4. Does the size of the furnace matter?
When looking at the size of the furnace you are not just looking at the physical size, you are also looking at the Btu’s. A Btu or British thermal unit is the unit or measure of heat that the furnace puts out. The typical furnace is rated at 100,000 Btus but you can select a model that operates anywhere from 40,000 Btu’s to 200,000 Btu’s depending on the size you need for your home. The size you will need depends on a variety of factors. These factors include the square footage of your home, the number of windows in your home and your home’s sun exposure. Our contractor is better able to help guide you through your furnace replacement, selecting a size after doing a heat loss evaluation and evaluating your home based on the criteria listed above.
5. WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO CONSIDER WHEN IT COMES TO HEATING INSTALLATION?
When it comes to heating installation make sure that the ducts of your system are looked at once in a while. If the ducts are leaking then your AC equipment will have to work double time to cope for the loss that is taking place. Ducts that have leaks can cause your heat pump, central furnace or air conditioner to lose in the range of 25 to 40 percent of energy.
