The right furnace size is important for not only keeping your home’s temperature comfortable but also for fuel efficiency and cost. When replacing or installing a new furnace, find out what size will work best. Bigger is not always better when it comes to furnace size. If the furnace is too small, it won’t adequately heat your home. Conversely, if it’s too large, there will be a heating imbalance in your home. Think of it this way, if areas near the thermostat heat up quickly, rooms in the remotest part of the house won’t get warmed efficiently or adequately. However, if the thermostat is some distance from the furnace, some of the rooms near the furnace may become too warm before the room with the thermostat.
Consult With an HVAC Professional
To be sure the furnace is the right size and properly heating or cooling your home, it’s a good idea to consult an HVAC contractor to determine the load calculation. The floor plan and the size of the space will allow a professional to determine the right size furnace for your home and to keep the energy prices down.
Your Home Size
When selecting a furnace, consider the size of the space. Homes lose heat through windows and doors, walls, roofs, etc. Air ducts throughout the house are the way your home sufficiently cools and heats. If the ducts are too small, the amount of air needed to make the space a comfortable temperature will be too much and require more pressure to be pushed out. The pressure of the air being pushed through the ducts will be heard and will result in overworking the furnace and insufficiently heating or cooling your home. Larger ducts will solve the airflow problem and allow the system to work efficiently, save energy costs, and keeps the furnace lasting longer.
