Your heating and cooling system is an important part of your household and you don’t want to be running one that’s well past its prime. That being said, most households have no idea how to tell when it’s time to replace their heating system.

  2. Uneven home temperature
    Poor equipment operation, duct problems and inadequate insulation could be the problem when different areas of your home are noticeably cooler than others. If your heating system is struggling to keep your entire home warm, it may be a clear indication that its time to replace your aging heating system.
  3. Higher utility bills
    In addition to the physical discomfort you experience when your heating system isn’t working properly, consider the financial cost you may be incurring! The harder your system has to work, the more energy it consumes and with energy prices on the rise you could be wasting hundreds of dollars every year.

Choices for a New Heating System

  • Heat pump. A heat pump is essentially and air conditioner that can heat and cool a house. The heat pump extracts the warmth found outside your house and then transfers the heat through a system of air ducts in your home.
  • Boiler. This type of system consists of a sealed chamber that converts water to steam and the heated water is distributed throughout the house by a system of radiators, heaters or through the floors.
  • Furnace. A furnace has an enclosed unit that transfers heat in a metal combustion chamber to the air ducts that distribute the air throughout the home. A furnace can rely on natural gas, propane or electricity.
