Types of Heaters
In addition to considering several qualities of their desired heating system, residents also need to determine which kind of heater and fuel type they prefer. Furnaces often come automatically installed in a house, but this does not mean they are residents’ only option. Moreover, different heating systems are energized by distinct fuel types. Furnaces can run on gas, propane, electricity, or even energy harnessed from solar panels. From furnaces to heat pumps, we can explain the differences, both positive and negative.

Is a Multi-Stage Furnace Worth the Cost?
The difference between single-stage and multi-stage furnaces is that the first only has two modes: on and off. This means that single-stage furnaces must operate at full power, heating up the entire house even when only one room is cold. Multi-stage systems can only switch to high power if there is a drastic temperature change but usually require less power.
Multi-stage furnaces have lots of benefits, but the greatest of these is their increased efficiency. Whether the furnace uses electricity or gas, it requires less energy to operate in the low-power mode. Not only does low-power mode use less energy or fuel, but it also leads to increased comfort in your home or business. Running longer on lower-power mode decreases your heater turning on and off, provides a more even or consistent heat throughout the home and increases the time your air is being purified via your filter system. Let our experts at Reiner walk you through even more of the unique advantages of these innovative systems.
What Are The Signs That It’s Time To Replace My Heater?
Replacing a heater is a significant decision, and several signs can indicate that it's time to consider a replacement. Here are some signs to look out for:
- Age of the Heater: Heaters typically have a lifespan of 10-15 years. If your heater is approaching or has exceeded this range, it may be more prone to issues and less efficient. Consider replacement, especially if repairs are becoming more frequent.
- Increased Energy Bills: If you notice a significant increase in your heating bills, it could be a sign that your heater is working less efficiently. Newer models are often more energy-efficient and can help you save on heating costs.
- Frequent Repairs: If you find yourself frequently calling for repairs, the cost of these repairs can add up. At some point, it may be more cost-effective to invest in a new, more reliable heater.
- Uneven Heating: If certain rooms in your home are consistently colder than others, or if you're experiencing uneven heating, it could be a sign that your heater is struggling to distribute heat evenly.
- Strange Noises: Unusual sounds such as banging, clanking, or squealing coming from your heater may indicate mechanical problems. These issues may become more frequent as the heater ages.
