This first Heating as well as A/C corporation I called about an estimate for a current heater gave me a price for a model of the exact same specs.

This didn’t seem right to me.

Over the years since the original heater was installed, we’ve made a lot of changes. We’ve upgraded the roof, added attic installation as well as had brand new, ENERGY STAR rated windows installed. We’ve caulked, weather sealed as well as added ceiling fans. We’ve torn down walls as well as installed sliding glass doors to a back patio. A screened porch was converted into an extra dining room. Our kids have gone off to university as well as taken us from a family of five to two. All of these changes certainly made a difference in the heat load of the home. I did some research as well as learned that Heating as well as A/C dealers should complete a Manual J calculation. They should take into consideration more than the size of the ancient heater as well as square footage of the house. Everything from weather conditions as well as windows to insulation as well as shade trees make a difference. If a heater is too small for the demand, it won’t be able to keep up. The furnace will run constantly however fail to provide a comfortable home. The longer run times can result in a shorter lifespan. A heater that’s oversized is almost as bad. The system will achieve temperature setting too rapidly as well as never achieve peak efficiency levels, then short-cycling can be hard on components as well as increase the risk of repairs. I called around as well as spoke with five weird Heating as well as A/C companies before I found one that provides respected calculations for sizing. They provided a free estimate as well as back every task with a 100% pleasure guarantee.
