Is it Time to Replace Your Heating System?

October 18, 2018

If your heating equipment is more than 20 years old, it’s a question you really should be asking yourself! You don’t want to head into the heating season with equipment that’s faulty, unreliable and outdated, so be sure you take notice if your heating system appears to have seen better days.

Here are a few things to look out for when assessing your heating system’s health and ability to push through another year:

Frequent Repairs

Normal wear and tear happens, and regular tune-ups or repairs are typical. It’s when you begin to notice that the frequency with which you’re calling for repairs has increased that you might have a problem. If the cost to keep your equipment running begins to exceed the cost of an upgrade, you should begin checking out the options available to you!

Uneven Temperatures

If you find yourself adjusting the temperatures in your home because some rooms stay colder than others, and it isn’t an issue with the thermostat, your heating system’s efficiency may be declining – a common sign of old age in equipment. Additionally, the problem could be that a register, air filter or the ducts have become blocked and are impeding airflow. If you’re unsure of the cause of uneven temperatures in your home, call Tomasso Bros. for help!

Unfamiliar Noises & Smells

When you have your heating system for a long time, the noises and even some smells that come with it often become “background noise” in your home. It’s when clanging, buzzing, or other sounds and smells stand out more so than usual that you should start inspecting your equipment for signs of needed repairs, or replacement.
