Are you starting to make a Wishlist for the things you want this Christmas? Maybe it’s that new perfume, or that power tool you’ve been eyeballing at the hardware store. But what about your heating unit? There’s nothing quite like the gift of a warm home. Many people might find it odd to wish for an HVAC unit for the holidays. However, it’s truly the gift that keeps on giving – and is well worth it! Here are 4 signs you should add a heating unit to your Christmas Wishlist.

1. Old Age

If your heating unit is no longer working efficiently, some of its components are worn out, and you’re experiencing more repairs lately, then it may be time to just invest in a system upgrade. You don’t want to risk your heating unit breaking down completely when you need it most this winter. Most heating units can last anywhere from 10-20 years. If your system is more than a decade old, consider adding this to your Christmas Wishlist!

2. Frequent Repairs Are Needed

Frequent repairs aren’t only inconvenient, but they get expensive. Overtime, those costs start to add up. If you’re finding that you see your HVAC technician more than your own family lately, it’s time to look into upgrading your heating system.

3. Increased Utility Bills

What a gift… bills! When you’re trying to save money for the holiday, this can be tough to do when your utility bills are skyrocketing. It could mean that your heating unit isn’t as efficient as it once was, or maybe it’s lacking maintenance and needs a good tune-up. Whatever the cause may be, increased utility bills are never fun. Contact a professional to find out the cause of your increasing utility bills. If repair is required, your unit is old, and that repair is going to cost 50% of what it would be to just replace it, then you should consider if a replacement would be most cost-effective for you.

4. You Feel Unsafe

Your safety is a top priority, and really you can’t put a price tag on your safety! You might find a carbon monoxide leak, frayed wiring, or another issue with your heating equipment that has left you feeling a bit uneasy. Regardless of what it is, you should replace your unit immediately if you ever feel unsafe.
