Why It’s Important to Get the Right Furnace
Your home is one of a kind. It has a square footage, an insulation level (and flaws), size and number and quality of windows, and sun exposure. It also has variations in heat and humidity in different areas of your home. This means your furnace has to be the right size and power for your home. A furnace that’s to small just won’t keep your house warm on those cold winter nights. Getting a furnace that’s too large sounds like a good idea, but a furnace that’s too big will be constantly turning on and off, which means it wears out sooner and creates wider temperature swings.
Your family is one of a kind. The number of people living in the home, how old they are, how much time they spend in the home, and their heating preferences all make a difference. Some people are sensitive to noise or find temperature variations irritating. Families will also have different financial priorities: some may be on a tight budget, which means low up-front cost is top priority. Others may know they’re staying in their home long-term, which can make energy efficiency savings a priority.
