One Size Does Not Fit All

If you think that bigger heating equipment means better heating, you’re not alone. The truth is, however, that the size of your heating equipment needs to be right for your home – so bigger isn’t always necessarily better. Selecting the right home heating system should be done with a professional, like those at Alger Energy, who understands how size can affect the efficiency and quality of the heating system. Here are a few areas that can suffer if a system isn’t properly sized.


Over-sized heating equipment will heat a space up very quickly, and while this may seem ideal on a freezing winter night, it will only result in uneven temperatures throughout the home. Some rooms may be overly warm while others are on the cooler side. This is because the system cycles for shorter periods of time, not allowing it to reach optimal temperature throughout the space.


Larger systems can be loud, especially in a small space! This is due to your heating equipment constantly starting up as it cycles more frequently, which also requires more fuel and puts more wear and tear on the equipment.


Not only do over-sized heating systems cost more to install due to the size of the equipment, but they also burn through much more fuel…and your energy budget!

Alger Energy performs heating system evaluations to make sure that your heating equipment is sized appropriately for your living space and to catch other potential problems as well throughout the system.
