Signs of Heating Replacement in Phoenix AZ

While all heating systems eventually need repairs, they also eventually need to be replaced. Knowing when that is can be difficult. At Goettl Good Guys, we’ve responded to countless calls for heating repairs in Phoenix and wanted to share some of the signs that could indicate that you should replace your heating system.

  • Age of your heater – Probably one of the best indicators of when you should replace your heating system is its age. Most heating systems are designed to last about 20-25 years. If your heating system has reached that point and it is requiring more repairs, it might make more financial sense to just replace it.
  • Cracked heat exchanger – If you have a furnace, a cracked heat exchanger is normally the kiss of death for it—no matter how old it is. Heat exchangers can crack if they over heat or if they get short cycled for a long period of time. A cracked heat exchanger is a huge safety issue because it can cause a carbon monoxide leak in your home.
  • Rusted boiler – If your boiler has started to rust on the inside of the tank it usually means that it needs to be replaced. Rust is a huge problem for your entire radiant heating system because it can spread to other parts.
