When you have recently determined that you need a new boiler, there are many companies out there that will be able to help. You can expect a Boiler Westchester NY company to come and help you heat your home better and more efficiently, but you should first understand the components that go into heating your home. The more information you have about your home the better the company will be able to help you. Here are a few ways to determine what size of unit you will need.
You should first figure out your square footage. You can find this number from your floor plans or you can measure it out yourself. To figure out the square footage of each room you can add up the length and width. Once you have each room’s square footage you can then add all of it together to get a total. You will need this number to help decide how big of a unit you will need to have to heat your home properly. You should then take into consideration all the windows you have in your home to tell the Boiler Westchester NY company about. If you have single paned windows that are older you may want to consider upgrading them because they may have more heat loss than newer windows. If you can’t afford to pay for new windows now you might be able to frame them better to lose less heat from them.
After you have written down all the windows and what size they are you should then investigate to find what type of insulation you have in your walls. If you don’t have any access to the inside of your walls you may be able to find out what type it is from your home inspection report. If you have recently installed your own insulation that is newer in technology then you won’t have to worry about as much heat loss. Once you have written all of these factors down you can do a search online to determine what size you will need and to find a Boiler Westchester NY company. You can then have them come and determine which of the boilers will fit your home the best. They will be able to better determine this because of the research you have done.
You should have a Boiler Westchester NY company install your new unit so you can start reaping the rewards of your research and have a very well heated home. You’ll end up with a much more efficient unit because you knew what to tell the Boiler Westchester NY company.
