3 Reasons Why You Need To Replace Your Old Heating System

The cold weather has arrived! You’ve probably turned on the heat in your home to chase away the chill.

But are you still covered in a mountain of blankets every night waiting for your house to warm up? Do you dread when you need to get out from under that mountain and do something—like eat breakfast at the kitchen table? Maybe it’s just a simple repair, but maybe it’s time to replace. Here are 3 questions to ask yourself to help you make the right decision:

  1. Is your heat pump over 10 years old? If you own a furnace or boiler, is it over 15 years old? Expensive repairs often start piling up after a certain point of the unit’s lifespan. If your unit’s age is over these basic guidelines, it’s probably time to replace.
  2. Is your system running more often but not all the rooms in your home are comfortable? This is a sign of inefficient equipment operation.
  3. Are you paying more on your energy bills? New systems run more efficiently and save you BIG money on your utility bills (up to 20%)

Quick Tip: ***** If you and your family aren’t home during the day, make sure to have a programmable thermostat installed with your new HVAC installation. A programmable thermostat can save you close to $180 annually in energy costs.
