Winters are short here in Florida, and ours has already come to an end. With reduced need for your heating system, now is the ideal time to give it a good, long look and determine whether or not you need a new heater. Not only are you best equipped to assess the state of your heater now, after several months or regular use, but you have all summer to plan a replacement if one is required.
It can be extremely difficult to determine the exact point when a heater should be replaced, especially if it has been well maintained. Because we don’t experience long winters, our heating systems can actually last longer than they might in, say, Boston or Detroit. That said, there are still some telltale signs that your heater is ready to be replaced. If you’re considering whether or not you need a new system, here are some important factors to keep in mind.
