This may sound obvious, but trust us—a lot of homeowners tolerate a pretty subpar heating experience. Why? Well, oftentimes the decline of a system and its heating output is gradual. You get used to the reduced performance, you write it off as a heater struggling on a particularly cold night, etc. There is a breaking point, though. If you can’t explain a subpar heating performance any longer, especially if you have been diligent in scheduling routine heating maintenance, then it’s time to consider a new system.
In fact, your heater may be working just fine, but you might still want to replace it. Why? Because it’s not the right heater for your own personal preferences! For instance, you may dream of improving your comfort by utilizing a ductless mini split system.
