What’s the Deal?

So, what’s the deal with each of these systems? Well, keep reading and you’ll find out!

First, Let’s Talk Furnace

Furnaces are by far the most popular home heating systems on the market today. Why? Because they’re efficient, effective, and reliable—these forced-air systems are capable of lasting for upwards of 15 years!

Furnaces come in two different models:

  • Gas Furnaces: Natural gas is a widely available and efficient fuel source, so we recommend one of these systems if your home has access to natural gas lines.
  • Electric Furnaces: Electric furnaces are definitely super-efficient. Electricity can be rather expensive but, if you live in an area where electricity is relatively cheap, then you might want to consider this type of heater.

Installing a furnace is a great way to keep you and your family warm and toasty, no matter the temperature outside.

What’s the Scoop on Heat Pumps?

Heat pumps work much like a traditional air conditioner, relying on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. But, what sets the heat pump apart from a standard AC is the reversing valve, which reverses the direction the refrigerant flows through the system. This allows home heating in addition to cooling!

That’s right: with just one system you’ll be able to heat and cool your home! And not only that, but these systems are super-efficient, highly effective, and come in both ducted and ductless models, so no matter how much space you have, you’ll be able to find a system suited for you!
