The Problem with Improperly Sized Heaters

Monday, February 1st, 2021

How big is your heater? No, hold on—don’t just go measure it and report back to us how many square feet it takes up. While that definitely matters in the measurement of your heater, it’s not the whole story. Heaters need to be able to adequately heat an entire home, and that means a specific model should have been installed in your home that’s able to heat the volume of air inside. This measurement of volume before setting a heater up is known as load calculation.

If you had your heater installed by a less-than-perfect heating professional, or even in the case that you installed your heater yourself (which we absolutely do not recommend), this step could have been missed and you could be dealing with a heater that’s too large or small. Do you need furnace repair in Boerne? Or perhaps you might need a whole system replacement?

Let’s figure out the solution to your problem.
