Heating expenses can easily consume close to half of an average household’s energy budget.
Size & Efficiency Matter
Heating system specifications should fit your home’s needs. Proper sizing and installation are critical to ensuring your furnace is efficient. A furnace that’s too small won’t keep your house comfortable during extremely-cold weather. Furnaces that are larger than necessary cycle more frequently resulting in unnecessary wear and wasted energy. Also, larger furnaces may require larger ducts. Without the right size ducts, airflow can be noisy.
Your Sure Temp technician will begin by evaluating your home by performing an Air Conditioning Contractors of America Manual J HVAC load calculation. This will determine your heating needs based on the climate, your home’s size, design, and construction. The calculation is relatively easy to determine and will reveal what size furnace you need to effectively and efficiently heat your entire home. Gas is currently the most common heating fuel, and most new central-heating systems use gas.
