You may not have given much thought to your home’s heating this season, but as autumn approaches, it’s time to check up on the integrity of your heating system. If you know you need a new heater, now is the time to take care of it.
Here are 3 things to know about heating installation:
- Know the signs of a dying heater. Heating and HVAC systems vary in lifespan, but generally last 10 to 20 years with proper maintenance. Routine inspections are important to evaluate the state of your heating system, but there are also signs your heater doesn’t have much life left. Inconsistent heating, whether because the temperature is not consistent throughout your home or the heater varies in its ability to adequately maintain the desired temperature, might indicate it’s time for new heating installation. Another sign might be if your heating repairs have been increasing over the past year or two.
- Know your options. Especially if this is your first new heating installation, it’s important to learn about the many options for home heating available today. Innovations have made heating systems more energy efficient and effective, so it’s worth talking with a professional about what system will best suit your needs.
- Know who to hire. New heating installation is a big project, so you want to make sure you are getting expert service from a trusted team. Vet potential contractors to ensure they have the experience, knowledge, and customer satisfaction to back up their work.
