Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your Home Heating Unit

Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your Home Heating Unit

Are your bills getting out of control since the temperatures outside dropped? Does your house start squeaking and creaking when the heat kicks on?

While it may seem like a money-saver to just make quick fixes to your old unit rather than investing in a new one, it may be costing you more than you think!

Check out these signs it might be time to upgrade your heating unit.

  • Your heating unit has started its own percussion section. Has your heating unit started squeaking? Does it make worrisome rumbles, upsetting booms, or annoying clanks? Strange noises coming from your furnace are a good sign that you should start shopping for a replacement.
  • Your home is too cold. And too hot. And too cold. Have you noticed rooms that are much warmer than others? Is one bedroom perpetually cold while the rest seem fine? This can be a sign that you’re having issues with your air ducts. Heating systems are designed to evenly distribute warm air throughout your home. Uneven temperatures can be a sign that it is time for an upgrade. Have your Snyder tech do a thorough inspection of your ducts first to see if they simply need to be cleaned or sealed.
  • Your thermostat remembers when bell-bottom jeans were in style – the first time. Thermostats have come a long way since their original inception. Programmable thermostats can help you not only keep your home comfortable, but can also save you energy as well. If your thermostat has not been upgraded in a while, a new one may be a great investment.
  • Humidity is getting you down. If your home has humidity problems, or problems with air that is far too dry, your furnace or ducts might be the culprit. Malfunctioning equipment can leave air too humid in the summer and far too dry in the winter, which can irritate sinuses. However, a new heating system can help reduce dry air, leaving you to breathe easier. Fun fact: It can also assist with the preservation of porous materials like woodwork, furniture, or musical instruments.
  • Your heating system has more than ten years of service under its belt. According to Energy Star, heating systems that are over ten years old operate at around 55 to 70 percent efficiency, whereas new systems can achieve up to 99 percent efficiency. Your furnace may still work well enough, but investing in a new system would bring you big savings in the long run.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
