Top Reasons to Upgrade Your Heating Equipment Before Winter
The first day of fall has come and gone, which means winter is just around the corner! Homeowners on the Cape know how brutal the cold months in New England can be. Is your home’s boiler or furnace up to the challenge of below-freezing temperatures? If the answer is anywhere between “No way” and “I’m not sure…” now is the time to consider an upgrade.
Investing in a high-efficiency heating system delivers high rewards for years to come. Find out why adding a new heating system to your home is the easiest way to stay warm and save money this heating season:
1. Use less fuel
A heating system’s efficiency is measured by its annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating. This represents how much heat the system gives off and how much energy it takes to produce it. High-efficiency heating systems have an AFUE rating of 85% or higher. This means they use significantly less fuel to produce the heat you need.
2. Lower heating bills
Greater fuel economy means greater savings for you! Upgrading to a new high-efficiency heating system can help save up to 30% on your annual heating bills.
3. Improve safety and comfort
High-efficiency heating systems have the latest technology advancements to keep your home or business safe and warm. New systems are less likely to break down and leave you without heat.
4. Spend less on service costs
A lower risk for breakdowns means less money spent on repairs. As heating systems age they require more frequent service visits. Eventually, paying for repairs on an inefficient heating system just doesn’t make sense! A new upgrade will keep that money in your wallet.
5. Increase property value
Investing in a new heating system will pay off in the long run. Your family will enjoy lower bills and better comfort. If you decide to sell your home, newer equipment will help boost the value of your property.
