Issues with Improperly Sized Heating Systems

When you hear the phrase “improperly sized” in terms of heating systems, you probably immediately think of systems that are too small for the spaces in which they are installed. Undersized heating systems will certainly lead to a number of problems when attempting to heat one’s home. They’ll be underpowered for the task, which means that they will run longer than they should have to as they struggle to heat the property evenly and effectively. This will likely leave you to pay more money than you should have to in order to heat your home, and likely with inferior results. An oversized heater, however, is really no better.

When a heater is too large for the space that it is tasked with heating, it can actually bring the temperature up too quickly. While that may not sound like much of a problem, it will actually cause the system to short cycle, meaning that it will turnĀ on and off more frequently than it should. This puts a lot of unnecessary stress on the system, and can increase the risk of damage. It also wastes energy. Contact us to know for sure that your heater is of the right size for your home.
