Heating System Replacement

70 Years of Heating Experience In the Philadelphia, PA Area

Having your heating system break down on you in the middle of winter is a headache that nobody wants to deal with. Your Philadelphia area home or business depends on your heating system in order to keep your property warm and safe during the colder days of winter.

We highly recommend getting a yearly heating system inspection completed before the winter to identify whether you need to replace your heating system before it breaks down. Unfortunately, problems can occur and you may need an emergency heating system replacement in the middle of winter.

At W.F. Smith, we offer comprehensive heating system replacements, including gas furnaces, electric furnaces, heat pumps and boilers. Call today to schedule your heating system replacement in Philadelphia or its surrounding areas!

When your heating system eventually breaks down, it inevitably happens at the worst possible time: right when you need to go to work, late at night on a weekend, or on the coldest day of the year. Luckily, the professionals at W.F Smith in Philadelphia are ready to assist you with a heating replacement when you need it most, whether you rely on a gas or electric furnace, boiler, or heat pump to stay warm.

We recommend that our customers get their heating system inspected every year before winter begins to help identify any components that have worn down or might need replacing. However, sometimes the unexpected happens and you need a furnace repair or new heating system replacement.

How Do I Know When My Heating System Should Be Replaced?

When you’re faced with the decision of whether to repair or replace your heating system, here are a few points to keep in mind:

Age of the System

How old is your heating system? Most gas and electric furnaces and heat pumps will need to be replaced after 10-15 years, although sometimes regular maintenance can extend the life of a system by 5 years.

Cost of Repairs

As your system ages, you are likely to start encountering more problems over time. Are you dumping money into repairs every season (or more often)? Then it may be cheaper in the long run to think about a new heating system replacement.

Rising Energy Bills

Have you noticed that your energy bills have been climbing higher, even though you don’t have the thermostat set very high? Your heating system may be getting less efficient as it ages, which is another reason why you might want to consider a replacement.

Heating Efficiency

Is your heater struggling to heat your entire home? Is it running constantly to try and keep up? It may be best to replace your heating system with a more efficient model.

A good rule of thumb is that if your system is over 10 years old, and a repair would cost more than 50 percent of the price of a new unit, then replacing it might be the best option.

How to Choose the Best Heating Replacement for Your Home

There are several factors to consider when choosing the best heating replacement for your home:

  • Compatibility – Make sure that the unit works with your current distribution system (unless you intend to replace it). For example, if you’re getting a heat pump replacement, it should be one that fits with the existing ductwork.
  • Energy Efficiency – Consider how much usage your system gets, depending on how long it is running during the day, and choose an energy-efficient unit that will help you save money.
  • Sizing – You don’t want your replacement heating unit to be too large or too small for your home. A professional installer can help you choose the correct size.
