Make Sure That Your Heater Is Properly Sized

Living in Illinois means cold winter weather. If for any reason you find yourself in need of a new heater in the middle of the winter season, it’s understandable that you might want to rush through the system selection and installation process. When you work with us, the job will be done fast, but it will also be done right every step of the way.

You really don’t want to overlook key aspects of your new heater, such as its size. Only trained professionals can guarantee that your new heater in Bolingbrook is of the right size for your home. We can help you to avoid many problems associated with improperly sized heating equipment.

Wasted Money Upfront

When you buy more heater than your home needs, you are wasting money as soon as you purchase that equipment. Buying an oversized heater may sound better than buying an undersized one, but the fact is that both sides of the coin are problematic. We’re dealing with a Goldilocks situation here, and it is important that your heater is not too big, not too small, but just right. Don’t waste your money on power you’ll never use.


When your heater is too small, the problems that you’ll face are pretty obvious. Your heater is going to struggle to heat your home effectively and evenly. You may actually wind up paying more for a weaker heating performance. As your heater tries hard to keep up with demand, you’ll see your heating costs climb even as your comfort stagnates.

Wear and Tear

We’ve talked about short cycling in this blog before. If you don’t recall, this is a problem common with oversized heaters. The temperature is adjusted too quickly, and the heater will cycle off before it should. Then the house cools off, and the heater turns back on, to cycle back down quickly. This puts a lot of unnecessary wear and tear on the heater, and can result in damages as well as increased costs.
