Is It Time for a New Heater?
As heater ages, it will begin to show signs that will let you know it’s time to have your heater replaced. If you’re not sure whether or not you need heating installation, check out the following symptoms of an aging or failing heater, and decide for yourself if it’s time to install a new heater.
Call Paul the Plumber today and ask about heater installation if:
- Your heater is not running as efficiently as it used to.
- The unit is more than 15 years old and requires excessive repairs.
- Utility bills have increased over the last few months without change in your energy use.
- Your heater requires multiple expensive repairs.
- The heat exchanger is cracked. This is a critical issue that requires the heater to be replaced. A cracked heat exchanger can cause a carbon monoxide leak which can be deadly.
- Your home is not being sufficiently heated.
At Paul the Plumber, we know that making a decision about a new heater can be a difficult and stressful process. There are many different options, and the size of the home and budget are important considerations as well. Our professionals are experts in helping homeowners to choose the right heater for their home and installing the unit quickly and efficiently.
Benefits of Installing a New Unit
Installing a new unit in your home can improve your quality of life as well as save you money. New units can run quieter, work faster, and be more efficient. Here are a few of the benefits you will notice after installing a new heater:
Each year that passes also brings more developments in technology that greatly improve the heating and cooling industry. Many of the units on the market today work better and use far less energy than their older counterparts. When investing in a new system, you will be saving money on utilities and benefitting the environment as well.
Healthier Indoor Air
Old ductwork, dusty heaters, and a buildup of bacteria and other pollutants can cause the air inside the home to be worse than the air outside. Poor indoor air quality can lead to illness, asthma, allergies, and breathing problems. Getting a fresh start by installing a brand new system can bring vast improvement to the health of your family.
Older systems have to work twice as hard to produce the same amount of heat as newer systems. As utility bills creep up, you may find yourself putting on a few extra layers and huddling under a blanket to stay warm to try to save on energy. With a new system, you will be able to be comfortable even on the coldest of days without having to worry about exorbitant heating bills.
Even Heating Distribution
Problems with the heater, ductwork, or other components can cause certain rooms in the house to be colder than others. This can be a problem when you are trying to maintain the comfort of everyone in the household. At Paul the Plumber, we know how to install your heating unit so that each room in the house is evenly heated, avoiding hot and cold spots.
Choosing the Best Heater
Choosing the best heater for your home can be overwhelming, but we are here to help. At Paul the Plumber, we can help to inform you about the options and find which one fits your situation the best. Here are your options when it comes to heating:
A heat pump is a heater and a cooler all in one. It uses the same technology to pump out cold air during the warm months and hot air during the colder months. The unit transfers heat outside or inside depending on the weather. It may be used in conjunction with a gas furnace in colder climates such as Derry. On frigid days, the heat pump will turn off, letting the gas furnace take over.
Instead of using air, a boiler uses water to heat the home. Cool water goes into the system where it is turned into hot steam. The steam then moves through pipes to heat the home before cooling off and returning to the boiler. These systems are also used to heat water for the tub or sinks.
Furnaces run off either gas or electricity. Rather than heating water, the furnace heats air and then pumps it into the home. Furnaces are a popular choice for many due to their affordability and fast heating time.
A hybrid heating system works by running two different systems together. Typically this will be a gas or oil furnace as well as a heat pump. With a hybrid system, you can switch between the two, using the one that is most cost-efficient at the time. The system can also be programmed to automatically choose the source that is the most energy-efficient.
When choosing a heating system, there are several factors that you should consider. One of your first considerations should be its cost. Keep in mind that this does not simply mean the initial cost, but also what the system will cost you down the road as well. Some systems are more expensive to install, but are extremely efficient and will cost hundreds less per year in utility costs.
The size of the home is another factor. Some heating systems work better in large homes, while smaller homes may benefit from having a different heating system. Our Paul the Plumber professionals can help you choose which system will best heat your home.
