Sometimes, frequent breakdowns of the system may put you off. Coordinating with the repair agency and arranging for repair works end up wasting both your time and money. This makes you think whether it is better to replace with a new system than repairing it on a regular basis. Since buying a new system can cost you a considerable sum of money, the decision might be tough to take. Here are some points that can help you make a decision:
• Age of the machinery: Usually heating systems have a lifespan of 10 years. Since technology keeps evolving every day, newer models available might be more energy efficient and powerful, then your age-old system. Therefore if the machinery is more than ten years old, replacing it with a new one is the wiser option.
• Frequent repairs: You might not realize, but sometimes we tend to spend more on the repair works than what we would have paid for the new one. Hence, always consider making a cost comparison. Another problem with keeping old machinery is that it is difficult to find out the replaceable parts in the market since the current models use altogether different techniques and setups. The repair work requires a specialized skill set, and you need to hire professionals to do the repairs. So, you also have to consider the labor costs incurred.
• When the machinery becomes noisy: As the structural body of these heating systems starts wearing off, it starts to make awkward sounds. The sounds might be too high that you end up losing your sleep or getting embarrassed in front of your guests. Especially during colder months, when you need to keep the heating on throughout the day, these constant noises can be irritating. The sounds are also an indication that the machine needs bigger repairs. Hence, it is better to replace it than spending a huge sum to repair it.
The installation of the new system also requires special attention. It is best to hire a specialized professional team to do the installation. With the years of experience behind them, they know every detailing and specification of accurately setting up the heating system. You can also take up an AMC with these repair companies, to get the regular servicing of the system done. This way you will be ensured of better performance of the heating system.
