Is It Time To Upgrade Your Heating System?
COMMON SIGNS OF AN AGING HVAC SYSTEM AND KNOWING WHEN IT IS TIME TO UPGRADE TO A MORE EFFICIENT SYSTEM
Is your home heating system more than 10 years old? Does your system struggle to heat your home comfortably and evenly? Does your heater, furnace, or boiler seem to run all the time? Does your heater make weird noises? Or most importantly, has your energy bill been higher than you expected? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, it’s probably time to upgrade your home heating system.
The efficiency of your home heating system not only affects how comfortable your home is, but also affects the damage it causes to the environment and to your monthly budget.
If your heating or air conditioning system runs all the time or seems to struggle to heat or cool your home, this could be a sign of a leak or faulty component that is killing the efficient operation of your system. If your system is struggling, it is constantly using energy to heat or cool your home, resulting in high consumption and waste, and in turn, high energy costs.
If your home uses a boiler for heating, upgrading to a new, high-efficiency boiler can keep your energy bill low. According to energykinetics.com, an inefficient boiler wastes heat energy after it turns off. Extra heat in the room surrounding the boiler is a telltale sign of this “idle heating” problem. Replacing your old boiler with a modern unit that has good insulation or a separate hot water tank will stop this waste and ensure your home is heated efficiently. As for heaters, air conditioners, and other HVAC appliances, Kennedy Air Conditioning offers an array of choices for modern, high-efficiency HVAC units that can save you money in the long run.
If you suspect that your HVAC system is on the fritz, or even if you just want to explore options to save money on your energy bill, it’s a good idea to have an energy assessment done at your home by a professional energy auditor. In addition to the HVAC equipment itself, a licensed energy auditor will inspect the ductwork and door and window seals around your home to see if there are any leaks that are allowing energy waste.
Many, many homeowners have discovered the financial and environmental benefits of upgrading to a modern, energy-efficient HVAC system.
