How Do I Know If I Need a New Furnace?

With winter right around the corner, many people are thinking about home heating. You want to be sure your furnace is ready for the cold weather ahead. Maybe last winter, your furnace gave you some signs that it needed repair or replacement. Or maybe your furnace is getting on in years, and replacement is becoming inevitable. Regardless, many people want some solid answers when it comes to the question, “How do I know if I need a new furnace?” The Better Business Bureau offers consumers some of the top signs that they should strongly consider replacement.

Here are 5 signs it may be time for you to replace the furnace in your home:

  1. Increased utility bills. If you’re noticing that your energy bills are on the rise every year (outside of usual increases in costs), then it could be time for a replacement. However, if you haven’t had furnace maintenance in a while, that should be where you start. It may need a good cleaning. If energy consumption doesn’t improve, your system could be failing.
  2. Soaring repair costs. If you’re maintaining your furnace on an annual basis, yet you’re still facing frequent repairs, your furnace could be on its way out. This is especially true the older your furnace gets. It can become more cost-effective to replace your furnace rather than continue to spend money on repairs.
  3. Overly dry air. In the good old days, heating systems kept home humidity levels low. As a result, people were faced with dry skin, static electricity, creaking floorboards and furniture, and respiratory ailments. Modern equipment adds moisture into the air, which helps with all of those concerns.
  4. Unusual furnace noises. You should never ignore when you hear clanging, rattling or popping noises coming from your furnace. In fact, that could be a sign of pressure buildup or other dangerous issues. Any time your furnace is making odd noises, you should call a professional right away.
  5. Temperature inconsistencies. You may find you need to frequently adjust your thermostat, that your home takes longer than normal to heat up, or simply that you’re never comfortable enough. While it could be an issue with the thermostat, you should get it checked out, especially if your furnace is older or has needed frequent repairs.

Heating the Sunroom in Your Connecticut Home

Nobody likes seeing the warmer weather come to a close. Even with the beauty of fall all around us, it serves as a reminder that soon, the air will be chilly, the snow will be flying, and family fun in the sunroom will be over until summer comes back again. But did you know that you don’t have to give your sunroom up when Old Man Winter comes to call? At Degree Heating & Cooling, we can make your sunroom a part of your home all year long.

Many times, sunrooms are built on to homes as additions, or have been open porches that homeowners have decided to enclose. As a result, these areas of the home are usually not added to the ductwork system, and that means they don’t benefit from the home’s heating system. Adding ductwork to these areas is often impractical or cost-prohibitive, and sometimes not even possible. Because of this, many homeowners choose to close their sunrooms off during the chillier winter months, leaving the space unused for months.

You should know, however, that heating your sunroom is an option.

Even without ductwork, you can keep your sunroom toasty – and usable – during the winter, without having to rely on noisy, clunky and sometimes dangerous space heaters. The answer is as simple as installing a ductless system. When you choose to add ductless to your sunroom, you’re essentially turning it into an all-season room. That’s because you’ll get the heat you need during the winter months from your ductless system, but an added bonus is that you’ll also get cooling during the summer months.

Ductless systems are simple for your Degree technician to install, because they don’t require ductwork like traditional systems. There are two parts to a ductless system – an indoor and outdoor unit – and they’re connected with pipes, wires and drainage that require only a small hole. There is no major construction needed, and generally installation takes place between one and two days. So when you choose ductless for your sunroom, you’ll have the space up and running in no time – giving your family more room to enjoy.

Degree will help you with your ductless heating needs this season.

Fall is a great time to install the ductless system that will convert your sunroom into an all-season room, and Degree Heating & Cooling can help. We provide our customers with Mitsubishi Electric ductless heating systems. They offer you the heating comfort you’d expect from a traditional system, right in your sunroom. Your ductless heating system will provide you with the climate control you want, as well as energy efficiency, good looks, quiet function and improved, year-round comfort.

Heating the sunroom in your Connecticut home is easy, when you choose ductless from Degree Heating and Cooling. You can trust us to meet your needs. Just give us a call at (860) 633-6122, and one of our friendly associates will be happy to assist you with your ductless heating system.
