If you are looking to have a new heater installed for the coming winter, you have many different factors to consider. In fact, there might be so many that you’ll feel a touched overwhelmed.

For quality heating services in Livingston, CA, you can trust to Ace Air Conditioning. Since 1991, we’ve offered professional services for heating and air conditioning that has kept our customers comfortable throughout the year.
Here are 3 specific factors to consider for your upcoming heating installation:
1. Your energy source
How do you currently supply power to your home? Do you only use electrical power, or do you also have access to a natural gas line? The sort of power you have available will have an effect on what type of heating you will have installed. Heat pumps are excellent options if you rely on electrical power, while a natural gas supply makes a gas-powered furnace an attractive alternative.
2. Your home’s individual heating requirements
Not all homes need the same amount of heat to make them comfortable. Everything from insulation, to the number of windows, to how many people live in your house, will have an impact on a home’s heating requirements. This is why you must have a heat load calculation performed by professionals. This calculation will give your installers a specific idea of what type and size of heater will work best for you.
3. Your ductwork (or lack of it)
Forced-air systems like furnaces or standard heat pumps use ducts to send heated air through a home. However, if you have a home without ducts, then you’ll need to consider whether you want duct construction done, or if you want to opt for a heating system that doesn’t require ducts, such as a ductless mini split heat pump.
Heating installation requires a large amount of work and technical skill: not only should you rely on professionals to handle the job, but you should also rely on their knowledge to help you consider all the important factors that go into picking the right heater. Ace Air Conditioning has the decades of experience necessary to make your Livingston, CA heating installation go smoothly and leave you with the heater that fits you and your home.
