Signs You Need to Replace Your Heating System
Wondering if it’s time to replace instead of repair? Here are a few good reasons to take the next step and replace your heating system.
- Constant Repairs: Whether from old age or poor design, constant repairs suggest you need an upgrade.
- Poor Efficiency: Tired of burning way too much fuel? Upgrade to something more efficient.
- Can’t Keep You Comfortable: Too small, too old, or maybe just pushing out air that’s too dry, it’s time to replace any heating system that leaves you uncomfortable.
- Pricey Repair Quote: If repairs are going to cost you big, why waste that money on a temporary fix when upgrading makes more sense?

Why Choose a Heat Pump vs. a Furnace?
So, you’re thinking about installing a heat pump, either as an addition to your existing HVAC solution or as a complete replacement of an old furnace.
Heat pumps are shockingly efficient; a highly efficient furnace might hit 95% efficiency, 98% if it’s electric, whereas a heat pump can achieve heating equal to 300% of the energy you put into it. Whether you’re interested in saving the environment, your wallet, or both, it’s a great improvement.
If you find the intense dry heat of your furnace unpleasant in the winter months, a heat pump will be a welcome change. The air produced by a heat pump is warm but not hot, and naturally more humid and “normal” than what a furnace puts out. No more dry skin, eyes, or nose when it gets really cold.
Finally, a heat pump doesn’t just improve your winter efficiency; it can reverse in the summer to provide highly efficient cooling just as easily as it provides heat. A two-for-one for saving you money.

What to Consider When Buying a New Heat Pump
You’ll want to take into account a few factors so you can give our team the best chance of leaving you satisfied with your purchase. Heat pumps come at a few different levels of efficiency and throughput, with improvements in each costing you more for the initial installation.
You may also want to consider whether you want to rely on a heat pump as your sole source of heat, or add a furnace as backup in case it gets too cold for your heat pump to keep your home as warm as you’d like it. You may also go ahead and consider the same for your cooling in the summer.
Finally, if you’re considering a ductless system, plan how you want to handle your interior units. A ductless heat pump can give you room-by-room temperature control, if you want it, but you’ll need interior units for each.
