3 Mistakes to Avoid When Buying a Heating System
Not Looking at All of the Latest Technology. With today's heating equipment, you can get up to 98% efficiency. Make sure that you get the latest air cleaner, there have been great advances in the last 5 years. You can control the latest thermostats from your cell phone while you are away from your home. There are even systems that do not require duct work, great for home additions.
Not Making Sure That Your Equipment is the Right Size. Just because you had a certain size in the past, does not mean that you need that same size now. Again, the technology has changed, allowing equipment to be more efficient. Make sure that Manual J Heat Load Calculations are done to make sure the system is the right size for your home.
Going with the Cheapest and Not Knowing the Company. While it is good to get a few quotes, everyone has heard the adage "You Get What You Pay For", this goes for heating equipment also. Believe it or not, there are companies working out of their garage and may not be around in the future. For your protection, make sure that your job is going to be permitted, so the job can be inspected by the city when it is done. And lastly know the equipment, "Compare Apples to Apples".
