Things to Consider Before Choosing a New Heating System
Every home needs a reliable heating system, but that doesn’t make this a one-size-fits-all scenario. There are several types of systems, not to mention many different features and sizes. Finding the right one for your home and budget begins at Gross Heating & Air Conditioning, where experienced HVAC pros can evaluate your needs and help you choose the best new heating system for just-right comfort.
Here are some of the factors that we’ll talk about before making a recommendation:
- Home size—how much heating power do you really need? Bigger isn’t necessarily better, so we’ll help you choose a system that can handle your needs without overpowering your space. A system that’s too big or too small will not cycle properly or run efficiently, and it probably won’t last as long as it should either.
- Forced air or hydronic heat—a furnace or a boiler, that is the question. And the answer depends on several things: Do you already have ductwork? Do you have allergies that will be aggravated when dust blows around? Are you interested in heated floors? We’ll ask about your needs and lifestyle so you can weigh all your options.
- Focus on features—what else can you do to be more comfortable? When you take control of more than just temperature, you’re going to notice a real difference in how you feel. Let our experts start with an AirAdvice for Homes™ air quality test. Then we can recommend solutions to clean your air, improve ventilation, and manage humidity levels—all of which make your home healthier and more comfortable. And while we’re at it, we can add convenience too, with programmable and Wi-Fi-enabled thermostats.
