Keep reading this blog to see what you should consider when requesting a furnace or boiler installation from your local HVAC specialist.

What to Consider for a New Heating Installation in CT

Do You Currently Run a Furnace or a Boiler?

If you already have a furnace in place, your home’s ductwork is prepared for your system to be replaced with another furnace. If you have a boiler, the copper piping will work with another boiler. It’s much more cost effective to stick with the same method of heating your home was built to use, rather than converting the heat-distribution system.

Do You Have a Manufacturer Preference?

If you were satisfied with your old equipment (or if you weren’t!), take note of the brand name. Was it a Buderus, Peerless, or another brand? Let our technicians know! While they are experts at equipping your home with an excellently manufactured heating system, they are always happy to accommodate your home comfort equipment requests.

How Much Heating Capacity Do You Need?

A larger furnace or boiler can heat more zones (or floors) of your home. A small apartment may only need the furnace or boiler capacity for one zone, while a large home may need the capacity for two or three. If you’re not sure, contact our energy experts for a consultation!

Consider Your Fuel Source & Efficiency

Do you currently use oil to heat your home? What about propane? Our technicians will install a heating system that uses the same fuel. Whether you use oil or propane to heat your Central CT home, the efficiency of your home heating system is going to make a significant impact on your annual fuel bills.

Brainstorm Other Necessary Upgrades

Leverage your buying power by upgrading multiple systems at the same time. When you get a new heating unit, consider a new air conditioning system for the summer months. This will promote better energy efficiency overall, helping you save more in the long run.
