What Options Do I Have for Installing a New Heating System?
Do you feel that it’s time for a brand new heating system? Poor performance, low efficiency, sudden breakdowns, and ineffective heat distribution from an outdated heating unit are a few of the reasons that homeowners decide to upgrade. But you may have a few questions before you get in touch with a technician. Do you need to get the same type of system you had before? Is there a better option? Check out our quick guide to selecting a heating system, and call our experts for more information.
If you have heating ducts in the home
Many older homes are built without any ductwork already installed on the home. If your home does have a set of ducts installed, the conventional gas or electric furnace is still an excellent option. The efficiency of these systems has improved significantly over the last several decades, so you won’t have to worry about high costs of operation. A heat pump is also an option (a heating and air conditioning system combination), but while it is efficient most of the year, low outdoor temperatures strain the unit and lead to higher bills.
If there are no ducts in your home
For new home additions and detached structures outside of the home, a properly ventilated garage heater will likely suffice. But for most ductless situations, investing in a boiler is one of the best things you can do for your comfort. The warmth and efficiency of these units cannot be beat, and most systems last decades with few repairs needed during that time.
If you want to save some money
We recommend that you prioritize saving money on your monthly bills over saving money on a brand new system. A high-efficiency unit can save you a lot of money over the years, and all of those savings can really add up. Over time, the initial cost of the system can be offset by the amount you’ve saved in your monthly spending. Select a high-efficiency heating system with an AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating of 90 or higher.
