Having proper heating in your home can impact you a lot as winter arrives. Before you buy a new gas furnace in Victoria BC, here are 5 things you should know.
Furnace systems can be laid out in 2 ways
If you have an indoor area suitable for keeping a furnace unit indoors, such as a basement or attic, you can get a split system installed. This consists of the unit itself and a coil that rests on top of the furnace, a set-up that works if you have the space for it. If you don’t, you can instead have a one-unit packaged system installed outdoors. Both options provide the same results and we can help you choose the best one for you.
If you’re replacing a current furnace, get the filters changed in installation
It is recommended that your furnace filters be changed at least twice a year. Get this done during installation, if possible. The ideal times to complete the change are before the time you will being using the furnace for heating and before the time for cooling.
There are 2 types of blowers
If you want to be able to adjust how quickly air distributes through your home, a variable-speed blower is best for you, instead of a fixed-speed blower.
Installation makes a difference
Getting a licensed gas furnace technician to complete installation will increase how efficiently your furnace runs. Installation is a difficult task that not just anyone can do well.
The technician needs to see your home before they can provide an estimate
In order to provide you with detailed information on which furnace size you need, you’ll need a calculation made in tons or BTUs that takes into account how big your home is, what kind of windows you have, and more. Only with this calculation can anyone determine the best furnace for your home.
