If you’re no longer comfortable on an older couch, you can always upgrade it: changing out the cushions, reupholstering the couch, or, of course, replacing it entirely. You might not think you have such a wide range of options when you’re uncomfortable with the temperature of your home, but you do! There’s a lot you can do to upgrade your heater…you just have to find a good technician to do it for you.
We’re coming up on springtime, but mild weather is the perfect time to upgrade your heating system so that it gives you the whole-home comfort and control you need. Contact us for these upgrades and more!
Get a Smart Thermostat
The smart thermostat is the latest and greatest in HVAC technology, and your local technicians are happy to help you find a compatible model and make the switch. When you do, you’ll get all of the benefits that modern homeowners are ranting and raving about:
- Smart thermostats learn your preferences within about a week, so you don’t have to touch the thermostat before you leave for work.
- You can save money by tracking your energy usage and adjusting settings accordingly.
- You can easily warm up the home before you come home or turn off the heat if it’s accidentally left on high.

Add Zone Control
You want the air a little cooler than your partner or your child does, but you have to compromise on one temperature throughout the whole home. Who hasn’t been in this situation? Zone control can resolve that.
It’s an extensive installation that involves modifying the ductwork to add in dampers that can automatically adjust to let air in or keep it out. That means you can keep one room cooler or warmer than the rest of the house, adjusting temperatures according to preference or to save energy.
Upgrade the Blower Fan
This is another upgrade that could benefit your home year round. Blower fans mostly move only at one speed. When the thermostat determines more air is needed, the fan turns on—at 100% of its speed capabilities. When you no longer need it, the fan shuts off. New variable speed blower motors, though, allow the
We should note, however, that upgrading only the blower fan may result in a mismatched system with reduced performance. If you don’t want to take this risk with an older furnace, it may be time for a replacement. Furnaces last only about 10-15 years, and after this point they are no longer efficient. A heating system replacement (with a variable speed fan motor) will run more smoothly and help you save year after year!
