It’s appealing to think of our appliances lasting forever with no need to replace them: “This is the last car I’ll ever need to buy!” But the reality is that machines do eventually get old and start to run down. With proper maintenance and timely repairs, they can last longer—but at some point the repairs will no longer be enough.

You might be wondering when heating repairs are no longer the best option to keep your heater running during a tough Ohio winter. A new, up-to-date replacement system may be the solution. Quality Air Heating and Air Conditioning is ready to answer your questions about the most cost-effective route to keep you warm in the Columbus area.

Too Many Repairs

Consider the frequency of repairs your heater needs. If you’ve had regular maintenance done on your heating system, such as annual check-ups, but you still find you need repairs regularly, then it’s a strong sign that your heater is on shaky legs. Call a professional to get an informed opinion and find out about your options for a replacement.

Consistently High Heating Bills

Pay close attention to your monthly heating bills. A sudden spike in costs can point to trouble that requires repairs—but if your bills rise and stay that way, then your heater may be too worn down to work efficiently any more. Ask a technician if the increase in your bills is a warning that your heater might be expiring.

Uneven Heating

Uneven heating in your home is another sign to watch out for. Sometimes the problem is with vents or your pipes. But if these uneven heat levels are occurring in conjunction with numerous repairs, loud and unusual noises, and higher bills, it might mean that the heater itself is at fault because of its age. A professional can get to the heart of the matter and tell you if getting a new system installed is the best choice.

Getting a replacement heater for your home is a big step to take, but if done properly it can save you money in the long run and let you take advantage of advances in HVAC technology. Call Quality Air Heating and Air Conditioning for heating repair or replacement in Columbus!
