Heater Replacement Services
It’s hard to know if it’s time for a new heater. Trust us, you don’t want to find that out on the first, cold night in Austin. Here are a few common signs that you need a new heater:
- Several repairs throughout the season – Have you recently called an AC and heating company to repair your heater? Another repair might be more costly and less efficient than an entirely new system. Service Wizard will take a look at the cost of your repairs versus the cost of a new system and make sure you are getting the best deal.
- Strange noises – While it’s common to hear your system turning on and shutting off, other noises beyond that are not normal. If you hear loud rattling or banging sounds, you could have an issue with the motor. If you’re hearing high squeals, you could have an issue with the compressor. Our team will assess the situation and let you know if you need a heater replacement.
- Your system is short cycling – Have you noticed your system turning on and off over and over for short periods of time? This is called short-cycling, which is an inefficient way for your system to run. This is a telltale sign that it’s time to have your system replaced.
- High utility bills – If you are noticing higher electricity bills in the winter, your system might be losing efficiency. Furnaces and HVAC systems are less efficient as they age.
What is the Difference Between a Furnace and a Heater?
A heater is a catch-all, broad term for the mechanism used to heat your home or space. A furnace is a specific appliance/tool used to accomplish the goal of heating your home. The furnace is the primary source of central heating. The furnace sends air into the different rooms in your home.
