Made the Decision to Upgrade Your Heating System? What to Do Next

October 21, 2014 | Blog

Heating and cooling is the biggest energy user in most homes, adding up to roughly 40 percent of the average household’s energy bills. So when the time comes to replace your system, it pays to look at all your options and make an informed choice. 

Upgrading the heating system in your home is an investment, but it can really pay off in the form of long term savings. Before you make any decisions, there are a few questions you should ask yourself about your old system:

  • Are you paying more than you think you should (or more than you used to) in energy bills?
  • Does your furnace, heater, or air conditioner run a lot?
  • Is your system more than 10 years old, and does it not keep your house comfortable?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then a new heating system is something to consider. But before you make that investment, you should be aware that there are a few other possible causes to the problems listed above, along with a few other solutions. There are a few steps you should take before you buy a new heating system:

  • Check your home and HVAC system for air leaks. Leaks can cause conditioned air to escape, driving up heating bills and reducing comfort. Leaky air ducts are a common culprit.
  • Have an energy assessment done in your house by an HVAC professional. This can help you root out potential problems that may be causing your heating system to perform poorly.

Whatever you do, it’s important to consult with a professional before you invest in a new heating system. It’s the best way to make sure you get the most out of your system and don’t spend more than you have to.

Great Company

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
