Your heating equipment has ways of letting you know when it’s getting tired. Does your furnace or boiler require frequent repairs? Is it more than 10 years old? Do you have rooms in your home that are too hot or too cold? Are your energy bills rising?
If you’ve noticed any of these of issues in your home, it may be time to upgrade your equipment. Upgrading to a high-efficiency product will provide the best return on your investment and offer the greatest value for your comfort and energy savings. Here are some of the benefits:
Top Benefits of Upgrading to High-Efficiency Heating Systems:
Energy-efficient equipment produces more and uses less. Newer heating systems are almost 99% efficient, which means your furnace or boiler won’t have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable. The result: savings on your annual heating bill. Energy.gov offers a handy tool to predict just how much those savings can amount to.
Less Air Pollution
You may be surprised to know how much pollution is generated from the average home, and how much of it is created from heating sources. Purchasing equipment with an ENERGY STAR® label helps protect the environment by reducing the amount of pollution your home creates.
Increased Property Value
Selling your home is a lot easier when you have new heating systems in place. Especially in colder climates, buyers want to know that a potential home is safe and that they won’t be overspending to keep it warm and comfortable.
