Let’s take a look at a few of your options.
- Furnace. The trusty and sturdy furnace has been a staple of the American home for well over 50 years, in part due to their cost-effectiveness and powerful heating performance. They are forced air distribution systems that require ductwork. Today’s furnaces are typically fueled by natural gas or electricity, and they offer great AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) ratings, so that you can ensure your energy is being used efficiently. If you’ve already got reliable ductwork, furnace replacement can make an excellent option.
- Heat Pump. Heat pumps work a lot like an air conditioner: they transfer heat using a cycle of pressurized refrigerant. But, unlike an AC, they work both to cool your home in the summer by removing heat from your home, and to heat your home in the winter by removing heat from even the coldest air and heating your home. They are highly efficient, run on electricity and work year-round. For customers concerned with their effectiveness on the coldest of nights, they can often be paired with a gas furnace for optimal efficiency.
- Boiler. They not only heat water or steam for distribution throughout your home’s baseboard piping or radiators; they can also be used in place of a water heater to supply your fixtures and faucets.
The key to a successful installation is finding the right match. Always work with a certified professional to make sure you’re getting the best heater for your home and budget. Call DB Heating & Cooling today for Westwood, NJ heating installation!
