Selecting the Right Heating System for Your Home
Let our professionals complete a proper load analysis on your heating project before you start purchasing equipment. Only once we have the complete calculations for your space can the proper heating equipment be selected and installed. Our load analysis takes many factors into consideration such as:
- Number and type of windows
- Insulation and ductwork
- Building materials and roof type
- Skylights and fireplaces
- Ceiling heights
- Number of occupants
- Overall square footage
- Personal heating preferences
- Interior design objectives
We find far too many oversized heating systems being installed in most projects today. An oversized heating system actually makes it harder to control the desired temperature and humidity in any given space. Large systems will be able to get the desired temperature more quickly but will not be able to keep pace with keeping a consistent humidity. Large systems will also go through a process of more starts and stops known as “short cycles”. These short cycles will reduce the lifespan of your heating equipment and are not an efficient or cost effective way to heat your home. It also means you are paying for more expensive equipment that isn’t really being used to its maximum efficiency.
Heating systems that are too small just don’t cut it. They are both inefficient at producing the desired temperature and humidity and will run constantly throughout the year. Both the system and your energy bill are going to feel the pain.
Everyone is encouraged to do an energy audit whether in the homes or offices. It can result in up to 30% energy savings per year. An energy audit starts by taking a thorough walk around the exterior and interior of the house to look for air leaks that are responsible for allowing cold air into your building envelope. The best places to check for air leaks are the edges of the floor, air conditioners, electrical outlets, window frames and doors.
Once you’ve listed all the areas with air leaks, insulate the interior walls and similar areas with R19 fiberglass to make the areas resistant to the transfer of heat. The grade of the insulation materials should differ depending on where it will be installed, with R25 insulation preferable for use in unheated basements.
