Reasons to Consider a Heating Upgrade Now
With the hottest days of summer finally upon us here in the Massachusetts South Shore, heating your home may not be the first thing on your mind this season. However, now is an excellent time to consider upgrading your current heating system for a new, energy-efficient, and powerful home boiler or furnace to experience a more comfortable winter season once the cold weather rolls in once again. Luckily, our heating experts here at Albert Culver are skilled at quickly replacing and upgrading old heating systems for new models. Keep reading to learn the top signs that your heating system is due for an upgrade and the main things you should consider before scheduling your replacement service.
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 Massachusetts winter here on the South Shore, don’t panic. We’ve outlined a few signs to help you to 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 oil 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 coming 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
Uneven heating from room to room. Although we can predict that heat will rise, likely causing your upper floors to 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.

What to Consider for a New Heating Installation in Massachusetts
Have you decided that upgrading your heating system this season is best for you and your family? The heating installation professionals at Albert Culver are pleased to help you stay warm and comfortable and save more money on energy costs with new heating equipment. But, before you request your installation service from us, be sure to consider a few key things to help us understand how to upgrade your total home comfort.
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 method of heating your home was built to use rather than converting 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 to heat your home? Our technicians will install a heating system that uses the same fuel. 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 or ductless cooling system as well. This will promote better energy efficiency overall and make your fuel last longer, helping you save more in the long run.
