3 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Heating System
Thursday, October 22, 2015

Is your heating and air conditioning good to go or about to quit?

We rely so heavily on our heating & air conditioning systems but we often end up taking them for granted. They only last so long, however, and it’s good to know when it’s time to start thinking about replacing them. Here are 3 signs to watch for when it comes to your heating system:

1. The Age of Your Heating System

Considering the age of your system is a good first step in knowing whether it’s getting close to replacement. Most systems are built to last approximately 15-20 years. If yours is younger than that, and you’ve maintained it properly, you’re probably ok. But pay attention to its age and the other tips below if it’s getting into its teen years.

2. Higher Heating Bills

If you’ve noticed that your heating bills have slowly been creeping higher, but the temperature outside is still consistent, this could be a sign that your heating system is starting to fail. As your heater ages it becomes less efficient. As the efficiency decreases, your energy consumption and energy bills increase. It might be time to investigate high efficiency options that you could upgrade to that would pay for themselves over time with increased efficiency and reduced bills.

3. Inconsistent Temperature

A heating system that is in peak condition will keep your home consistently comfortable. If you feel like some rooms are colder than others or if you find you’re adjusting the thermostat more often to keep your house warm, your system might be due for replacement.

If you see any of the above signs in your heating system, it’s a good idea to consider your options for replacement. For all the information you need on upgrading your heating and air conditioning system, contact the team at All City Heat and Air.

My experience could not have been better. I called in the morning for an afternoon appointment since I found that one of my AC units was not working properly in the morning. The technician was right on time. He quickly diagnosed the problem and quickly repaired it for a reasonable price. I would definitely recommend All City Heat and Air.
