The nights are starting to get colder – is your heating system in good shape? Here in Minnesota, a safe, comfortable and efficient home heating system is essential. These are a few questions you’ll want to ask yourself this winter.
Home Heating Assessment:
How old is my heating system?
Heating systems that are over 14-20 years old may need to be replaced. After a certain age, your heating system is more likely to break down and will not work as efficiently as newer, energy-efficient models.
Is Your Fuel Bill High?
A high heating bill can be a sign that you need to replace your heating system. Over time, your heating system won’t be as energy-efficient.
Is your home unevenly heated?
Is your bedroom warmer than your living room? An unevenly heated home is a sign of an inefficient heating system.
Have you repaired your heating equipment in the last three years?
If your heating system is prone to breakdowns, it may be more cost-effective to replace the system than to continue to schedule heating repairs.
When was your last heating system maintenance checkup?
Your heating system should be checked once a year to ensure that it is working efficiently! Regular maintenance will help prevent breakdowns and keep your system running longer.
Is your furnace noisy?
If your furnace is making weird noises, there might be something wrong with it. It’s best to schedule a service visit to determine the root cause behind your noisy furnace issue.
