How Do I Know if My Heater Needs to Be Replaced?
Knowing whether your heater needs to be replaced depends on several factors, including its age, performance, efficiency, and condition. Here are some signs that indicate your heater may need replacement:
- Age: If your heater is over 10-15 years old, it might be prone to breakdowns and inefficiencies, indicating replacement may be necessary.
- Frequent Repairs: Constant need for repairs suggests your heater may be reaching the end of its lifespan, making replacement a more cost-effective option.
- Increased Energy Bills: Older heaters tend to become less efficient, leading to higher energy consumption and bills.
- Inconsistent Heating: Struggling to maintain a consistent temperature throughout your home could indicate performance issues necessitating replacement.
- Strange Noises or Odors: Unusual sounds or smells emanating from your heater may signal internal problems, indicating potential replacement.
- Visible Damage or Corrosion: Rust, corrosion, or visible damage compromise efficiency and may warrant replacement.
- Yellow or Flickering Pilot Light: A yellow or flickering pilot light in a gas heater could indicate safety hazards or malfunctions, necessitating replacement.
- Safety Concerns: Any safety issues, such as gas leaks or carbon monoxide detection, should be addressed promptly, potentially requiring heater replacement to ensure household safety.
Types of Heaters We Install
When you are choosing a new heating system, you have numerous options. Common types of heaters include gas or electric furnaces, heat pumps, and ductless mini-split systems. Each has its advantages when it comes to heating capacity, energy and cost efficiency, and longevity.
Gas and electric furnaces are popular options. They are capable of heating spaces quickly and can last for over 20 years with proper maintenance. The cost of operating either depends on the price of gas and electricity in your area. Similarly, the price of installation will vary based on whether you have the proper electrical or gas hookups in place.
Heat pumps are versatile, as they can produce hot and cold air. They can also be highly efficient in the right climates, where temperatures do not regularly drop below freezing. Ductless mini-split systems are another multifaceted option. They allow you to control the local temperatures of different zones in your home or business. This technology can be especially advantageous for remodeled or newly constructed spaces that do not have existing ductwork.
At Best Heating, Cooling & Electric, we often install products from York, a leading brand in the HVAC industry. To check out some of their excellent technologies, visit our products page.

Five Benefits of Upgrading Your Heater
When you upgrade your heater, you can capture numerous benefits that help you save money in the short and long terms.
With a new heater, you can:
- Improve your energy efficiency: Many newer makes and models of heaters use less fuel and electricity, all while providing you with the same amount of heat. By reducing your energy consumption, you can save money each month and reduce your carbon footprint.
- Maximize your comfort: A system upgrade is going to give you excellent temperature control and a heating capacity that is perfect for your home or business.
- Increase your safety: As units age, they become more susceptible to breakdowns and complications such as gas leaks that can become serious hazards. A new heater is going to give you the assurance that your property is safe from these issues.
- Get rid of pesky repairs: With an updated heater, you can do away with compounding problems and expenses. It is often much more cost effective to get a replacement than pay for one repair after the next with a faulty system.
- Add value to your property: Should you decide to sell your home or commercial location, a new heating unit is going to help you get a higher selling price.
