When cold weather strikes in Texas, you want to be able to count on your heater. Here are 5 reasons why you should consider our team for your heating installation:
At Efficient, we do not believe in “condemning” HVAC equipment just because it is not in optimal shape. An air conditioner past its prime should be considered for replacement, but the owner should be able to take a reasonable risk if they desire. That’s because an air conditioner failure is usually just a comfort and/or convenience issue. This is not true for heaters. When in need of repair, they may be mechanically unsafe. In those cases, it’s in no one’s best interest to continue to run them. Rotted heat exchangers and other heat-related damage are the most common culprits, and these should be addressed before the next heating season.
Heaters are not usually replaced on their own in southern climates like Austin. Why? Typically, air conditioners have shorter life, and heaters are replaced each time the whole system is replaced. Homeowners should always be wary of an air conditioner replacement proposal which reuses the old heater, unless it is much newer. It is best and most cost effective to replace everything and start over. By doing so, heater condition is rarely an issue with proper routine maintenance.
If you opt to replace your furnace on its own, we’ll perform an assessment to choose the correct model to match your existing system. You can expect a free quote and time to decide as needed. On replacement day, the work can take between two and six hours, depending on configuration, access and complexity. Once complete, your furnace will heat quickly and efficiently for many years to come with minimal maintenance.
Any heater should be installed by a licensed, reputable contractor with experience. Codes, laws and manufacturer installation instructions must be followed. Failure to do so can pose health and safety risks beyond those of non-gas appliances. You can trust Efficient to prioritize your long-term well-being, not just your short-term comfort. We provide heater replacement services to the greater Austin and San Antonio areas, including but not limited to:
