A Quick Guide to Upgrading a Heating System

Your whole-home heating system is vital to your comfort, and has been there for you for years. But of course, any system’s time will come. The experts at DB Heating & Cooling, Inc have all of the information you need to know about when and how to upgrade your whole-house heater.

It’s never too late or too early

Worried that it’s too late in the season to replace your broken heating system? The longer you run your worn-down system, the more it will cost you. High energy bills and the risk of a sudden system breakdown are both great reasons to schedule replacement ASAP.

Wondering if you’re scheduling a replacement for your comfort system too early, before the heating season even begins? A technician would be happy to help you upgrade at any time, and they may have more availability now anyway. Besides, you don’t want to forget to do it by the time winter comes around again!

You should check the qualifications of your heating contractor

If you have a contractor who’s not qualified to install new heating systems, you might not get the efficiency and performance you expect. When you’re ready to upgrade your heater, check online reviews and experience to ensure your technicians are able to advise you and install the system correctly and, more importantly, safely.

Know about sizing and efficiency

One of the most important factors in selecting a furnace is that it is of the right size for your home. If it isn’t the right size, it’s likely to run into problems early on in its lifespan. So, you can (and should) look for a system with a SEER of over 90 percent. But if the system is the wrong size, it won’t run very efficiently at all. A quality technician will look at more than the size of your home; technicians should also pay attention to factors like insulation and window placement when choosing the furnace for you.
