When a customer calls Weltman Home Services and reports to one of our customer service representatives that their furnace is creaking and squeaking when they turn their heat on it might be time for us to set up an appointment with one of our Home Comfort Advisors to provide you with a FREE estimate on a new heating system replacement.
We find at times that many homeowners hang on to old systems in an attempt to save money, making patches and paying for quick fixes along the way. But if your system is over a decade it might be costing you more in repairs and if overall energy cost.
Is your Heating System is 10 Years Old?
If so, the efficiency of your older furnace and boiler system ranges from 56% to 70%. Modern heating systems, however, can achieve up to 99% efficiency. A new, energy efficient system converts nearly all the fuel to useful heat for your home. Home energy efficiency upgrades and a new high-efficiency heating system can even cut your bills in half.
Is your Furnace is Making Funny Noises
If your furnace is making loud or unusual noises, it’s time for a tune-up, and possibly a replacement. Rumbling, booming, squeaking, and clanking are all sounds that need to be inspected immediately. The issue could be as simple as a pilot light adjustment, ignition issues, friction caused by worn out parts, or parts that have loosened over time. However, a series of broken parts and poor connections could spell the need for a new system.
Are your Ducts Dated and Dusty?
Do some rooms in your home feel too hot, while others are too cold? Duct problems could be the culprit. Efficient and well-designed duct systems distribute air properly throughout your home without leaking to keep all rooms at a comfortable temperature.
Another common duct problem is dust. Leaky ducts can pull particles and air from attics, crawl spaces, and basements and distribute them throughout your house. Sealing ducts may be a solution.
Does your Home Have Humidity Problems?
Outdated or malfunctioning equipment and leaky ductwork can cause the air to be too dry in the winter or too humid in the summer.
A new, efficient heating system can help reduce dry winter air that can that irritates sinuses. It can even help preserve the quality of your home’s porous materials like wood, including furniture, woodwork, wood floors, pianos, and other musical instruments
Is your Thermostat Is Outdated and Looks Like This?
If you leave home for long periods and you do not have a programmable thermostat, consider installing one when you upgrade your system.
Have your current thermostat evaluated for compatibility issues if your HVAC system is struggling to regulate your home’s temperature.
If you have answered YES to 2 of these 5 questions it is time for you to set an appointment with a Weltman Home Services Home Comfort Advisor who will not only provide you with a FREE estimate but will also educate you on all the new home heating technologies.
