4 Signs Your Heating System Needs Replacement

How did your heating system do last winter? If you have started to worry that your heating system may not make it through another chilly Massachusetts winter, don’t panic. We’ve outlined a few signs to help you gain an understanding of whether your system needs a replacement. Check out the list below to see if your heating system would benefit from a replacement from our installation experts.

  • Sign #1: Increased fuel usage:

    As your heating system ages, its efficiency will start to decline. Consistently increased fuel usage (without extreme weather or household size increase) is a clear symptom of decreased fuel economy that could benefit from an upgrade.

  • Sign #2: Foreign sounds or odors:

    If you start to hear abnormal humming, banging, or clunking from your heating system, it could be time for a replacement. Uncommon odors can be another red flag.

  • Sign #3: Uneven heating from room to room:

    Although we can predict that heat will rise, and, therefore, your upper floors may be warmer, if heat is not reaching all areas of your home equally, that can indicate the decline of your equipment’s operation capabilities.

  • Sign #4: Repairs needed more frequently:

    Naturally, your heating equipment will suffer from more breakdowns as the years go by. Instead of spending money on recurring repair visits, you will get more bang for your buck by investing in a new high-efficiency system.

Benefits of Installing New High-Efficiency Heating Equipment

There are many benefits for South Shore homeowners to upgrade to a new oil heating system. Homeowners experience greater savings and comfort with a new, more efficient heating system as well as improved indoor air quality, longer equipment lifespan, and increased resale value for future buyers.
