What Size Furnace Do I Need?
Before you purchase a new furnace, one of our certified technicians will perform a heating load calculation to determine the correct sizing of your new equipment. This calculation is based on a number of factors, including the size of the home, the number of occupants, insulation levels, and more. A furnace that is too large will short-cycle, continuously turning off and on as it quickly reaches the desired temperature in the home, while one that is too small will struggle to maintain the setpoint on your thermostat. Improper sizing creates unnecessary wear and tear on parts and can lead to a shortened life span for the furnace and unusually high energy bills for you.
Advantages of Replacing an Older Furnace
With an average life span of 12 to 15 years, you may start to notice a decrease in efficiency around the 10-year mark. Replacing your older furnace with a new, energy-efficient unit comes with a number of benefits, including:
- Reduced energy usage
- Fewer repairs
- Warranty coverage
- Enhanced reliability
- Greater comfort
Ductless heating and cooling is the perfect solution in areas or rooms where no ductwork is present. It consists of an outdoor unit and one or more wall- or ceiling-mounted indoor units, connected through a small, three-inch hole in the exterior wall. Each indoor unit is individually and remotely controlled for unsurpassed temperature control, comfort, and energy efficiency. We install ductless furnaces in Fremont, California, and throughout the entire Bay Area.
