Upgrading your heating system is a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. It’s an investment that’s going to affect your home comfort and pocketbook for many years following the installation. Though, upgrading or deciding to repair or replace shouldn’t be a confusing or frustrating experience either. Focus your efforts on the benefits, and use these tips!

To Repair or To Replace?

The age of your residential heating unit has a lot to do with deciding whether to upgrade when facing a repair. The average service life of a gas furnace or heat pumps is 10 to 12 years. At this time, there is no warranty on the system and the efficiency of the older system will be very much outdated in comparison to the newest models.

If you are facing an expensive repair (e.g. failed compressor or cracked heat exchanger), it’s usually to your advantage to upgrade. Why put a lot of money into a system that you may replace soon anyway?

High Heating Bills

There are many factors that determine how much energy you use to keep your home comfortable. However, older furnaces and heat pumps just don’t deliver the energy efficiency that new hi-tech models do. One of the leading factors for determining if you should upgrade is the return on your investment in energy savings and new warranty. Ask your HVAC Comfort Consultant to prepare a cost analysis of installing a new HVAC system. Customers often state that their light bill is cut in half when they replace an older unit.

Better Comfort and IAQ

A new, well-designed and installed HVAC system is going to deliver you superior comfort. For the best results, explore your options for add-on equipment for your heating system to maximize indoor air quality and comfort.
