How to know When It Is Time for an upgrade


January 13, 2021

Is your heating system struggling to pull its weight this year? It could be time to upgrade your equipment! There are a few things to consider when deciding whether or not an upgrade is necessary, and we’d like to share them with you now.

System Age

A lot can change over time, including the technology used in heating equipment. If you’re using a furnace or boiler from more than a decade ago, you could be missing out on some of those advancements, including better comfort control and overall coverage.

Frequency of Repairs

A car is considered totaled when the cost of repairs exceeds the car’s value. This same train of thought can be applied to your heating system equipment! When you start throwing money at your heating equipment to keep it running and it’s exceeding the amount you could spend on a new heating system, total it!

Weak Airflow

Although this can be a result of dusty vents or dirty and clogged air filters, weak airflow can also come about when the equipment has been in service for many years. If regular maintenance doesn’t help, an upgrade certainly will.

 Heating Costs

This is a big one – does it cost you more this year to run your heating system than it did last year? Or the year before? If your heating costs are increasing over time even with proper maintenance, the age of the system could be causing a drop in energy efficiency. Luckily, modern heating systems boast much higher efficiency ratings!

You deserve the best in home heating comfort – and that just might mean a brand new heating system installed in your home! At Stafford Oil & Propane we work with the top manufacturers of high-efficiency heating equipment. Call or contact us online today for more information!

"Our household loves Stafford. The employees are friendly, prices are fair, and service has always been excellent. We call when we need an oil delivery (rather than auto delivery) and they've always made sure to get us on the schedule right away. The couple times our furnace stopped running they were able to get us in same-day without issue which is a huge relief. We use them for maintenance on both our furnace and central AC unit as well and have never had any complaints. Highly recommend them for your oil and HVAC needs!"
