What Should I Know About HVAC Options To Heat And Cool My New Home or Office?
There are so many new home heating options on the market that sometimes it can feel overwhelming when deciding the best option for your new home or business. At Herr & Company, we believe that an informed client is the best type so we put together this information to provide some helpful information:
Furnaces– This is still one of the most prevalent options on the market. A furnace blows heated air through ducting installed throughout the home. It is fueled by electricity, propane or natural gas.
Boilers– Boilers aren’t as prevalent in the Southeast as they are in other parts of the country, but they are still a viable option to consider. Boilers heat up water that passes through radiators or furnaces to heat rooms in your home.
Heat Pumps– Heat pumps do double duty acting as an air conditioning unit and heating unit. During the summer the heat pump sends heated air outside and in the winter reverses that action.
What Are The Pros And Cons Of The Different Options?
Each heating option has advantages and disadvantages worth considering. Furnaces are the most cost effective options and are extremely prevalent which makes finding a service technician easy. Because they push heated air through ducting, their filters need to be changed every couple of months. It’s a simple replacement but worth noting. Boilers are extremely quiet. You won’t experience the noise of conventional furnaces. The disadvantage of boilers is that they can leak which can cause water damage to your home if you aren’t frequently inspecting your unit. Heat pumps are super efficient and take advantage of the natural ebb and flow of temperatures in your home. The disadvantage is that they’re expensive at the initial purchase.
