A properly functioning heating system can make the difference between an enjoyable winter and an uncomfortable one. So, a professional contractor like Stoudenmire is essential for ensuring your heating system remains functioning at peak efficiency throughout the winter. Many contractors overlook the value of a well-designed system in minimizing energy bills by meeting the specific needs of your house. Furthermore, the right heating repair and installation services are also necessary for reducing your costs.
Many homes can benefit from a custom-designed heating system, especially older houses that may not comply with modern building codes. We’re highly experienced in retrofitting these houses with the latest high-efficiency systems, which can greatly reduce your energy bills and increase your overall comfort.
The design phase largely consists of designing the zones and determining your house’s heating requirements. Some areas of your house have different requirements than the others. Controlling the heat with a single thermostat heats some areas more than they need, which wastes money. The division of your house into multiple zones helps to solve this problem by allowing you to independently control the temperature of each zone. A system that’s too small can increase your energy bill just as easily as one that’s too large Calculating your house’s load requirements is an essential part of the design phase. Designers should base these calculations on the Air-Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) Manual J method or the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning (ASHRAE) guidelines.
The best heating system for your house is highly dependent upon geographical location, which affects climate and utility prices. Fuel type is a primary factor, which typically comes down to a choice between electricity and natural gas. The type of system is also important, which may include boilers, furnaces and heat pumps.
