Before investing in a new heating system for your home, there are multiple elements to consider. Following is an overview of the most pertinent factors.

The age of your heating system. If your furnace or boiler has been around for 10 years, it’s probably time to consider replacing it – after all, you don’t want a poorly maintained heating system unexpectedly malfunctioning and leaving you in the cold during wintertime.

Increasing repair bills. As your boiler or furnace get older, the need for repairs starts to become increasingly frequent and costly. If you don’t maintain them properly, this process could happen much faster than anticipated. Investing in further repairs for your heating system could be a case of throwing good money after bad. A good rule of thumb is that if the repair costs exceed half the price of replacing your heating system, then replacement may be a better option long-term with regard to comfort, energy bills and boosting your home’s value.

Your heating system’s efficiency. With age, furnaces and boilers become drastically less efficient. In fact, he efficiency of your heating system could even drop as low as 60%! This is especially possible if your heating system has not been properly maintained. Put simply, for every dollar you invest in propane or heating oil, 40 cents are wasted while a mere 60 cents go toward actually warming your home. Not only will you reap the advantages of energy efficiency with a modern heating system, but it can save you money in the long run! You could enjoy up to 98% efficiency, which means much lower energy bills. With this newfound financial freedom, you’ll be able to appreciate these reduced costs for many years ahead.
