What Size Heating System Does My Home Need?

Check out these pro tips on buying heating and air conditioning equipment.

When shopping for new heating and air conditioning equipment, it’s important your technicians install a system that’s properly sized for your home. It’s great you are taking care of this home upgrade now, before the really cold weather sets in. There’s nothing worse than being stuck in a cold house with a dead furnace.

You should always ask your heating and air conditioning expert to determine the proper size of your new HVAC equipment. Here are a couple of quick tips to help you make the right purchase:

1. Many homeowners believe that bigger is better.

But when it comes to heating and air conditioning equipment, that’s simply not the case. An oversized furnace will start and stop cycles all day long as it tries to maintain a consistent temperature. This is extremely inefficient, and it causes a lot of wear and tear on the equipment.

2. Other homeowners try to skimp on their heating and air conditioning equipment.

After all, we enjoy a fairly mild climate here in North Carolina. If you only run your furnace at night and early mornings, why does it even matter how big the furnace is? Because a furnace that is too small will run all night and all morning. This is also highly inefficient and will slash the lifespan of your furnace.
