Signs Your Heating System Needs to Be Replaced
Have you lived in the same Holden Beach or Ocean Isle Beach house for over 10 years? Was it an older home when you bought it? We love older homes, but they are also the ones that most often need a heating system replacement.
A quality heating system has about 10 to 15 years of useful life in it. If you have an outdated system, give us a phone call. We’ll give you our best, unbiased opinion on whether or not it’s time to upgrade. If we don’t think you’ll need it, we won’t recommend it.
If your heating unit has exhibited any of these signs, call us:
Loud noises may mean parts are coming loose and rattling inside, or that something has gotten trapped inside. Either way, it means something is wrong and should get looked at soon.
Higher Energy Bills
Your system may be working harder than it needs to accomplish its mission. This extra output could be because of age or an issue from an overdue maintenance check.
A sound heating system can last about 15 years before it starts to go downhill. Most years past this age are living on borrowed time. If your system is more than 15 years old, consider upgrading to a new heating system.
Buildup of Dirt
Any debris, dust, or dirt buildup in your system can cause potential damage and unnecessary wear and tear. The buildup can cause your system to work harder, raise your energy bill, and run down your system.
If your system isn’t keeping things warm consistently, this is a surefire sign that it’s not working correctly. Inconsistent heating could be due to a blockage or a malfunction.
What Type of Heating System Is Right for Your Ocean Isle Beach Home?
Need a heating installation? We have options for you! Depending on your home and preferences, you could benefit from our HVAC services and installation of any of the following Ocean Isle Beach heating systems:
This type is the most common heating system in North Carolina homes. It works by pushing heated air through a duct system in your Holden Beach or Ocean Isle Beach, NC, house. They are very cost-effective and energy-efficient, especially newer systems. The cost depends on usage, energy rates in your area, and electricity prices.
Boilers and Radiant Heating Systems
Boilers work by warming water and moving heat through your Ocean Isle Beach home through a radiator. The water gets heated using propane, electricity, or natural gas. Radiators can either be traditional (pipes out in the open), baseboard heaters (pipes underneath the floor), or aluminum panels in the ceiling, walls, or floors.
These units absorb heat from sources found outside. These sources include a body of water, the air, or the ground. The heat pump uses refrigerant to absorb the heat from these sources, then transfers it inside by using a heat exchanger. These types of systems can be more expensive upfront than traditional systems. However, in the long run, they translate into substantial energy savings, especially in temperate climates like Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. Ask us how your heat pump system can be used as a cooling service too!
