Debunking Furnace Myths for Optimal Heating


When it comes to furnace repair, replacement, and maintenance, there are several widespread misconceptions that can lead to costly mistakes. At Energy Services Air Conditioning and Heating Company, we’re dedicated to providing our customers with accurate information and top-notch services. In this blog post, we’ll debunk one of the most common furnace myths to help you make informed decisions about your heating system.

Myth: Bigger is Always Better

Many homeowners believe that installing a larger furnace will provide better heating and energy efficiency. However, this is not always the case. An oversized furnace can lead to several issues, including:

  • Short cycling: An oversized furnace will heat your home too quickly, causing it to cycle on and off frequently. This can lead to uneven heating and increased wear and tear on the system.
  • Inefficient operation: Contrary to popular belief, an oversized furnace will not necessarily heat your home faster or more efficiently. In fact, it may consume more energy and increase your utility bills.
  • Humidity problems: Oversized furnaces can cause humidity issues in your home, leading to condensation, mold growth, and other moisture-related problems.

The key to optimal heating performance and efficiency is to have a properly sized furnace that matches the heating requirements of your home. Our team at Energy Services can perform a detailed load calculation to determine the right furnace size for your specific needs.

The Importance of Professional Installation and Maintenance

Even with the right furnace size, proper installation and regular maintenance are crucial for ensuring your system operates at peak performance. Our certified technicians follow industry best practices and use high-quality equipment to ensure a seamless installation process. Regular maintenance can also help extend the lifespan of your furnace, improve energy efficiency, and prevent costly breakdowns.
