Leave a bed furnace in 2022

It is officially the New Year, which means out with the old and in with the new! But is this the year you finally need to invest in a new heating and cooling system?

After spending a pretty penny on holiday gifts and parties, purchasing a new heating system may be the last thing on your list. However, it is necessary to face the reality that it may be time to upgrade your unit. You could be saving yourself thousands of dollars by replacing your heating system now instead of paying for costly repairs down the line.

Your next question is probably, “How do I know if it’s time to replace my heating system?” Well, the experts at C&C have got you covered! Here are some telltale signs that you may need to leave your current system in 2022.

Your Utility Bills Have Increased 

It is normal to see changes in your utility bill during winter due to your heating system working a little harder to heat your home. However, if you notice a dramatic spike in your energy bills, your system may have decreased efficiency due to wear and tear over time.

Strange Noises

Every sound that comes from your furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner is not always a cause for concern. However, if you hear loud bangs, grinding, grating, and whistling noises consistently, your system may need additional TLC. Sometimes, this may mean that your system needs a repair, but it can also signal that it needs to be replaced. Schedule an appointment with an expert technician so that they can diagnose the problem and create an action plan.

You are Spending a lot of Money on Repairs

Does it seem like every time you look, you are shoveling out money to get your heating and cooling system repaired? Regular maintenance is necessary and recommended, but if you spend a significant amount on repairs, it may be time to invest that money into a replacement. This way, you will get the most out of your budget and have the most comfortable home possible.

Your Unit is Getting Older

The Department of Energy recommends replacing your HVAC system after ten years for maximum efficiency, although newer units may last up to 15 years. If your unit is at that 8-10+ year mark, it may be time to think about replacing it with a newer and more efficient version.

If these signs sound all too familiar, a new system may be in your near future. Don’t wait until your heating system completely fails this winter. Instead, give the experts at C&C a call at 732-860-2660 to schedule your appointment today!
