What Size Should My Replacement Furnace Be?02/29/2016 What Size Should My Replacement Furnace Be? If you are ready for a replacement furnace or will be in the near future, you will need to determine what size of system will work properly for your home. Having an appropriately sized system is important to its efficiency and the comfort level of your home. With some research, you’ll be able to find the perfect furnace for your needs. When replacing your system, bigger isn’t always the best. You will waste a lot of energy and money if you install a system that is too large. A system that is too big won’t have to run as long, so it’ll be frequently cycling on and off, which can mean extra wear on your system and can lessen the life of your system. An oversized system will not only cost extra money up front, but it will cost you more over time as well. This is an option you’ll want to dodge. Then there are the problems with a system that is smaller than necessary. If your system is too small, it will run more often to try to heat your space, and it won’t be able to get the job done despite its effort. A system that is too small will work harder, which will decrease the system’s life span. Plus, you’ll be paying higher heating bills for a home that’s not adequately heated. Have a professional, like those at All Elements Heating & Air LLC do a load calculation and consult with you on the best system for your replacement furnace needs. How is Load Calculation Determined? In the past, a home’s load calculation was assumed based only on square footage. This method frequently lead to inappropriate calculations. With advancements in technology and improved knowledge, things are much more precise nowadays. Your furnace professional will study your home as a whole, looking at things like its construction, the color of its roof and how well insulated it is. He or she will also think about the climate in Marshall and how many people live in your home. This assessment is unquestionably much more thorough than coming up with a calculation created on square footage alone! If your HVAC system is correctly sized it will keep you more comfortable and save on expenses.
