’s essential that heater issues get resolved quickly
and correctly, so you will never have to worry about being in the cold
in the comfort of your own home.
Some of the most common signs that your heating system needs repair or
HIGH UTILITY BILL: One of the most apparent signs that your heating system isn’t operating
efficiently or properly is if you notice that your utility bills continue
to increase without any change in usage. When components inside of our
heating system need repairs, our units aren’t able to operate at
their full level of efficiency.
UNPLEASANT SOUNDS: Another obvious indication that something is wrong with your unit is the
emitting of strange, unpleasant sounds generating from your unit. This
could mean that there are loose or damaged components within your system
that need repairs or to be replaced.
OLD AGE: Most heating systems have a lifespan between 15 to 20 years with proper
maintenance. When your heater surpasses its 20-year mark, it’s definitely
time to look for an upgrade.
CONSTANT REPAIRS: One of the most apparent signs that your heater needs to be replaced is
the need for frequent repairs. When you find yourself needing to call
a heating repair company every other month, this lets you know that your
unit has outlived its usefulness and it’s time for an upgrade.
BROKEN THERMOSTAT: When your heater’s thermostat no longer works properly, this can
affect the efficiency of your heating unit. For example, if the temperature
shows that it’s colder than it actually is, this may cause your
heater to activate when it doesn’t need to or vice versa.
If any of these sound familiar, give us a call and ask about our heater
repair and replacement services! Our Bryant heating systems are the best

Benefits of Routine Furnace Maintenance
Just like with any HVAC system, the key to getting the most out of your
heater is with proper, routine maintenance. During a professional maintenance
service, our technicians will check all of the components of your heater
to ensure that it is running efficiently and there are no risks of future
problems such as a leak. Ongoing maintenance is extremely recommended,
at least once a year and preferably before the winter begins.
Some of the benefits of ongoing heating maintenance include:
- Reduced energy bills
- Elimination of frequent repairs
- Improved indoor air quality
- Enhanced airflow
- Extended lifespan of the unit
