What To Consider When Choosing a Heater
You don’t just want to automatically select the exact same heating system that you had before when you need to replace your old unit. Don’t get us wrong, if you had a furnace before and it is still the best option to meet your heating needs then you can go ahead and get that system installed. We just want to make sure that you are considering all your options rather than simply opting for the status quo.
Make sure to consider all of the following factors when you are choosing a new heater so you can select the system that best fits your needs.
- How much space you have. In some cases, you may be trying to find a physically smaller heating system than the one you had before. If you’re home only offers a small amount of space for your heating system it is well worth it to look into options such as heat pumps or even ductless systems to help you save space.
- The efficiency levels you want. How energy efficient was your last heater? Whatever your answer, there is a strong likelihood that there are systems out there that can offer increased energy efficiency well above what your previous heater offered.
- Whether you want custom comfort options. Do you have areas of your home that warm up easily and then other parts that seem to fight to stay cold? If so it may be worth considering a ductless system to allow you the ability to customize your comfort. Different air handlers can be run separately to create optimal warmth in the home.
- Is all-electric a good option? Heat pumps are often praised for their high energy efficiency because they don’t rely on combustion the way gas furnaces do. While efficiency is great, it doesn’t always mean an all-electric system is the best solution for every home. Depending on your electricity costs and how cold your area gets during winter, a gas furnace may still be better for your home simply based on how much it would cost per month.
