A new home heating system is a big investment. You’ll have to live with this decision for the next 10 to 15 years. It’s important to choose the right unit that fits your needs and budget. Here are a couple of tips to choose the best heating system for your property.
Your Initial Investment
A new heating system can cost a lot of money. For example, a solar-zoned heating unit can be very expensive to install. You want to set a price range that is comfortable for your budget. If you are looking for recommendations, contacting a reliable heating company to explore your options is a great place to start.
Compatibility with Existing Equipment
You need to find a unit that is compatible with your existing distribution system. Many people use the same ductwork throughout the home. If this is an option for you, a technician can find a compatible heating unit for your home. You can also choose to fully upgrade and replace all the components for your new system. Some homeowners choose to replace ductwork units with ductless or radiant heating systems. A professional heating company is the best place to start researching these systems for your home.
When you purchase a new system, you can expect high-efficiency performance from the unit. It is very important to choose a company that can properly install your system. If the unit is improperly installed, you could be losing all those energy saving benefits. A professional from a licensed company will be able to install a new system for your home.
All heating systems come with rated energy efficiency levels. It is usually measured by the annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating. This number calculates the percentage of fuel used in your home for heating purposes. A high number means the unit is more energy efficient.
