Don’t Panic: A Guide on Buying a Replacement Heater

Your heater is starting to sputter out of control and we still have a few months of cold weather left. That can be a scary predicament and a lot of homeowners would feel the stress and pressure in this particular instance. We get it.

We want to start by saying one important thing–don’t panic. Panic can cause customers to purchase systems and services cheaply and without enough research, causing them to require an early replacement eventually or to be unhappy with their new heating system. We get that you need heat and there’s no time to wait, but you don’t need to buy a system that won’t keep you happy.

In other words, we’d like to talk about how a heater replacement in Cedar Falls can be an opportunity to improve your home, your comfort, and your budget in the future. But the first step is to calm down and keep reading our post for a guide on buying a replacement system.

We Will Get You Heat

First, we want to be abundantly clear, we will get your home heated up again. This isn’t up for debate–your home requires heat, and we can give it to you. It doesn’t matter how long it takes or what your budget looks like, we just don’t leave customers and members of our community out in the cold.

With this in mind, take a deep breath and start by calling our team. We can walk you through the process in person if that’s easier. Or, just keep reading and schedule an appointment online if you’d prefer it that way.

Do Some Preliminary Research

Not every heating system is the same. Just because you had a gas or electric furnace before, doesn’t mean you need to replace it with the same system. These units are modular and can sometimes easily fit in the place where a different one was, depending on certain factors.

Do some research into the most common and efficient heating systems in your area. Perhaps you’d like to invest in a heat pump rather than an electric furnace since both are electrical and heat pumps are more convenient and efficient. Or maybe you’d be happier with a gas furnace. All of these are great options, so make sure you choose after learning about them.

Identify Priorities

Every home has specific priorities that need to be taken into account. If your ductwork is in disrepair, for instance, your highest priority might be choosing a replacement HVAC system that doesn’t use air ducts. Something like a ductless mini split might be perfect for your home, and might even bring you air conditioning in the summer since it’s a heat pump!

Write down your priorities and what you’d like to see in a prospective heating replacement, and we’ll work hard to make them a reality.

Maximize Your Savings

There are tons of tax credits, rebates, and promotions that can help you save money on a new heating system. Our team will walk you through what that might mean depending on your prospective heating system, and we’ll help you save as much money as possible.
