Benefits of Heating Upgrades
If you’re looking for ways to enhance the performance of your current heating system instead of replacing, heating upgrades are a great choice. Some of the numerous benefits include:
- Reduced carbon footprint. Do your part for the environment, by reducing energy consumption through heating upgrades.
- Increased comfort. In homes where certain rooms are always too hot or too cold, or are difficult to keep warm, heating upgrades can make uncomfortable areas more livable.
- Cost savings. Energy efficient upgrades can save through reduced energy bills.
- Longer equipment lifespan. Reduce your heating load, endure less repairs, and decrease the wear and tear on heating equipment, effectively increasing equipment lifespan.
- Added value. Heating upgrades add value to your home, whether you intend to stay or sell, with many paying for themselves within the first year or two.
5 Ways to Upgrade Your Heating System
- Replace your thermostat. Programmable or smart thermostats, provide instant savings, regulating energy usage according to preset temperature settings. Program the unit to lower the temperature of your home between 7 and 10 degrees for times you are at work, or asleep, and enjoy savings of around 10 percent on your monthly heating bill.
- Boost insulation levels. Adding another layer of insulation in your attic can help reduce heat loss in the winter, and heat gain in the summer, working for your home year round.
- Upgrade your ductwork. Energy saving, seamless ductwork can prevent the loss of conditioned air, while increasing the airflow to all the rooms in your home.
- Seal air leaks. Leaks around doors and windows allow heat to escape, and cold air to enter, increasing the burden on your heating system, and energy costs. Test for leaks on a windy day, using tissue paper, and seal gaps and cracks using caulking or weatherstripping as needed.
- Ductless mini-splits.For additions, attic conversions, or other spaces where it’s impractical to run ductwork, ductless mini-splits are a great alternative.
