With winter almost upon us, right now is not the most fun time to be shopping for a new heater. Still though, here you are. You probably wouldn’t be reading this post if you weren’t already in need of a new heating system. And you’re probably pretty tempted to just go run out and buy the biggest one you can afford.
But this would be a mistake. There are a number of factors to consider when buying a new heater, such as its energy rating, whether it would be most efficient to get the same type of heating system you’ve always had, and yes that’s right—size. It matters a lot more than you may think.
