Does Furnace Size Matter?

Monday, March 25th, 2019

Despite the saying, bigger is not always better, especially when it comes to the size of your furnace. We understand the assumption that the bigger the furnace is, the more output it will produce, and the warmer you will be. Although somewhat true, the size of your furnace, relative to your unique heating needs, can greatly impact its overall performance. The same principle applies if the furnace you’ve installed is too small. This is why it is important that your new home is properly sized to meet your home’s specific needs.

Installing a new furnace is no small task, which is why it is especially important to consult with a professional HVAC contractor in Colorado Springs before you make any final decisions. A heating professional will assess the size of your home in order to determine exactly which furnace is going to be a good fit. Trust us, you don’t want to have an oversized or undersized furnace installed in your home, and below, we are going to tell you why.
