To choose the right home heating system for you, keep in mind these tips:
1. Get to know the heating systems available to you
The most efficient heating system types on the market today are:
Heat Pumps – Heat pumps are similar to your air conditioning system, except instead of pumping out cold air they release heat. They are the most efficient option, letting you enjoy sufficient heating for your home without consuming too much energy. Moreover, should such a system fail at any point, you’ll find heat pump repair services readily available.
Furnace systems – Although generally energy-efficient, a furnace system’s performance will often depend on the type of climate you live in. Places that don’t require much heat will find base model furnace systems sufficient, while those that call for more heat will need mid-efficiency to high-efficiency models. Furnace systems typically run on oil, gas or propane.
Hybrid Heat Pump/Furnace Systems – If you’re concerned about the fuel source for your heating system, then hybrid heat pump/furnace systems would be an ideal choice.
2. Decide on a distribution system
When you already have a particular heating system in mind, your next step will entail deciding on how you want heat to be distributed in your home. The most typical distribution model is forced air, where heated air finds its way around your home as it is forced through air ducts. If your home already has air ducts, this is an ideal choice.
However, some homes are fitted with tubes that carry heat throughout the home. This system is more reliable in terms of equal heating distribution, so you can more or less expect the same temperature throughout the home.
Choosing the right heating and distribution system will be critical to improving comfort levels in your home. For assistance during the selection process, just give Dittmer Air & Heat a call at (321) 637-0171. We also provide HVAC repair services for homes in and around Brevard County.
