Don’t go bankrupt trying to pay your energy bills this winter! Instead, reach out to our experienced team at Bowman Mechanical to discuss replacing your old, inefficient heating system with a new unit. For over 30 years, we’ve worked with homeowners and businesses around Garner, helping them choose the right system for their needs and budget so they can stay warm all winter without worrying about costs, breakdowns, or other problems.
Should You Replace Or Repair Your Current Heating System?
One question we’re frequently asked is if a customer should pay for a repair or if they should consider having the whole system replaced. We typically recommend a heating repair in most situations as that tends to be the most cost effective option, but there’s actually a formula that is used as a general guideline to help homeowners know which path to take. Often called the “5,000 rule,” take the age of the unit, multiply that by the cost of the estimated repair, and if that number is greater than 5,000, it’s probably better to replace the unit. For example, if your 10 year old heating system needs $350 in work, 10 x 35 = 3500, so you’d just repair it. However, if your 15 year old unit needs $350 in work, 15 x 350 = 5250, so you may want to invest in a new system since the old one is nearing the end of its life expectancy.
Also, if your energy costs are high and getting worse each year, you may find investing in a more energy efficient model is better in the long run for your budget.
The Installation Process for Your Heat Pump or Furnace
The team at Bowman Mechanical brings experience and knowledge to every job we take, so we are able to make the experience as simple and stress free as possible. First, we will sit down with you to determine what kind of heating system is best for your home, determining size, brand, and unit options. Then, we will schedule a convenient day and time to install the new system.
Installing a heating system isn’t a quick, simple task, often taking between four and eight hours, depending on the size of the unit and existing system, but our experienced team of technicians know how to work quickly and efficiently to get the system up and running with minimal impact on your day.We will walk you through the process, and also walk you through how to use your new thermostat and system, and once we’ve answered any questions and made sure it’s working just as it should, we clean up and are on to the next task, making sure to leave your home just as we found it.
