Heater Installation & Replacement Near San Francisco, CA
There are many reasons you may need or want a new heating system for your San Francisco area home. Your old system may be reaching the end of its lifespan (15+ years old), or you just may want to install a new more efficient system. Whichever it is, Cabrillo will take care of all your heating installation needs. If you're not sure which new heater, furnace, or heat pump is right for you, we'll consider your home's unique needs and help you find the right fit.
A furnace in the San Francisco, California, area should last 15 to 20 years on average. The furnace's lifespan can be influenced by several variables, including regular maintenance, usage patterns, and the furnace's quality. Because the winters in the San Francisco area are milder than those in other locations, furnaces may not be as stressed as they would be and thus last longer. Still, it's critical to keep an eye on productivity and effectiveness. For increased dependability and energy efficiency, it could be time to replace your furnace if it exhibits age symptoms or is having frequent problems.
Before you replace your heater, evaluate its age, efficiency, and repair history. A piece of technology that is outdated or in need of frequent repairs may be worth replacing. Evaluate energy efficiency to reduce operating costs. Think about your heating requirements and any recent home improvements. Cost, including installation costs, should be considered offset by possible energy savings over the long term. Consultation with an HVAC professional can provide specialized advice based on your individual needs, allowing you to make an informed decision.

When Should You Replace Your Heater?
If you're unsure whether your heater, furnace, or heat pump is in need of repair or replacement, there are several important factors to consider. Age, wear, and tear all play a part in whether it makes the most sense to continue fixing heating issues or upgrade to a new system.
Signs it may be time for a replacement:
- Your heater or furnace is more than 15 years old. On average, furnaces can last up to 20 years if they are properly maintained and tuned up seasonally. Addressing small repairs as soon as they're discovered can also extend the lifespan. After 15 years, you'll want to weigh the pros and cons of spending more money on repairs versus upgrading to a new system.
- You're looking to upgrade your energy efficiency. Over time, your furnace or heater will lose efficiency, and have to work harder to keep your home comfortable. You may notice an increase in your monthly utility costs as a result. Upgrading to a new system like an energy-efficient heat pump will lower energy costs and provide more reliable comfort.
- Your current system simply isn't cutting it. There are many reasons why your heater could be struggling to keep your home evenly warm. If you don't have the right-sized system, it's likely struggling to meet your family's energy demands. Upgrading to a properly-sized unit will ensure consistent warmth in every room.
- You're facing frequent or costly repairs. If your current heater wasn't installed properly or hasn't been maintained over the years, you may deal with problem after problem. At some point, you may run into an extensive issue where a repair is possible, but not worth sinking the money into when you could upgrade instead.
