When your heater malfunctions, it can leave your home chilly and uncomfortable. There are a variety of factors that may cause your heating system to stop working. While some of these may be simple fixes, such as a clogged filter or a tripped circuit breaker, other issues may require the entire unit to be replaced. In general, it is a good idea to do a cost-benefit analysis when deciding whether to repair or replace your system.
Water heaters typically last between 15-25 years. If your system is more than 3/4ths of its lifespan, and the cost to repair it is more than 1/3rd of the cost to replace it, then you should consider replacing the system. A newer heating unit will last longer, save you money on repairs in the future, and provide better efficiency for your home.
Furthermore, if there are problems that could threaten the safety of your home, such as a broken heat exchanger (that could send carbon monoxide into your home), you should replace the system. Simple repairs are best for minor issues in a fairly new system that is still in good condition. If your system is older, has a major problem, or has been displaying signs of wear and tear, a replacement can provide many benefits.
