Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your Home Heating Unit

There are a few signs that it is time to upgrade your home heating unit. Upgrading your unit can lead to so many benefits – lower bills, fewer noises coming from it, and a nice temperature in your home.
Look out for these signs!
The first sign is that the temperature in your home is never quite right – it is either too hot or too cold and different in each room. This is occurring because there is an issue with the air ducts in your unit, as heating units are designed to provide an equal amount of heat to each room. So, if you are experiencing and unequal distribution, you may need an upgrade.
Next, if your heating unit is over ten years old you really need to replace it, as heating systems a decade or more years old tend to have really low levels of efficiency – between 50-70%, which will be stacking up the bills and reducing the quality of heat in your home.
Another sign that it’s time to upgrade is if your heating unit has had more than three repairs. This is a sign of a poorly working heating unit, as this level of attention required is not ordinary. Repairs can be expensive! More than three repairs would probably cost close to the price of a brand-new unit.
