Wrong Sized Unit

The first issue that may be causing problems with the heater is that homeowners have the wrong sized unit. This may seem like a no-brainer, but it actually does occur pretty frequently, especially if homeowners did not have much help or guidance at the time of their heater installation. There are a number of different problems that can occur if there is incorrect sizing.

For one, the heater will likely malfunction in one way or another. For example, a heater that is too small will likely be unable to heat the home entirely because it will lack the capacity to do so. On the flip side, if the heater is too large, it will likely be on overdrive and result in overheating the home, which can be hugely problematic and potentially dangerous! If homeowners require advice, they should get help from a professional heater service whose professionals can guide them in the sizing process.
