What To Do
Look, if your home heating system isn’t keeping your house warm, you need to call someone to get it fixed.
Almost every unit, no matter how old, can be fixed. However, there comes a point when a very old system becomes a good candidate for replacement.
Newer systems are more energy efficient than the older models. Although the cost of a new system will be steep, you will save money on your monthly natural gas, oil or electric bill with a new unit.
If you are a candidate for a new HVAC system, there are plenty of manufacturers who are making good, dependable, energy-efficient systems. Some of the most popular manufacturers include Trane, Bryant, Carrier, Lennox and Rheem.
