In only the last 20 years, the number of options available to homeowners for heating during the winter has grown tremendously. Technological advances have made older heating systems more attractive, and created new systems with numerous advantages. Although this situation means homeowners have a variety of choices, it also makes it more likely for a homeowner to select the wrong system for them.

How to pick the right heater
- Hire professionals from the start: With all the factors involved in narrowing down your choices for a home heating system, you need to have HVAC experts assisting you from the very beginning. Professionals will know how to gauge your home for its specific heating needs and then make suggestions for the best heater for you. And, of course, they’ll handle the installation when the time comes so that everything goes well.
- Have a heat load calculation performed: One of the important jobs that professionals will perform for you is a heat load calculation. This calculation takes into account numerous factors about your home—such as its size and insulation—and then determines how much heat it needs to keep it comfortable. This will not only guide you in deciding the type of heater that you need, it will also help you in selecting the proper sized heater.
- Consider your energy source: If you do not have a natural gas line into your home, you will either need to find way to hook up to a nearby gas line (if there is one) or instead rely on one of the many effective electric-powered heaters. Start planning now based on the fuel that’s available.
