Tips For Choosing Your Next Heater

It only takes a few minutes of being outside these days to make anyone grateful for the advent of the modern heating system. Imagine never having the reliability of coming back to a warm home on a cold day when temperatures never breach 50.

If you have an older heating system though, reliability may not be something you can guarantee. A heater that needs to be replaced isn’t something you can, or should, ignore. Instead, hop on getting a replacement as soon as possible! You can start out by figuring out which system you want to choose for your heating installation in O’Fallon, MO.

What Questions to Ask

So how do you start figuring out what you are looking for in a new heater? The obvious part is that you want one that works! Aside from the obvious though, there are some other factors to consider. Ask yourself these questions to help you get started.

  • What fuel source would you prefer? Do you have the option to use natural gas? If you do, would you prefer to go for an all-electric system? If you want to do an electric system, does the price of electricity in your area make this worthwhile?
  • What kind of space do you need to heat? How much square footage needs to be kept warm? How many windows and doors are there in the house that will allow for heat transfer? This tells you more about the “size” of heater you need.
  • Do you need a customizable option? Are there parts of your home that need more or less warmth than others?
  • Do you have ductwork? This will be a huge defining factor. If you have ductwork you can take your pick of systems. If you don’t have ductwork, it is best to look into ductless options.

What Options To Choose From

Now that you know a little bit more about what you may need from your next heating system, let’s take a look at the options that you can choose from.

  • Furnaces: Furnaces are heating systems with a long history. These systems can be powered with a combination of gas and electricity or by electricity alone. Furnaces are known for being extremely effective and pretty efficient which is why they have become a mainstay throughout the country.
  • Heat Pump Mini Splits: The pumps are systems that are ideal for anyone that needs a new heater and is looking to replace their air conditioner in the near future as well. Heat pumps can provide both heating and cooling to your home in a highly efficient manner. What’s more, most modern heat pumps can work in temperatures near freezing without having trouble.
  • Ductless Systems: Ductless home comfort systems are a type of heat pump that does not require ductwork to do its job. Ductless systems are great for anyone with a smaller space that cannot accommodate ductwork.
