Purchasing A Heater: The Do's & Don'ts

Choosing a new heating unit can feel daunting. There are so many decisions to make and professionals offering their opinions, but how do you know who to trust? You don’t want to make a mistake you regret, and you just want to have reliable heating in your home again. What should you do – and more importantly, what should you NOT do?

Furnace Buying Don’ts

There are a few common things that homeowners skip over or miss out on when deciding what heating system to invest in. These simple factors can lead to major regrets down the line, so take these things into consideration!

Ignoring Indoor Air Quality

While your heater is primarily meant to heat the air in your home, it’s also responsible for filtering the air as well. Indoor air quality should never be underestimated – especially if any member of your home has a respiratory vulnerability.

From seasonal allergies to asthma to more serious illnesses, your indoor air quality can significantly affect your quality of life. Many particles in the air are supposed to be filtered out by your heater before reentering your home and lungs. You’ll need to make sure your new unit is capable of keeping your air clean!

Sacrificing Efficiency For Price

Furnaces that operate more efficiently are likely going to be more expensive upfront. While this may scare you off, it’s best to think about the cost of heating your home over that 10-year span as a whole. Sure, you might spend a little extra at the beginning, but what will you save in energy costs over 10 years?

Brand new heaters have the capability to perform at their listed efficiency rating, but they always deteriorate as time goes on. This means that even the highest efficiency system on the market will start to operate less efficiently as soon as one year after purchase. Calculate this into your 10-year plan and make sure your system isn’t going to cost you an arm and a leg in five or six years!

Furnace Buying Do’s

While each home is different, there are some steps in the heating system investing process that always helps. With these things at your back, you’ll have far more success with your Ball furnace replacement.

Consult With Professionals

No matter how much of the process you think you can do on your own, always consult with professionals! There’s a reason why they’re the pros — they have years of experience and skills specific to this exact industry! From heat load calculations to size recommendations to the heater installation itself, you’ll have far less stress with help. Let teams like Ball do what we do best and give your new heater the best start on its life in your home.

Plan Ahead If You Can

We know that many furnace replacements occur due to your current system failing unexpectedly. If you can pay attention to your unit and plan to replace it before it breaks down, you’ll have more time to consider your options and get recommendations from professionals.
