Today’s heat pumps are strong enough to keep you warm here in Pingree Grove, IL. While it’s true that older systems like these couldn’t keep you warm when the temperature got too cold, that’s not the case today.
Modern heat pumps will work even when it’s negative 14 degrees outside. That covers just about all winter here. And, it usually only gets colder than that in the middle of the night and not for too long.
That means even if the heat pump stops working, it’s only temporarily, usually when you’re sleeping and your home still has heat. But, you can also consider a dual-fuel system for amazing comfort and peace of mind.
You can read more about those setups here. Or, call us at (630) 504-8688 to find out more about how those would work in your Fox River Valley Home.
Conventional gas furnaces usually last between 15 and 20 years. If you don’t keep your maintenance, it’s possible to need a replacement after around a decade. We’ve also seen well-kept units last for 25 years.
There are two easy ways to make your furnace lasts as long as possible.
The first is changing the air filter every month when the system runs. Or, once every three months when it’s not.
The second is to get two check-and-cleans a year: One in the fall for heater season and another in the spring if you have central air.
This routine maintenance is relatively inexpensive and only takes about an hour. Once it’s done, your system is optimized to give the best performance while using as little energy as possible.
That optimization helps add years of service to the life of your system!
