Heater Replacement in South Carolina
Furnaces are a key component of our home, but they last so long that it is easy to forget that they need service. And, it is just as easy to forget that they are machines that will eventually need replacing.
Custom Comfort provides excellent heater replacement services to make sure that, in the event of failure, your home heating doesn’t miss a beat.
When Do I Need to Replace My Furnace?
The short answer is “when it doesn’t work anymore”. Furnaces get old, but that doesn’t mean that they are easily replaceable. Often, regular maintenance and repairs can keep a furnace operating for decades and are much less costly than replacement.
However, average furnace length is typically around 18-20 years depending on how often it is used and if it is regularly serviced. Some signs that you may need to replace your furnace are:
- The unit has started making rattling or grinding noises when it runs.
- The unit doesn’t seem to ever actually heat your home, even when it runs.
- Your heating bill keeps increasing with the same hours of use.
Some of these can come from basic repair issues, including
- A bad furnace motor.
- Faulty flame sensors (for gas furnaces).
- A bad thermostat.
- A Faulty igniter (for gas furnaces).
Once you have a professional come in to assess the problem, you can make an educated decision about repair or replace of your heater or furnace. A good rule of thumb is this: if you have a major furnace issue, and the cost of repair is over 50% of the total cost of replacement, then replacement is probably a better idea. This is because as furnaces age, they will accumulate issues (and old issues will continue to pop up).
Paying for Furnace Replacement
We’re not going to pretend like replacing a furnace isn’t a big deal. Depending on maintenance and care, you should only have to replace your furnace once or twice in the lifetime of your home. But, if your home furnace and heating system goes out, or your bills are getting ridiculous due to an old furnace past its prime, then you need to take care of the problem as soon as possible.
Custom Comfort offers several options for financing and payment, so you don’t have to cover everything up front. This takes some of the stress of the financial side of the discussion, so you can focus on doing what is right: fixing your furnace and keeping your home warm and comfortable.
