It’s always a good idea to begin planning to upgrade your heating system before you need it. That way, you can do your research and be confident in your decision rather than being rushed because your furnace or boiler failed.

Whatever the reason you’re looking to replace your heating system, you can trust the trained, experienced service technicians to provide expert boiler and Soutfurnace installation, along with maintenance and repairs to help keep it running smoothly.

Boiler and furnace installation process

Heating systems are not one-size-fits-all. That’s why installing a new heating system in your home begins with getting an estimate for the work. One of our service technicians will go over your home and what you need for heating. For example, you may have built a home addition or added finished space in your home in the attic or basement. In that case, you’ll need a more powerful furnace or boiler to manage the increased demand. They’ll also inspect where the heating system will be installed and determine whether other work such as ductwork repair needs to be done.

Most heating system installations can be performed in one to two days. Once the installation is complete, we’ll do a thorough testing of it and go over things with you to make sure everything is done to your satisfaction.

Signs you need a new heating system

In many cases, repairing your furnace or boiler is the most sensible option. When your heating system is seven years old or younger, repairs are likely to be much simpler and less expensive than a full replacement. If you’re contemplating a move in the near future, repairs may be a more suitable solution than investing in an entirely new heating system. Depending on your budget, sometimes it just isn’t feasible to purchase and install something brand-new.

Reasons to consider replacement

The age of your heating system. If your furnace or boiler is a decade old, it may be better to consider replacing it. A poorly maintained heating system can quickly break down and leave you without warmth during the harshest winter months.

Increasing repair bills. As your boiler and furnace age, the need for repairs becomes more frequent and expensive. Neglecting proper furnace maintenance increases the probability of this happening quickly. Continuing to invest in repairs for your heating system will ultimately prove to be a bad decision. A good rule is that if your furnace repairs are costing half (or more) of what it would cost to replace it, replacing is a better long-term investment in your comfort, your energy costs, and your home’s value.

Your heating system’s efficiency. As furnaces and boilers age, their efficiency declines dramatically – especially if they are not serviced regularly. The efficiency of your heating system might be as low as 60%. That means for every dollar you spend on propane or heating oil, only 60 cents of it goes toward heating your home. The other 40 cents are wasted. Installing a new heating system has numerous benefits, most notably the energy efficiency rating of up to 98%. From day one you’ll start saving money on your heating bills, enabling you to enjoy these lower costs for many years.
