For systems more than 15 years old, it’s time to start thinking about replacement. If you’re unsure about the condition of your system, routine maintenance can help detect potential problems and safety risks. If you’re ready to consider replacement options, we suggest that you schedule a free in-home consultation.
Here are some of the many reasons to decide to replace your heating system instead of repairing it:
Home use such as special heating conditions due to a home office, an exercise room, parties or if there exists unnecessary heating of closed-off rooms or during unoccupied periods.
Comfort requirements such as stale air problems, specific rooms that are too hot or too cold, system noise levels, or air that is too humid (muggy) or too dry (e.g. static electricity, dry throat or skin).
Health/safety requirements such as indoor air quality, respiratory conditions, humidity control, or child safety concerns around your system.
Property requirements such as if you are planning home renovations or adding on to your home.
Financial requirements such as the importance of saving money on energy consumption and operating cost, or working with a contractor that can protect a homeowner from risk and liability, or your wish to explore financing options.
