If you are building a new home or you need to replace your old furnace in your existing home, you are going to want to make sure that you are taking a few minutes to consider some of the points mentioned below. By doing this, you should find that the entire process, from start to finish, will be a lot easier on you and you will end up with a quality heating system that will keep you and your loved ones warm all winter long.
Is the Duct Work Still in Good Shape?
Just because you were heating your house with a furnace prior to the installation of a new one does not mean that the heating was done efficiently. There might be some spots in your duct work system that are starting to come apart and this will cause a lot of the warmed air to escape the duct work and end up behind the walls. This is not going to keep you and your loved ones as warm as you could be. Before the HVAC company connects the new furnace, have them run a camera through the duct work system for a full inspection.
Consider a Ductless System
If you end up finding out that the majority of the duct work in the house is not in good shape or you are building a home from scratch, you might want to consider the option of a ductless heating system. This will allow you to better control the temperature in each room of the house instead of having just one furnace in the basement that shoots out the same temperature of air all throughout the house. Also, with this heating option, you will not have to worry about anyone ripping out a lot of the walls in your home in order to install all new duct work.
With just those few points to keep in mind, you should find that it is going to be a lot easier for you to find the ideal furnace for your home and then have the furnace installation handled in a manner that will ensure that you will have better energy efficiency for many years to come. If you do not already know which HVAC company you are going to call for assistance, you will want to begin your search. The sooner you find the ideal company to work with, the sooner you can call to have them send out a technician.Share
