Whether you are in the market for a furnace, heat pump, boiler, or geothermal system, choosing the right heating system for any Bethesda area home is easy with Service Doctors. We can walk you through this process, but first, we have put together a few things to keep in mind as you begin your search.
The first thing to remember is that fuel costs will be part of your decision. If the cost of electricity or gas is extremely high, it could negate the savings one might get from a high-efficiency system. Even if you think that the type of fuel you are using is cost-effective, compare the prices to make sure you are getting the most out of your investment.
The next item on the list is ductwork. Is there existing ductwork in your home? If so, what condition is it in? When is the last time you’ve had your ducts cleaned? If you have ductwork that is in good condition, think about upgrading to zone control. Geothermal heating is another option for homes in the area; however, the cost-effectiveness of the installation will depend on the layout of your home, the size of your property, and the soil conditions surrounding your home.
It’s always best to speak with a professional if you are considering a renewable energy heating system. You may need to make other upgrades for better overall home performance before making this decision.
