If you’re shopping for a new heating system a heating contractor is going to give you the best advice on your purchase. Many people choose a unit that is far too large for their home, and they assume that the larger the unit the better it will work. A heating unit that is larger than needed is going to waste heat and electricity, which is going to cost you a lot of money over time. A unit that is too small for the home will also cost you more money than what’s needed. The smaller unit will have to run more frequently and use more energy to control the temperature in the home. A heating contractor is going to pick the exact size needed, and will make sure that the unit runs at an efficient rate. It’s best to find a unit over 90 percent efficient.
When the heating contractor is helping you choose a new furnace ask for something that has the Energy Star label. This means the unit has been tested to be one the most efficient options on the market. A heating professional is going to be trained to work on these units, so they’ll install it for you, and also work on it if anything goes wrong. You’ll also want to ask about the manufactures warranty. Two years for the warranty would be standard, anything above that would be ideal. Ask the contractor if they’ll cover their own work as well. Without the help of a heating professional you may end up spending more on your utility bills each month because you don’t have the correct unit for your home. Get professional assistance and make sure that you get a warranty on the investment your making. Purchasing a new furnace adds value to your home, so it’s money well spent.
