Choosing A New Heater Installation For A New Build

Building a home is an exciting adventure, but it is also a lot of hard work. Given the investment, every addition you make to the home must be one that is efficient and functional. If you have been tasked with the responsibility of choosing a heating system to install in your new home, you must keep some important factors in mind.

Heating Needs

Think about what areas of the home you plan to heat. For instance, just because your home is 3,000 square feet, it does not mean that you need a heating system designed to heat this much space. If your home has a large garage, exercise room, sunroom, or another non-lived in space, it may not be necessary to provide heat to the area based on the design of the house and the climate. 

Fuel Options

Since you are building your home, you have the option to choose what type of fueling system you will rely on for your heating needs, such as electric or natural gas. All fueling options can provide adequate and reliable heat; however, the cost of the unit and its operation vary based on the fuel source. It is best to speak with a heating professional to learn about specific costs associated with each type of unit before you make your final decision. 

Renewable Energy Options

Be mindful of any renewable energy options you plan to take advantage of, including geothermal and solar systems. The installation of one of these units does come with an increased installation cost, but if you can fit it into your budget, the long-term cost savings they can afford are well worth the investment. Whether or not you plan to install one of these units will affect the type of heating system you have installed, so you want to let the installer know about your plans early on to ensure you select the right unit.

Space

As you plan the design of your new home, do not forget that you will need to leave adequate space for the heater to be installed. If you have a vast design and you have plenty of space for your utility connections, you can install a standard heating system with no problem. However, if there is limited space in the design, you may need to install multiple smaller, zoned units, so keep in mind that you may need to be flexible.

Do not hesitate to speak with a heating installation professional for assistance. A professional can take your needs into account and help you select the right unit.

About Me

The Comfort of Home

When I married my amazing husband ten years ago, I moved into the brick, ranch home he already owned. Immediately, I was thankful that the house was equipped with a central heating and air conditioning unit. This once efficient system kept me cool during the hot summer days. It also allowed me to remain warm in my home during the cold winter nights. Now, our air conditioning unit is twenty years old. Because of its age, the system has started to malfunction. Recently, my husband contacted an HVAC contractor about installing a new system at our home. This kind technician patched our old system to give us time to contemplate what type of new unit we want. On this blog, I hope you will discover the ways an HVAC contractor can help you continue to enjoy the comfort of your home.
