“Do I Need a New Heater?”

So do you need a new heater for your home? Here are some signs that it’s probably a good idea for you to upgrade:

You’ve Had Your Heater for Nearly 10 Years

You’ve had your heater for nearly 10 years or even past 10 years. Even if your heater seems like it’s in perfect shape it’s definitely going downhill if it’s in this age range. Unfortunately, your heater can’t last forever. If you try to push your heater too far you’re only going to hurt the unit in the process.

Your Heating Bills Are Out of Control

Your heating bills are higher than ever before. The problem is that the bills only get higher no matter what you do. Climbing bills that don’t match the way that you’re operating your home are a bad sign. Replacement is the answer.

You’re Not Warm Enough

The fact of the matter is that you’re not warm enough. If you’re struggling to get warm at home, then it might just be time for you to replace your heater as a whole.

What Do I Need?

You’ve determined that you need a new heater. Now we need to determine what type of heater you need?


Furnaces are the most common heating system that you can choose here in Portland. This is for a few reasons. Furnaces are great because they’re energy-efficient, long-lasting, and they’re cost-effective too. If you already have a furnace, an upgrade can be helpful from our team members. We’re here to help you out.

Ductless Systems

Do you want specialized comfort for your home? A ductless system might be the right unit for you. Ductless systems are great because they allow you to work around the natural imbalances in your home. These systems help you save money.

Dual Fuel Systems

Dual fuel systems combine the power of a heat pump and a furnace. This is great because you can use a heat pump to heat and cool your home for the majority of the wear. When our cold Portland winters roll around, you can sub in your heater to help out.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are great because they take an eco-friendly approach to heating and cooling a home. A heat pump moves heat where you need it—in your home in the winter and outside of your home in the summer.
