Even if you take impeccable care of your heating system, you can’t depend on it to heat your Kirkwood, Missouri, home forever. You don’t want to leave your family in the cold. That’s why it’s essential to know when you need to upgrade your heat pump or furnace. From uneven temperatures to increasing utility bills, watch for these three signs that you need a new heating system:
If you find that your heating system is breaking down frequently, it’s time to consider an upgrade. Although investing in a new heating system is costly, purchasing a heat pump can solve all of your HVAC problems in a cost-effective way. Since a heat pump provides both heating and cooling, you’ll only need to purchase one new system instead of two individual units.
Uneven temperatures can result from a number of issues, ranging from insufficient insulation and ductwork problems to an aging HVAC system. If you’ve already addressed the easy solutions, it’s time to talk with our team about replacing your old system.
Upgrading to an advanced new system like the Trane XV18 variable speed heat pump can maintain your ideal temperature throughout your home. This Energy Star-certified system can also keep your energy costs low throughout the year.
High Utility Bills
You might expect your utility bills to rise during the dead of winter or at the peak of summer. If your bills are increasing steadily over time, however, you can’t blame the weather alone.
Most heating systems gradually lose efficiency as they age, which can cost you. Fortunately, investing in a new heat pump gives you access to the latest energy-efficient technology while generating much more manageable utility bills.
