Our technicians are fully trained to work on any type of heating system. They can install, repair, replace and maintain whatever type of system you have no matter how old it is or who put it in. They can also provide you with some valuable advice and insight into which type of system would be the best for your home.
It’s really never fun when something goes wrong with your furnace, especially because it usually happens right when you need that extra heat the most. When you call us for emergency repairs, we’ll have someone out to help you as quickly as possible. We know you need to keep your family safe and comfortable on those cold winter nights, so we’ll make sure you’re not without heat for any longer than absolutely necessary.
We also handle new home construction heating installation and replacements of existing systems both residentially and commercially. No project is too big or too small for our technicians, and we have a great deal of experience working as part of a construction team.
Types of Furnaces
We offer many different types of heating systems, so you’re sure to find something to suit your needs. It’s quite common for people to assume that the type of heating system you have in place is the only one that can work in your home. While this is sometimes true, it’s certainly not a universal fact.
So when you’re looking to purchase a new heating system, it’s helpful to know what your options really are. We install gas and electric furnaces, as well as forced air heating systems that provide heated air through a network of ducts and vents placed throughout your home.
While installing these ducts can be a substantial undertaking if you don’t already have them in place, it may well be worth the investment. On the other hand, if you already have a central air conditioning system, incorporating a forced air heating system into that is often quite manageable.
What is an AFUE Rating?
When you’re looking at different types of heating systems, you’ll notice that they all come with some type of AFUE rating. Typically, the furnaces you can buy today are 80% AFUE or 90+%. This rating has to do with the unit’s energy efficiency, and so with the 90+% AFUE furnaces, you’re getting a system that will turn almost all of the fuel it uses directly into heat for your home.
Of course, the more efficient furnaces are also the more expensive ones, so deciding which one is right for you may not be quite so straightforward. Essentially it comes down to how much you will be using your heating system. If you think it will be getting a workout during extremely cold winter months, you will probably offset the higher initial cost of the 90+% AFUE furnace with your monthly energy savings.
However, 80% AFUE furnaces are also pretty energy efficient, so if you live in an area that has more mild winters, it’s probably not worth it to spring for the super high efficiency heating system. The small amount you’d save every year with a 90+% AFUE furnace in that type of situation means that it would take you years and years to really offset the higher installation cost.
