When Is It Time to Replace Your Heater?

Monday, January 30th, 2023

Heating systems do have expiration dates, contrary to what many people think. We’ve all got that family member or neighbor who still runs that old 20 or 30-year-old heating system that technically still works, but looks like it’s about to fall apart at any minute. While that might sound cool to extend the lifespan of your technology as much as possible, sometimes it can actually lead to problems for you and your home.

Heaters sit in the basement out of sight. But you can always depend on us for your next heating replacement in Greenfield, IN!

The HVAC industry has changed a lot over the past several decades. Back in the old days, one of the best ways to discover a new HVAC technician was to find one through a neighbor or family friend.
