Our Connecticut heating equipment replacement and installation experts can assist you with:
- Boilers. Boilers heat water and subsequently distribute the steam or hot water to rooms throughout your home. As the steam or hot water circulates, it gives off heat, effectively warming your space. Boilers are renowned for their efficiency and uniform heat distribution, providing consistent warmth even in the coldest months. A well-maintained oil or propane boiler can last between 15 to 20 years, though some models can last even longer. With that said, the actual lifespan of a boiler can be influenced by several factors, including the quality of its installation, the hardness of the water it heats, and how regularly it is serviced. While a boiler may not necessarily need to be replaced as soon as it reaches the end of its projected lifespan, you should monitor it for signs of malfunction or reduced efficiency as it gets older. Frequent breakdowns, noticeable increases in energy bills, or inconsistent heating are indicators that your boiler may be nearing the end of its service life.
- Furnaces. Furnaces draw in ambient air, heat it, and then distribute the warmed air throughout a home via a system of ductwork and vents. The air circulates until the desired temperature set on the thermostat is reached. The average furnace will typically have a service life of 15 to 30 years, though some may last for up to 40 years with consistent maintenance. Like boilers, the precise lifespan will depend on the quality of the installation and frequency of servicing. Older furnaces nearing the end of their service life may operate noisily or emit an unusual smell, both indications of potential problems. You may also need to consider a replacement if you are dealing with uneven heating, unusually high energy bills, or constant repairs.
- Hot water heaters. Hot water heaters come in various types, each with benefits and lifespans. The two primary types are tankless and storage tank water heaters. Tankless water heaters, as their name suggests, do not store water but heat it on demand as it flows through the unit. By directly heating the water, they eliminate the standby energy losses associated with storage tank heaters, making them a more energy-efficient choice. On the other hand, storage tank water heaters keep a reservoir of hot water ready for use. These tanks can hold anywhere from 20 to 80 gallons of water, which is heated and stored until needed. The water is then replaced as it is used, maintaining a constant supply of hot water. The lifespan of a hot water heater largely depends on its type, quality of installation, maintenance, and water quality. On average, a storage tank water heater can last between 8 to 12 years, while a tankless system can last up to 20 years or more with proper maintenance. If your water heater is getting older and you notice an overall decrease in water temperature, inconsistencies in water heating, or an increase in energy bills, it could indicate that your unit is losing its efficiency and may need to be replaced. Rusty water, leaking, or excessive noise from the heater are also signs that a replacement may be necessary.
- Pool heaters. Pool heaters are fundamental components of many residential swimming pools, working to maintain a comfortable and enjoyable swimming temperature. They pump pool water into a heating tank and then return the heated water back into the pool, creating a continuous cycle of water being heated and reintroduced and ensuring a consistent temperature. There are several types of pool heaters, including gas heaters, electric resistance heaters, heat pumps, and solar pool heaters. Each type has distinct operational mechanisms and efficiency levels. The average lifespan of a pool heater depends largely on the type of heater, the quality of the installation, and how diligently it is maintained. Gas pool heaters, for instance, can usually last anywhere from 5 to 10 years, while electric resistance and solar heaters can last 20 years or more with appropriate upkeep. Common indicators that your pool heater might need to be replaced include difficulty in achieving the desired pool temperature, unexpected rises in energy bills, or frequent need for repairs. If your pool is not staying as warm as it should or the heater is not running efficiently, it could be time for a replacement.
