If you’re in the process of building a new house or renovating an existing home, the amount of decisions you need to make can be extremely overwhelming. Along with the excitement of choosing windows, doors, and cosmetic finishes, you’ll need to consider how to improve the efficiency of your home and choose your home heating and cooling systems.
In an attempt to make these decisions a bit less daunting, we’ve broken down 3 things to consider when choosing a home heating system.
- Determine your energy source. For many homeowners, this step is determined for you based on location and availability of energy sources. Most homes are heated with natural gas, although there are certain locations that require the use of propane or LP gas instead. Even still, the use of electric heat pumps can be a beneficial and energy-saving alternative if you reside in a moderate climate.
- Consider the size of your space. One of the biggest mistakes homeowners can make when choosing a home heating system is to install a heating system that is too large or too small to be efficient or effective for their space. Consider the size of your home and enlist the help of a knowledgeable, experienced HVAC professional to guide you in the right direction.
- Budget for initial cost and overall efficiency. Oftentimes, the lowest initial investment can end up costing you more money in the long run. When it comes to home heating systems, cheaper isn’t always the better choice! It is important to consider the efficiency of the heating system and how much (or how little) it will cost you to effectively heat your home each month.
