A Broken Heater Leaving You Cold?
There might be plenty of do-it-yourself books and websites out there dedicated to HVAC systems, but oftentimes your best bet is to allow an experienced and reputable technician to take care of the repair instead. You never know when you might be doing more harm than good to your system.
There are a number of reasons that you might have a broken heater, including:
- There might be a problem with your thermostat
- The heater might have gas or oil but no electricity to run on
- There might not be any fuel
- The pilot light might not be on
- Your heating system might not be receiving proper air flow
If you are in need of boiler repair rather than heater repair, then there might be a number of other reasons that your home has become the North Pole, such as:
- There is not an adequate amount of water in the system
- Water might be leaking around the boiler
- There is excess air in your pipes, which could leave some of the rooms in your home or commercial building colder than others
While we encourage you to try to find the problem with your heater, we recommend giving us a call as soon as the mystery is solved. HVAC repairs can be dangerous for your home and family when done incorrectly.

Heating System Repair vs Replacement
Having a functioning heating system in your home is important but it can be confusing for homeowners to decide to repair or replace a malfunctioning heating system. A properly installed and maintained heating system, like a boiler or furnace, is important for the comfort of your home, especially in winter. Eventually, even the best heating systems will begin to break down. At Robert B. Payne, a heating professional will gladly repair the unit for you but if repairs become more frequent, and you find that the cost of the repairs is 50 percent or more of the cost of a new heating system, you should replace it with a new unit. If your heating system is older than 20 years, the cost of the repair should be only less than 15 percent of the replacement cost, to warrant a repair instead of replacement. In fact, replacing a 15+ year old unit with a new high efficiency heating system will offer significant savings in the long term. If you live in the Fredericksburg, VA area call Robert B. Payne for a knowledgeable professional to repair or install the heating system for your home.
How to Determine if A Heating System Needs To Be Repaired or Replaced
Heating systems get old, and as they age, they require more and more repairs. At some point, it’s time to ask whether it’s worth repairing the old system or if it is time to replace it with something new. Here is a quick rule of thumb that can help you make that decision: Age of System x Cost of Repair. If your total is under $4,000 it is time to repair, but if your total is OVER $4,000 it is time to replace!
Sometimes, the right decision is to let go of your old heating system because the repair costs will not only continue to increase but also will be needed more frequently. A new, energy efficient system will save money over time by not needing repairs immediately and by reducing overall energy costs. Whether your heating system needs to be repaired, replaced, or you’re unsure, give us a call! Our professional technicians are ready to help you make the most cost-effective decision that will keep your home warm.
