New Hampshire Heating Tip: How to Choose the Right Heating System for Your Home

If you are currently looking for a new heating system in your New Hampshire home, the amount of choices you face can feel burdensome. It seems like having many choices should be a positive, but when you consider the consequences of choosing the wrong system to provide you with the heating for a long winter, having so many options will turn stressful.

It doesn’t have to be this way. We’ll show you how to make the right choice for heating your home. HB Energy Solutions has helped heat homes for 21 years, and over that time we’ve developed a strong reputation for reliable and professional work.

How to pick the right heating system

  • First, hire a professional HVAC contractor. Don’t wait until it’s time to install the heater; you want professional opinions from the beginning.
  • Second, have the professionals perform a heat load calculation in your home. This special calculation takes into account multiple factors about your home’s heating requirements, from its size to the number of windows. After the calculation, the installers will have a good sense of what sort of heater will work best for your home, and how large it should be.
  • Third, consider your available power source. If you have access to a natural gas line, that will play an important part in what kind of heater you get: natural gas heaters tend to cost less to run than electrical heaters. If you only have electric power, you will need to focus more on efficiency among the available models, or consider using a propane or oil-powered heater as an alternative.
  • Fourth, consider your budget plans, both short- and long-term. Some heaters cost less to purchase up front and install, but incur higher heating bills and possibly more repairs in the future. Other heaters have high initial prices, but will pay for themselves with their energy savings within a number of years. Talk over the options with the professionals to find what fits best with your budget.

If you follow these steps, you should end up with the optimal heater for your house and your needs. Make sure the professionals who helped you make the choice of heating system also take care of the work installing it, so that your new heater works to the best of its ability for many years to come.
