What Size Should My Replacement Furnace Be?
If it’s time for a replacement furnace or will be shortly, you will need to identify what size of system will work most appropriately for your house. Having an appropriately sized system is key to its efficiency and the comfort level of your house. With some research, you’ll find the perfect furnace for your needs.
When replacing your system, bigger isn’t always ideal.
Your household will waste a lot of energy and money if you choose a system that is bigger than you need. A system that is too large won’t have to run as long, so it’ll be consistently cycling on and off, which means extra wear on your system and can shrink the life of your system. An oversized system will not only cost more money up front, but it will cost you more over time as well. This is an option you’ll want to stay away from.
Then there are the issues with a system that is smaller than you need. If your system is too small, it will run too often to try to heat your space, and it won’t be able to get the job done despite its exertion. A system that is too small will work harder, which will decrease the system’s life span. Also, you’ll be paying higher heating bills for a home that’s not adequately heated. Have a professional, like those at Premium Air Services LLC perform a load calculation and chat with you on the best system for your replacement furnace needs.
How is Load Calculation Determined?
In the past, a home’s load calculation was determined based only on square footage. This method frequently lead to inappropriate calculations. With advancements in technology and increased knowledge, things are much more precise nowadays. Your furnace professional will study your home as a whole, looking at factors like its construction, the color of its roof and how well insulated it is. He or she will also consider the climate in Tomball and how many individuals live in your home. This assessment is certainly much more thorough than determining a calculation created on square footage alone!
