Holding off on heater repair leads to replacement

I waited as long as possible before calling for heater repair.

  • I should have tied up professional repair as soon as I noticed an issue with the boiler.

By holding off, I ended up with a much greater disruption plus expense. Initially, the heater was running for longer cycles than usual. I suspected that there wasn’t as much warm air flowing from the vents. I responded by raising the control unit setting. This simply put greater demand on the heater. Because of the longer run times, the system consumed more energy which led to higher yearly utility bills. Eventually, the boiler began making an odd grinding sound whenever it started up. I ignored it. I also paid little attention to the odd smells coming from the vents plus dust circulating in the air. All of these were warning signs of concerns with operation. I was reluctant to spend the time plus cash on a heater repair. My hesitation led to the heater quitting completely in the middle of the night in the middle of January. With outdoor hot plus cold temperatures in the teens, I was quickly in a large hurry to get a new boiler installed. There was no time to weigh openings plus shop around. I needed to have a functioning heater before my plumbing pipes froze. I also couldn’t leave my family without heat, and fortunately, the Heating, Ventilation & A/C supplier was entirely great about expediting the project. They helped me to secure financing plus handled the replacement quickly. While I’m severely ecstatic with the new heater, all of that expense, stress plus disruption could have been avoided if I’d acted right away.
