Furnace? Heat Pump? Which Do I Choose?
It wasn’t all that long ago where your choices for both heating and cooling systems were pretty limited. Today, homeowners have lots of choices, and this can sometimes make decisions challenging. We often hear from our customers, "Which is best for my home? A gas furnace or a heat pump system?" The answer to this question depends on some basic information:
- Do you already have ductwork in your home? – A heat pump system can work with both ducted and ductless systems, but a furnace needs ductwork.
- Do you have ready access to a gas line? – Many homes do have access to a main gas line, but not all. Additionally, some homeowners may not be comfortable having gas piped into their home.
- Do you want a device that offers both heating and cooling, or do you prefer to have separate heating and cooling systems? – Heat pumps offer both heating and cooling with a single unit, but this may not be the best fit for every homeowner.
Do I Have to Size My Heater?
Another common question our experts hear a lot is in regard to sizing a new heater. Is it necessary? Absolutely. Having the wrong–sized heater in your home will cause numerous kinds of problems. A heating system that is too small won’t be able to adequately heat your home and will run constantly in an effort to do so. This can run the system down very quickly. A heating system that is too big will heat your home too fast, leading to potential short–cycling. This means your heater will turn on and off frequently. A short–cycling heater uses a lot more energy because starting a new heating cycle takes a lot of energy, and all that stopping and starting will wear down a number of components. However, when you work with the heating pros from Air Conditioning Experts, you won’t have to worry about installing the wrong–sized heating system in your home. We will help you correctly size your system so that it provides you with the exact amount of heating you need to be comfortable all winter long.
