Have any homeowners out there seen the extensive list of heating installations we perform? If not, we advise anyone to look at the categories listed underneath our “heating” section on the main page of our website. From boilers, to ductless mini splits, to the typical gas furnace, it’s hard to find a heating system that we don’t work on. That’s because of a simple principle—that there’s a right heater for every home, experts just have to do a little bit of leg work to find it!
Homeowners want quality heating in Rockland, NY. Now, they might think that can be done by just having a new furnace installed in their home, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes ductwork is in bad shape, or a home is just too old to house a forced-air heating system correctly. These homes aren’t worse, they’re different, and they require an alternative approach to heating installation.
5 Systems to Consider for 2021
In this blog post we’re going to give a quick breakdown on each of five systems we offer services for. Each one is designed differently, could be perfect for a different home, and is worth looking into if homeowners want an alternative solution to the heater that’s on its way out.
Boilers and Radiant Heating Systems
Boilers and radiant heating systems are water-based (hydronic) ways to keep a home warm. They go back centuries in origin, and they’ve only gotten more efficient and effective as time has gone on. Boilers give off a warmth that radiates through objects instead of being in the heated air that flows through vents. If anyone is looking for a long-lasting and comfortable heating system, then a boiler or radiant heating system could be perfect for many homeowners out there.
Ductless Mini Splits
Ductless mini splits are a type of heat pump that run refrigerant from an outdoor cabinet through up to four indoor air handlers. These air handlers can warm specific rooms or areas of a home to a warmth level that’s acceptable to many homeowners in our area, and they run at record efficiency levels. To anyone looking for a high-efficiency heating method that can be customized depending on the size of a home, it might make sense to look into ductless heat pumps.
Hybrid Heating Systems
Why choose a furnace or a heat pump when homeowners can just have both? Hybrid heating systems allow for maximum efficiency by using heat pump technology when temperatures are mild, with a gas furnace for when winters get extremely cold and homeowners need that extra heating boost.
Gas furnaces are the tried and tested most common method for heating a home in the country. They’re affordable, efficient, effective, and they just work. That does the trick for many people in our area.
Heat pumps can use the ductwork in a home to become both a heating and cooling system. This provides comfort throughout an entire year and at efficiency levels that save money too! This is basically an air conditioning system that can function in reverse by drawing heat into a home instead of drawing it out.
