How an Old Heater Can Waste Money

Let’s get into the details of how an older heater can waste money.

Decreased Efficiency

The number one culprit behind a wasteful heater is decreased efficiency. This is more common in older systems simply because they’re outdated. You can have the best system for your home’s size and it can be perfectly fit to your needs, but time will eventually wear it down. Older heaters typically struggle with efficiency due to outdated or old parts.

Although you might not notice these efficiency troubles outright, you’ll probably notice more frustration when using your home’s heater. If you spend more time trying to get your heater to run properly or more money trying to get your system to perform, then we’d suggest considering a new heater. 

An Outdated Thermostat

Old heaters are often accompanied by old thermostats. An outdated thermostat can actually be the downfall of your home’s heating system. If your thermostat isn’t a smart or Wi-Fi model, we would recommend upgrading. Analog thermostats aren’t going to get you the efficiency one of these systems can promise. The same goes for digital thermostats. While they may have programmable features, they don’t have the universal access of a Wi-Fi thermostat or the learning ability that a smart thermostat offers. 

Frequent Repairs

Old heaters often have decreased efficiency, which can cause frequent repair needs. If you notice that you need to repair your heater more than once every few years, then it’s time to schedule an appointment with our professionals to talk about replacement. Frequent repairs are one of the biggest indicators of inefficiency. It’s almost guaranteed that you’re spending too much money on a system that isn’t serving you right.
