Keep an eye out for the following signs that indicate an outdated heating system.

A Yellow Burner Flame

Normally, when you look inside your furnace, a burner flame should be steady with a blue hue. A brief explainer: furnace flames need to have the right amount of both gas and oxygen for optimal heater performance. A yellow furnace flame could mean that there’s not enough oxygen or there’s too much gas present. So if you notice that your flame has a yellowish color and flickering instead of a blue one, contact a technician immediately for heating services.

Either way, you’d need to have your heater inspected by a professional to determine if a heating replacement is necessary.

A Rise in Utility Bills

If you notice that your gas or electric bill is spiking up, it can signify a heater with reduced efficiency. The older your heating system gets, the more difficult it will be for it to heat up your space. When this happens, your utility costs are likely to increase, even if your heater usage has remained the same.

Your Heater Is Past Its Prime

A standard furnace has an average lifespan of up to 20 years. If your heater is past its prime, consider looking into your heating installation options to upgrade your outdated heater.

Increasing Need for Frequent Repairs

When your system requires frequent services like heating maintenance and repairs, it shows an outdated heater since the aging components are more prone to breaking down. Upgrading your heater before it fails completely allows you to avoid catastrophic heater failure, especially during the cold winter months when you need your heater the most.

If you notice any or all of the above indications, you know it is time to get a new heating system in your home. At Zack’s Best Service Inc., we provide top-notch assistance for your heater-related concerns. Contact us today!
