Ductless heating systems last about as long as any other heating system, as long as you take proper care of them. While you can get your ductless heater to give you a good couple of decades of service, eventually it will reach the end of its life. It is a good idea to be able to recognize when your ductless heating system is getting close to that point, so that you can get it replaced as soon as possible. Otherwise, you may have it break down on you at a very inconvenient time. Let’s take a look at some of the signs that you need a new ductless heating system.
Higher Monthly Bills
Your heating bills are naturally going to get higher the more you use your system, but this is different. Older ductless heaters are so worn out that they are naturally going to be less efficient than when they were new. As the heater becomes less and less efficient, the amount of time it has to stay on to compensate will go up. This will lead to a consistent rise in your heating bills, regardless of how often you actually use your heater.
The closer the system gets to the end of its life, the more parts start to wear out and break down. Typically, you shouldn’t need to repair your ductless heating system more than once a year, at most. A system that is about to fail will have groups of parts begin to break in rapid succession, though. If you need to repair your heating system every couple of months, you really do need to talk to a professional about replacing it.
