Does Your Heating System Need Replacing?

We’ve recently been covering the importance of having a regular heating system tune-up. Cold weather will be here before you know it, and we want you to be confident in the reliability of your heating system.  If you think your system is beyond maintaining and may need replacing, we are here to help.

So how do you know for sure if you need to replace your home heating system?

Your boiler or furnace is more than 15 years old.

Even if everything is working properly, older equipment is not typically efficient. You can save money in the long run by upgrading to a newer model.

You notice a sudden increase in heating bills.

Your home heating system isn’t functioning as it should. As these systems begin failing, they become less efficient. This only worsens the problem and can cause even greater wear on the system.

Indoor humidity issues or excessive dust buildup.

Although they are less obvious problems, humidity issues and dust buildup can still be a result of improperly functioning heating equipment.

Replacing an old inefficient furnace is not most homeowners’ idea of a good time. It is a large investment that most people will only do once in a lifetime. If your system does need replacing, we offer several options that can fit your budget and situation.

Most importantly, don’t wait until your unit actually fails and you’re without heat to start shopping for heating systems. Nothing’s worse than the inside of your fridge is warmer than your kitchen. Brrr. Catch the signs early so your home keeps you warm this winter.
