With cold weather fast approaching, it’s natural to think about making sure your Andover heating system is in good shape for the coming winter. Most of the time, that just means getting a tuneup, but if your system is getting older or you have some concerns about its performance, it may be time to consider getting a new heating system.
Upgrading for Efficiency
Especially if your current heating system is more than 10 years old, it can be worth upgrading to a newer model. That’s because the systems now available are so much more energy efficient than their predecessors that you can sometimes cut your heating costs dramatically by switching to a new system.
To determine if that’s the best course of action for you, you’ll have to calculate your current heating costs, projected heating costs with a new system and balance that against the cost of the installation. But more often than not, you’ll find that the new system will quickly pay for itself, making it a sound investment.q
Eliminate Frequent Repairs
If your heating system requires even minor repairs on a regular basis, it’s probably time to invest in a new system. Having a professional come out that often is costly, and even if the repairs themselves aren’t that complex, a system in this state probably isn’t operating at peak energy efficiency. Basically, that means you’re paying extra to heat your home and extra in repair bills, both of which could be eliminated by installing a new system.
Your current system will also probably break down completely relatively soon, meaning you’ll have to make that investment in the next year or two anyway. By upgrading now, you can make the same investment without paying for a year or two of repairs and higher than necessary energy bills.
