3 Heating System Installation Considerations

A heating system installation is absolutely essential this fall if you expect to live comfortably throughout the season. However, the buying process needs to be taken into consideration before you throw money at any random heating system or else it may be one long season filled with plenty of frustration. Trying to keep your home warm during the fall and winter already comes at a high cost. According to the United States Department of Energy, heating costs account for 48% of a typical home energy budget. If you do not want heating to interfere too much with your own budget, you cannot afford to make the mistake of installing the wrong system. In addition to increased spending, the wrong heating system may also bring increased spending on repair service due to frequent breakdowns and reduced efficiency. All of these problems can put your family’s level of comfort this season in jeopardy, and it’s better to instead take time in making the right choice.

3 Different Types of Heating System Installation Options

The next time you are unsure over what heating system would be right for you, consider this overview of the 3 most common types of heating systems offered on the market to ensure you are spending your money on the right one:

  1. Furnaces: Furnaces are either fueled by either gas or electricity. They have a smaller installation cost compared to other types of heating systems. Since furnaces on the market today are highly efficient, they will cost you much less than previous models and will be able to work at a high level of quality. Newer furnaces also boast quieter operation and provide a more consistent flow of warm air. The United States Department of Energy also reports that gas furnaces in particular feature a second heat exchange and an AFUE rating of up to 98.5%. When energy efficiency is your highest priority for the colder months, you will definitely want to consider a furnace installation.
  2. Ductless Systems: Ductless systems, also known as mini-split systems, may boast a higher installation cost, but their level of efficiency makes them a must-have. While options like heat pumps force warm air through ducts, these systems will put more focus on giving heat to a specific zone. They may be smaller in size, but they also operate on less power and offer greater temperature control. In addition, their zoning abilities will provide heat to specific rooms of your home that need it the most. They also help preserve indoor air quality, eliminating any harmful air contaminants like dust and other allergens due to their multi-stage filtration. 
  3. Heat Pumps Heat pumps will heat your home using electricity. While they, like ductless systems, have a higher installation cost, they are less reliant on gas. Unlike any other heating system on the market, they can be useful year-round. During the fall and winter, they will absorb warmth from the ground or atmosphere and deliver it to your home. During the summer months, they reverse the process and work as an air conditioner. Heat pumps also cut out the need for a humidifier since they will only produce dry heat. Possibly the best thing about heat pumps is their environmental friendliness.

The next time you are unsure which of these 3 heating system installation options would be right for you, please call Precision for further guidance.
