Choosing the Right Size Furnace is Vital
One of the most common mistakes when purchasing a new furnace is to choose one that doesn’t have the right output for your living or working space. Bigger is definitely not always better, and a furnace that is too powerful and meant for a larger space will end up switching off and on frequently. This means that your furnace is suffering from more wear and tear than is needed, and its longevity will suffer as a consequence. A larger heater also will require more energy to run.
A furnace that is too small isn’t much better. If your furnace does not have adequate output for your property size, it will have to run constantly to warm up your home or office, which will also result in excessive energy consumption.
