Franklin Heater Installation Done Right

Heater Replacement Services

Without our heaters, we would be forced to spend the winters gathering wood to keep warm through the frigid nights. Today, most of us take the ability to warm our homes at the flip of a switch for granted – until our heaters stop and we find ourselves shivering in the middle of the night.

At Deets, we pride ourselves on offering heater services with a level of customer satisfaction that’s unmatched. When your heater breaks down and you find yourself in need of the best Franklin heater replacement you can find, our team is eager to show you why no one beats Deets.

How Long Does The Average Heater Last?

Important information to have when considering replacement is the lifespan of your average heater unit. Both knowing if you should replace your current system and knowing how long you should expect from a new system can save you unnecessary costs. On average, a residential heater will last between 15-20 years.

Signs You Need To Replace Your Heater

Sometimes it can be difficult to feel confident about whether your heater needs to be replaced or if a simple repair would do the trick. This is understandable. While most of the time, a repair can keep your system limping along until the next breakdown, this is neither safe nor practical.

Deets wants you to feel confident with every decision you make with us. That’s why we take pride in providing our customers with as much information as possible so they can take agency over their home services.

Here are a few instances where we feel it would be responsible for anyone to start considering a heater replacement.

Higher Frequency Of Repairs

Every heater will need at least a few repairs over the course of its lifetime. This is entirely normal. However, if you notice the amount you have to pay for repairs is increasing in frequency, you might want to ask a professional about replacement.

A system that’s frequently breaking down will reach a point of diminishing returns. At that point, it will make more financial sense to replace the entire system rather than continue to repair it.

Higher Than Normal Utility Bills

Sometimes, the signs of a failing heater can be subtle and only detected via secondary sources, like your utility bill. If you’re noticing a higher-than-normal energy bill during the winter, it could be a sign of faults in your heating system. Higher energy bills could be a sign that you need a simple repair — or it could indicate you need a heater replacement.

Strange Noises

Strange noises, like banging or clanging, can be a sign of a malfunctioning system. Your heater contains several moving parts – like fans and blower motors – that, when failing, can cause odd noises. Also, the constant heating and cooling of the entire system causes the metal materials to expand and contract. This could also lead to faults that cause noise in places that don’t have moving parts.

Inconsistent Heating

Whatever type of heater is servicing your home, it should be able to adequately heat the entire space. If your heater is failing to fully heat your entire home, it could be a sign of an overall declining system and indicate a need for replacement. Cold spots, cool air from the vents and a temperamental thermostat are all signs that you need heater services.


As mentioned above, the average lifespan of a furnace is 15-20 years. This is the average. It’s possible to get even more use out of your unit. However, if the age of your system is causing any of the issues mentioned above, it’s time to consider finding a quality furnace replacement company.
