Types of Heating Units
If you are looking for a new heating system, you might be overwhelmed by the options out there. Our licensed and experienced heating technicians will discuss your home’s heating needs with you and walk you through the process, so you are matched with the perfect system.
- Gas Furnace: Gas will heat up your home fast and this type of furnace is often less expensive to operate than the electric counterpart. This unit does need regular maintenance in order to keep the combustible components running smoothly.
- Electric Furnace: If you don’t run your furnace very often, this could be a good solution for you. This type of furnace is cheaper to install and can be placed pretty much anywhere since there is no need for a vent.
- Heat Pump: Heat pumps are a cost- and energy-efficient heating and cooling solution. Because of the temperate California climate, this might be the perfect home comfort system.
Every home is different, which is why we proudly offer a variety of heating systems for installation and replacement. We are dedicated to keeping your home comfortable. Give our experienced technicians a call today to learn more about the heating systems we offer.
When is it Time to Install a New Heater?
Deciding when to install a new heating system depends on several factors, and it's essential to consider the efficiency, reliability, and overall condition of your current system.
Here are some signs that it may be time to install a new heating system:
Age of the System: Heating systems typically have a lifespan of 15-30 years, depending on the type and maintenance. If your system is approaching or has exceeded its expected lifespan, it may be more cost-effective to replace it with a newer, more efficient model.
Frequent Repairs: If you find yourself frequently repairing your heating system and the repair costs are becoming significant, it might be more economical to invest in a new system. Frequent breakdowns can also be a sign that the system is reaching the end of its life.
Decreased Efficiency: As heating systems age, they often become less efficient. If you notice a significant increase in your energy bills despite regular maintenance, it may be a sign that your heating system is struggling to operate efficiently.
Inconsistent Heating: Uneven heating throughout your home or rooms that are consistently too hot or too cold may indicate a problem with your heating system. Upgrading to a more modern and efficient system can help address these issues.
Outdated Technology: Older heating systems may use outdated technology that is less energy-efficient. Upgrading to a newer system can result in energy savings and improved performance.
Safety Concerns: If your heating system poses safety risks due to issues like carbon monoxide leaks, it's crucial to replace it immediately for the safety of your household.
Increased Energy Bills: If you notice a significant and unexplained increase in your heating bills, it could be a sign that your system is not operating efficiently. A new, more energy-efficient system can help reduce your energy consumption.
Changes in Home or Heating Needs: If you've made additions or renovations to your home, or if your heating needs have changed, your current system may no longer be adequate. In such cases, upgrading to a more suitable system is advisable.
Before making a decision, it's recommended to consult with a professional HVAC technician or specialist. They can assess the condition of your current system and guide whether repair or replacement is the best course of action based on your specific situation
