5 SIGNS IT’S TIME TO UPGRADE YOUR HOME HEATING SYSTEM

Have you noticed it takes longer for your home to warm up? Does your system seem to run all the time? Here are 5 signs it might be time to upgrade your heating system.

  1. Your Heating System is 15 Years Old

If your system is more than 15 years old, consider replacing it with a unit that has earned the ENERGY STAR label. These high-efficiency units can help you save on your heating costs.

  1. Your Home Has Humidity Problems

If you’re system is outdated you may experience humidity throughout the house in the summer and dryness in the winter. Installing a new, efficient system will help eliminate these problems. A new heating system can help reduce dry air and also assist in the preservation of woodwork and furniture.

  1. Your System is Noisy

If your system is making loud unusual noises it’s possibly time for a maintenance or a replacement. Have a Homestead technician come out to diagnose whether you need a repair or if it’s better to invest in a system upgrade.

  1. Your Ducts are Dated

Do rooms in your home feel too hot, while others are too cold? This can be a sign that you’re having issues with your air ducts.  Efficient and well-designed duct systems distribute air properly throughout your home. Have your Homestead technician do a thorough inspection of your ducts to see if they simply need to be cleaned or sealed.

  1. Unusual Amount of Service

Have you noticed that your unit requires more maintenance than usual? As heating systems age, they tend to need more repairs. When these repairs become frequent, this is an indicator it might be time to upgrade to a new unit.

Have you noticed any of these signs with your heating system? Purchasing a new HVAC system is an investment, but the right system will save you money in the long. Call Homestead today!
