Heating System Installation in Lawrenceville, GA
When you need a new heater for your Lawrenceville, GA home, it can be very tempting to just pick the very first one that matches your budget, and call it a day. But the initial cost of your new furnace, heat pump, or ductless system is just the beginning. You have to pay energy bills to keep in running each winter, have it routinely maintained, pay for repairs, and replace it if it’s not the right match for your home or if it has reached the end of its lifespan.
We’d like to help you avoid paying more for your heater throughout the winter or replacing it sooner than you should have to by providing expert, professional heater installation. This starts with correctly sizing your heater for your home, and helping you decide what model is best for your living space.
Why You Should Choose a Pro for Your Lawrenceville Heater Installation
Over the last decade, heating systems such as furnaces and heat pumps have made huge advancements in efficiency and technology. This shows in the form of safer and more energy efficient furnaces, and heat pumps that can operate without ducts and provide zoned heating (and cooling) throughout entire homes—these systems are called ductless mini splits.
When you start shopping for your next heating system, you’ll notice terms and acronyms such as HSPF and AFUE—these are ratings used to describe how much energy the unit will use to keep your home warm. Typically, the higher the rating, the more efficient your system will be, but there are other factors to consider. Hiring a professional means you’ll have a trained and experienced technician to help you sift through these factors, and make an educated decision about your next heater.
What Happens with an Incorrectly Sized Heater?
When determining what size furnace or heat pump you need for your home, our technicians will look at factors beyond simply the square footage of your home. We’ll look at how many levels it is, if you have sufficient insulation, and how many windows and doors are in your home—and how efficiently they keep conditioned air inside.
Getting too large of a heater can be just as detrimental as purchasing one that’s too small and not powerful enough for your home. Improperly sized heaters will eventually leave you suffering from:
- Increased Repair Needs
- Uneven Temperatures in the Home
- Inefficient Operation
- Short-Cycling, or Rapid Cycling On and Off
- Cracked Heat Exchangers
These symptoms range in severity, but in the long run, they are all unnecessary costs. Contact our team with any questions you have about choosing and sizing the right heater for your home.
Does Your Heater Need to Be Replaced?
In the best case scenario, any heating problems you experience can be fixed with a call to our technicians for professional heating repair. However, no appliance lasts forever, no matter how well its cared for. The average heater, depending on its make and level of maintenance, will last about 15-20 years. Beyond that point, it may be time to consider replacement.
