There are factors to consider when you’re looking for commercial heater replacement:


The Government offers tax credits on high efficiency heaters to offset the cost of installation. You could be eligible for rebates of up to $1500. Inquire with your contractor today.

Maintenance Contract:

A prerequisite for better ROI is an annual maintenance of your commercial heating system. With usage there will be debris and dirt build up in the system. If they are not attended to annually, an efficient system of SEER rating 16 might work like a 10, resulting in higher utility bills.

Make sure you initiate an annual maintenance contract with your service provider  to regularly service your commercial heating system.

AFUE Rating:

If your establishment uses a furnace, our technicians test AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) to judge its efficiency. If the count is below 80% it is time to think about replacement. Furnaces with variable fan speeds and controls can reach efficiencies of upto 97%, considerably reducing your utility bills.

Decision Making:

Before deciding on a replacement, consult an honest technician and find out if it can be fixed for less. In the instance that a replacement is necessary, make sure you know the advantages and disadvantages of the heating system you plan to go with. Don’t let cost be the only factor in your decision.

You should  keep in mind that supporting equipment such as thermostats and ductworks might also require repairing or replacement. Budget appropriately for these extras.

Estimates should include brand, size, efficiency, rating ,and warranty information. Make sure your contractor is qualified and adheres to the codes in your area.
