Factors to Consider When Buying a New Heater

We may be known for our heat, but that doesn’t mean that winter doesn’t pack quite the punch when temperatures drop. If the last week is any indication, winter is definitely on its way. When it hits full force, you’ll want to ensure that you have a fully functioning heating system—particularly for those chilly nights we’re sure to experience.

So, if you were already thinking of shopping for a new heating system, now is the time to do so! But, we advise against just rushing out and selecting the first heater that you find. There are a couple factors to keep in mind when making this important purchase.

Make Sure Your Heater Is Sized Correctly

Most homeowners don’t realize just how important it is that they get the right sized heating system for their home. When it comes to heating systems, bigger is not better.

Unless you go to a professional, such as one of the technicians on our staff, you may get roped into buying a system that is bigger than you need. Or, you may automatically buy a small system because it matches your budget, to discover it doesn’t do its job efficiently.

Your heater cannot run effectively if it is not installed and sized as it should be. If it’s too small, it can’t adequately heat your home and will wear down faster, leading to both uneven temperatures throughout your living space as well as increased repair needs that you wouldn’t have had to deal with otherwise.

If it’s too large, then it will cycle on and off rapidly—a process known as short-cycling. This also increases wear and tear, and can cause the system to overheat, resulting in a broken down heater.
