A reliable furnace is fundamental to enjoying a comfortable winter in Ruckersville, VA. But buying a new furnace can be daunting. Here are three questions you should ask when choosing a new furnace for your home.
What Size Do I Need?
Improper furnace size can cause a host of problems. Undersized units struggle to keep pace with demand, leading to increased maintenance issues. Oversized units shut off quickly, leading to inconsistent heating and failure to keep your home warm on chilly days. At Duct-Rite Mechanical, LLC, we start each installation with a heat loss calculation. We consider many factors, including layout, square footage, sun/shade effects, windows, insulation, and occupants. Our skilled technicians can then calculate how much power your home needs and determine the size and efficiency rating of the furnace that fills that need.
Who’s Doing The Furnace Installation?
It’s counterproductive to buy a heating system with a high efficiency rating if you end up with a shoddy installation job. That’s sort of like buying a new swimming pool that leaks at the bottom. Our NATE-certified technicians have extensive experience in heating system installations. In addition to real-world experience, we emphasize ongoing training to keep up-to-date on advancements in technology and technique. With Duct-Rite Mechanical, LLC, you can be sure we’ll always bring our A-game to your installation.
When Is It Time to Buy A New Furnace?
Deciding when to buy isn’t an exact science, but hopefully, you can avoid an emergency buy in the middle of winter. Climbing fuel bills, major repairs such as a failing heat exchanger, or when your heating system approaches its 15th birthday are a few signals that it’s nearing the time to buy.
