A New Heater to Keep Your Family Warm
It can be tough deciding whether or not you actually need a new heater. There are a few factors that you will want to take into consideration while you are making your decision:
- If your home is newer, then chances are good that your heater is the same age as your home
- The heaters in homes that have had several owners might be a bit older than you think they are
- A heater installation can save you a lot on future energy costs since many new heaters are also energy efficient
- If you are thinking about new heater installation, you might also want to think about replacing your air conditioner at the same time if they are the same age
- Even if you plan on selling your home soon, installing a brand new heater is a good way to entice potential buyers to make an more lucrative offer on your home
One of the best ways to ensure that you get as many years out of your current heater as possible is to make sure that you have your heater regularly serviced. Routine heater maintenance from the experienced technicians at Robert B. Payne, Inc. can help prevent sudden breakdowns and emergency repairs in the future. Rather than think about how much you will have to pay for maintenance, think of how much you can save in the future.

How do I pick a new heating system for my home?
When it comes to choosing a heating system for your home, a couple of factors will play a part in the decision. These factors include the fuel type you intend to use, or the energy source; the distribution system; how efficient you want the system to run; and the cost of the system itself. There are furnaces, boilers, and electric heat pumps. The biggest of systems is not necessarily the better option, though, which is important to keep in mind.
Efficiency and cost will most likely be the major deciding points for most homeowners. The more efficient it is, the less it will cost for you to run the heating system on a regular basis. For cost, you must factor in the installation, the long-term operating costs, and the general maintenance of the system. A carefully planned maintenance routine can cut down on costly repairs in the future.
On average, how long is a heating system’s lifespan?
A central heating system within the home or office was designed to be as efficient as possible. These systems come in a wide variety of types, powered by different fuel sources, and have varying average lifespans. The lifespan of your heating system depends on the system itself, the level of maintenance required annually, and whether or not you had the system professionally installed.
For the most part, a furnace will last anywhere from 15 to 20 years. A boiler, however, can last up to 30 years if properly cared for the entire time. For a boiler, the quality of the water being supplied will make a huge impact on how long the heating system will remain effective.
Some key maintenance tasks a home or business owner can perform to ensure they get the most out of their heating system include changing the filter regularly, receiving service on their system either annually or seasonally, removing debris from an outside unit, and replacing the refrigerant when needed.
