Although it’s gotten a bit warmer since January’s single digit temperatures, it’s still cold outside! Was your heating system able to stand up to the bitter cold we’ve experienced this winter, or has it been struggling to keep you and your family warm and healthy? Maybe it’s time you thought about upgrading!
Whether or not the thought has crossed your mind, here are some questions you can ask yourself that’ll help you determine if a replacement is in order:
When did I purchase my heating system?
If you can’t remember when you bought your heating system, chances are it’s been a long time! If you think your equipment has been in your home for 12+ years, an upgrade can help improve your home’s comfort levels significantly!
How much am I spending on my heating costs?
As your equipment gets older and less efficient, you’ll find that your heating costs increase in spite of your heating needs staying the same. If you’re receiving fuel more frequently and those costs are slowly building up, a replacement can help save you on fueling costs.
Why is my heating equipment making so much noise?
A noisy system suggests that it’s in need of repair – and if this happens frequently enough your repair costs will soon start to rise as well as your heating costs. Eventually, it’ll be more practical and cost effective to pay for a system replacement than it is to constantly throw money into an old system.
Where is my heat?
If your heating equipment isn’t doing the one thing you need it to be doing – keeping you warm – an upgrade will help improve your system’s coverage and ensure you of the comfort you’re looking for!
