What Kind of Generator Should You Buy for Your Home?

Buying a backup generator for your home is a great way to guard against the possibility of a power outage. Once you’ve decided to purchase a generator, you will need to decide whether you want a whole-house generator or a portable generator. In part, this depends on the size of your home. If your home is small enough that all of your essentials—such as the refrigerator and your HVAC system—can be powered by a portable generator, you may not need a whole-house generator.

If your home frequently experiences power outages, however, a whole-house generator may be a more convenient option for you. While portable generators must be switched on manually, a whole-house generator instantly kicks into gear whenever your home’s power is shut off. A whole-house generator also switches off as soon as your power is back on, which saves you from wasting energy.

Signs That It May Be Time to Replace Your Furnace

Is your home heating system ready for the upcoming winter? If your furnace is in need of replacement or repair, it is important to schedule a maintenance appointment before the cold weather begins to set in. Over time, your furnace will experience normal wear and tear, and may eventually need to be replaced. To make sure that you are not caught out in the cold this winter, here is an overview of some signs that it may be time to replace your furnace.

Rising Heating Costs
If your home heating bills have begun to rise, your increased heating costs may be a sign that it is time for a new furnace. As your furnace ages, it will begin to reduce in efficiency and effectiveness. Once you notice that your heating bills are much higher than normal, you may want to consider replacing your furnace.

Inefficient Heating
Inefficient heating is another sign that your furnace may need to be replaced. If your furnace is no longer functioning properly, you may notice that certain areas of your home remain cold, while others are too hot. By installing a new furnace, you will achieve consistent and comfortable heat throughout your home.

Unusual Sounds
Your furnace may begin making strange or unusual sounds when it’s time for a replacement. As the many internal components in your furnace begin to age, they can begin to make banging, popping, or rattling sounds. You may also hear your furnace blower making noises, even when the heating element is off.

When it’s time to replace your furnace, do not hesitate to contact Wilson Brothers. We provide our many satisfied customers in the Concord area with a complete range of furnace installations, repairs, and maintenance. To make an appointment for your home today, give us a call at (888) 865-4162.

How Does Forced Hot Water Heating Work?

Forced hot water heating is a popular choice for many homeowners. With forced hot water heating, you will enjoy efficient heating performance while also saving money on your monthly heating bills. When you convert your oil burner to a forced hot water system, your home will be heated using natural gas, rather than oil. This innovative home heating technology is able to sense changes in outdoor air temperature. By sensing outdoor temperatures, the forced hot water heating system is able to adjust the amount of heat that is sent into the living spaces of your home, ensuring your comfort at all times of the day.
