Best Heating System for Your Home

When the cold winter months roll around, you’ll need the help of a home heating system to ensure you and your family stay comfortable throughout the season. With so many advancements in the heating industry, there are more choices than ever before. Some of the most popular HVAC systems include furnaces, boilers, and heat pumps.

Furnaces

Furnaces are a very popular type of home heating system. They work by blowing the hot air through your home’s ventilation or ducting system. You’ll notice these referred to as forced-air heating systems by many real estate sites. Furnaces can receive many different types of fuel to run. These include oil, electricity, and natural gas.

When it comes to furnaces, their price will vary depending on the square footage that needs to be heated, the fuel rates for the type of fuel that you’ll be using, and so forth. Furnaces are a very widely available product that can be retrofitted to your home. If you have an existing furnace, you can make it more energy efficient by having us do some upgrades to your system.

Boilers

Boilers are also commonly referred to as radiant heating systems. This type of system works by heating air in the boiler until it turns into steam. The steam is then forced throughout your system to provide heat. Much like a furnace, boilers can be powered via electricity, natural gas, and even propane.

Instead of forced-air produced by a furnace, boilers utilize radiant heating systems throughout your home to heat up the rooms. These systems include baseboard heaters, aluminum panels, and traditional radiators. These systems can be attached to the walls or ceilings throughout your home. Due to their ability to be uniquely controlled room-to-room, boilers tend to be a popular choice for homeowners to heat their homes during the cold winter months.

Heat Pumps

These are a fairly newer HVAC system that utilizes the natural environment to heat your home. A heat pump has a refrigerant that allows it to absorb heat from an outside source. This could be the ground, air, or a body of water. Once the refrigerant is heated by the natural environment, an exchanger allows the heat to be transferred into your home.

Our HVAC professional will recommend this type of system for homeowners who are looking for a highly energy-efficient home heating system. Heat pumps are great for those who live in an area with temperate climates. There are still some government tax breaks that can help you to afford this type of home heating system.
