For some appliances, such as a microwave or toaster, it may be okay to wait for a breakdown before we even consider repairs or a replacement—mostly because these aren’t devices we rely on too heavily, however convenient they make our lives.
However, it would be unwise to use this same mindset when it comes to your home’s heating system. Your heater is a major investment in your comfort that requires professional installation. While it’s not too hard to go a few days without a toaster, a coffee maker, a blender, etc., a broken down heater during one of the chilliest days of the year can make life pretty unbearable.
Breakdowns Cost a Lot to Repair
The cost of repairing a heater malfunction while the system is at least still operational is almost always less expensive than trying to restore a completely broken down system. If your heater breaks down, it’s most likely going to be due to a number of overlapping problems that all need attention. However if you have a problem taken care of when it’s still small, it will cost you far less to repair.
Breakdowns are Damaging
As mentioned above, breakdowns are most often the result of a number of small problems. Therefore, by the time it breaks down completely, the wear and tear on the components is likely so heavy that your heater will have to be replaced entirely. This is an inconvenience that’s not only avoidable, but costly as well.
Breakdowns Are Inconvenient
When heaters break down, it’s usually after weeks of use. That means that when it happens, it could very well be during one of the coldest days of winter. So you’ll then be stuck in a very uncomfortable situation while you wait for repairs or a replacement.
