Choosing the Right Type of Heating System
The first step in selecting your new heating system is deciding which type of system to go with. It is also important to remember that just because you had one type of system in the past does not mean you have to stick with that type again. The options for high quality home heating are increasing every day, so it is definitely worth looking around and exploring the alternatives before you settle on any one particular type of home heating system.
In the end, the type of heating system that is best for you will depend on the size and specifications of your home, as well as what resources are available where you live. This can be hard to figure out on your own, though, and that is why the experts here at Bob’s are always on hand to help you sort through all the data and come to an informed decision.
The Importance of Proper Size Selection
Another reason to consult the professionals when it comes to picking out your new heating system is that you will want one that is the right size for your home. Having a heating system that is not powerful enough can lead to plenty of problems down the line. The system will have to work harder to keep your home comfortable and it may not even be able to do that satisfactorily. Even if it can keep the temperature at a comfortable place for you, the added strain of heating too large a space can shorten the lifespan of this type of equipment significantly.
On the other hand, having a heating system that is too powerful will cause it to turn on and off more frequently than is ideal. Although it may seem like the opposite type of situation, the strain that this constant stopping and starting will put on your system can be just as damaging as the overload taken on by the smaller system. In both cases, you will wind up needing to replace your system much sooner than you should.
Furnaces are the home heaters that most people are familiar with. And indeed, there are many good furnaces out there. Aside from the type of fuel they burn, the main difference between the various furnace models on the market has to do with how efficiently they translate fuel into heat.
For instance, a furnace with an 80% AFUE rating is probably more efficient than your older model, but it will wind up wasting much more fuel than one with an AFUE rating of 90% or higher. However, in some cases the furnace with the 80% rating is a better option because these models are generally cheaper to purchase and install. Depending on the climate where you live and how much you use your furnace, the added savings you would get from a 90+% AFUE furnace may or may not be worth the extra installation costs.
Heat Pump Installation
The other main option in terms of home heating systems that we offer here at Bob’s is heat pumps. These are generally integrated with an air conditioning system to create a year-round climate control system for your home. Heat pumps are an excellent option, particularly in climates that require the use of both air conditioning and heat at different times of the year.
