4 Signs Your Heating System Needs Replacement
How did your heating system do last winter? If you have started to worry that your heating system may not make it through another chilly Pennsylvania winter, don’t panic. We outlined a few signs to help you understand if your system needs a replacement. Check out the list below to see if your heating system would benefit from a replacement from our installation experts.
- Sign #1: Increased fuel usage. As your heating system ages, its efficiency will start to decline. Consistently increased fuel usage (without extreme weather or household size increase) is a clear symptom of decreased fuel economy that could benefit from an upgrade.
- Sign #2: Foreign sounds or odors. If you start to hear abnormal humming, banging, or clunking from your heating system, it could be time for a replacement. Uncommon odors can be another red flag.
- Sign #3: Uneven heating from room to room. Although we can predict that heat will rise, and, therefore, your upper floors may be warmer, if heat is not reaching all areas of your home equally, that can indicate the decline of your equipment’s operation capabilities.
- Sign #4: Repairs needed more frequently. Naturally, your heating equipment will suffer from more breakdowns as the years go by. Instead of spending money on recurring repair visits, you will get more bang for your buck by investing in a new high-efficiency system.
Benefits of Installing New High-Efficiency Heating Equipment
There are many benefits for Pennsylvania homeowners to upgrade to a new oil, propane, or natural gas heating system. With a new, more efficient heating system, homeowners experience more savings and comfort, improved indoor air quality, longer equipment lifespan, and increased resale value for future buyers.

What to Consider for a New Heating Installation in Central Pennsylvania
Have you decided that upgrading your heating system this season is best for you and your family’s Central PA home? The heating installation professionals at Eshenaurs are pleased to help you stay warm and comfortable while saving money on energy costs with new heating equipment. But, before you request your installation service with us, consider a few key things to help us understand how to upgrade your total home comfort before the coldest days of fall and winter are here to stay.
Do You Currently Run a Furnace or a Boiler?
If you already have a furnace, your home’s ductwork is prepared for your system to be replaced with another furnace. If you have a boiler, the copper piping will work with another boiler. It’s much more cost-effective to stick with the same heating method than to convert the heat-distribution system.
Do You Have a Manufacturer Preference?
If you were satisfied with your old equipment (or if you weren’t!), take note of the brand name. Let our technicians know! While they are experts at equipping your home with an excellently manufactured heating system, they are always happy to accommodate your home comfort equipment requests.
How Much Heating Capacity Do You Need?
A larger furnace or boiler can heat more zones (or floors) of your home. A small apartment may only need the furnace or boiler capacity for one zone, while a large home may need the capacity for two or three. If you’re not sure, contact our energy experts for a consultation!
Consider Your Fuel Source & Efficiency
Do you currently use oil or gas to heat your home? Our technicians will install a heating system that uses the same fuel. In fact, our techs are skilled in installing heating oil, natural gas, and propane heating systems to accommodate your individual heating fuel preferences. With your new heating system in place, its improved efficiency is going to make a significant impact on lowering your annual fuel bills.
Brainstorm Other Necessary Upgrades
Leverage your buying power by upgrading multiple systems at the same time. When you get a new heating unit, consider a new central AC or ductless cooling system. This will promote better overall energy efficiency, helping you save more in the long run. Though the weather outside may be cooling down, it’s never too early to begin preparing your whole home for your complete comfort year-round. Plus, some mini-split ductless AC systems can also provide supplemental heating in the wintertime, making them invaluable to Central PA residents in every season.
