If you need a new heating system for your business, it may be difficult to decide which type of unit is right for you. In general, you can choose between two different modes of heating: forced-air heating and radiant heating. While a forced-air heating system (like a furnace) may be inexpensive to install as long as you have an existing set of ductwork, boilers can offer greater efficiency and comfort in some cases.
Choosing the right system is going to depend a lot on your preferences, the amount of usage your system will get, your monthly utility budget, and the size and structure of your building. Therefore, this likely isn’t a decision you can make on your own.
If you’re replacing an older system, however, it may be easier to figure out what’s best for your commercial heating in Farmington, NM.
What Type of Heating System Are You Using Now?
In general, if you’re replacing an older heater, you may want to stick to a similar unit, especially if that unit was working just fine at some point. It’s a very involved process to replace a boiler with a furnace, and vice versa. While initial boiler installation may take several days, replacing an older boiler should go a lot more smoothly. And adding a furnace to a property is difficult if you don’t already have a set of ducts for your heating.
You may be concerned about replacing your older unit with a similar model because your property’s old furnace or boiler was not as efficient or high-performance as you’d like it to be. However, you should keep in mind that today’s commercial heating units are far more efficient than they once were, allowing unsurpassed levels of comfort as long as your system and your ducts are inspected and provided that you choose professionals for installation.
