December 18th, 2023

For most people, it’s human nature to want to keep something around for as long as it’s running. Whether it’s a car or a computer, so long as it’s still working, you’re willing to keep it around even though its performance isn’t nearly as good as it used to be.

When you think about it, it doesn’t make much sense to keep a gas-guzzling car that’s always in the shop around. Or a computer that’s so slow you spend more time doing basic tasks than you would with a new one. The same can be said for a heating system. 

Heating systems are one of those things where you’re making do with it even though your home comfort is suffering and your utility bills are going up and up. Furnaces have had some remarkable advances in technology in the last 10 years or so that make getting a new one especially appealing. 

So how do you know when to replace an old furnace vs repairing it? Let’s take a look at when a heating repair isn’t worth it and it’s time to pull the plug on that old, outdated furnace.

Is your heating system ready for the holidays? The best thing you can do to make sure there won’t be any hiccups in its performance is to schedule maintenance. Homeowners in Vidalia, GA sometimes think they can skip out on heating tune-ups because they don’t use their heater as often as their air conditioners. 

However, this simply isn’t true. Heat pumps, furnaces, and boilers require annual heater maintenance to keep them running at peak performance. Scheduling annual maintenance is the best way to help ensure that your heating system won’t fail when you need it most–during a holiday gathering, when a cold snap strikes, or when you’re hosting family for an extended visit. 

There are other things you can do to make sure your heating system is ready for the holidays and hopefully avoid the embarrassment of not having a warm and cozy home for your family and guests. Let’s go over three additional things you should do besides scheduling maintenance.

For many decades, central HVAC systems in homes stayed pretty much the same. An air conditioner and a furnace connected to a network of ducts reaching out to vents around the house. A single powerful blower sent the heated or cooled air into the ductwork to provide an even spread of comfort. 

Although this type of HVAC system worked well for years, there was room for improvement. Such as finding a way to remove ducts from the equation. Today, we have the option for ductless air conditioning and ductless heating in Riverdale, GA through ductless mini split heat pumps. Using a ductless system in a home has several advantages, and one of the most appealing is that it can save the homeowner money.
