Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your Heating System
It’s been a brutally hot summer here in Las Vegas, but with the arrival of Fall comes relief as colder temperatures are right around the corner! If you aren’t confident that your heater is up to the task of keeping your family comfortable this winter, now is the perfect time to schedule an inspection and consider an upgrade. The experts at Yes! Air Conditioning and Heating are here to share three common signs that it may be time to replace your heating system before winter sets in:
- You notice temperature fluctuations from room to room
As a heating system ages, it tends to lose its ability to evenly distribute heat throughout the home, creating noticeable differences in temperature. Other factors that contribute to this issue can include old or damaged ductwork, insufficient insulation, and the placement of your thermostat. To identify the underlying issue and keep your home the perfect level of cozy, it’s best to bring in a professional to perform maintenance and run tests to determine if any elements of your heating system need to be repaired or replaced.
- Your heating system seems too noisy
New, overly loud, or unusual noises are a definite indicator that your furnace needs a check-up. Rattling, squeaking, and rumbling are common side effects of friction from worn out or loose parts and ignition issues, which typically mean that your heater is on its last leg. If an unexpected sound catches your ear, immediately turn off the system and keep it off until a professional is on hand to inspect the unit.
- Utility and repair bills have started to add up
It’s important to keep track of your energy usage and costs from year-to-year in order to spot when things are out of the ordinary. Taking into account weather and other environmental factors, unusual spikes or a gradual overall increase in your energy bill could be a sign that your system is not running as it should. As your furnace reaches the end of its lifespan, it will begin to lose efficiency and require more energy to function. From smart thermostats to industry-changing updates in insulation, there are a plethora of energy-efficient updates that can significantly reduce your energy costs and usage.
