Which home heating system will work best for you?

Autumn is here and that means the sleet, snow and wind of winter is on the horizon. Now’s the time to have a good look at your home’s heating system and see if it’s up to the task. If it’s plagued by repair problems, causing your energy bill to skyrocket or simply doesn’t warm your home up properly, it’s a good idea to visit your local plumbing and heating supply experts in NJ and select a new system. Here are some tips for choosing the right heating system for your home:

  1. What’s your current system’s problem? Knowing where your current pain points are will help you to narrow down your options. You may need a more powerful unit or a more energy efficient unit depending on what is currently motivating you to invest in a new system.
  2. What fuel are you using? There are several different types of furnaces and boilers on the market, but it’s often easiest and more affordable to stick with your current fuel type. Fortunately, there are a range of different powerful and high-efficiency units for each type fuel, so you won’t be stuck without a viable option.
  3. Going Green. These days, choosing a high efficiency unit is just as much about lowering your energy bill as it is preserving the environment. Essentially, these units reduce energy wastage as far as possible – for example, a 97% AFUE rating on your heating unit means that 97% of the energy powering the unit is converted into heat. This is a significant figure when you consider that older units have an AFUE rating of around 65%!
  4. Size matters. The output of your heating system must be able to measure up to the demands of your home and household. A unit that is highly efficient but too small will leave you wearing multiple sweaters indoors, while a unit that is too big will result in wasted energy.
