4 Signs Your Heating System Needs Replacement

How did your heating system perform over the past winter? If you have started to worry that your heating system may not make it through another chilly Massachusetts heating season, don’t panic. 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 oil 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 coming 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.
