Professional Heating Installation
Your furnace or heating system is a major component of your home. Internal repairs or new furnace installation can be dangerous if not handled by a professional. The installation process includes handling electrical components, combustion equipment, and sharp metals. Because of the hazards involved, HVAC contractors must complete a certification program and complete at least 3-5 years of apprenticeship. A poor furnace installation is a waste of both time and money but can also lead to gas leaks, carbon monoxide, and house fires. Most companies will void the warranty if the unit was installed or repaired by a homeowner. That’s why choosing our experienced heating company to handle your next heating installation or replacement is a great decision.
Pick the Right Heating System for Your Home
The most popular type of heating system in Louisville is a gas furnace. Natural gas is commonly used across the country because of the low operational costs and fewer emissions. However, some homeowners prefer not to use natural gas and there are areas where it is not an option due to infrastructure. For those who aren’t using natural gas, there are several alternative types of heating systems available:
Furnace: Though natural gas is the most common, there are furnaces available that run on electricity, propane, or oil and function much the same as a natural gas furnace by heating air and pushing it through the ducting system.
Boiler: A boiler is another popular heating system that uses hot water through pipes to heat the house. This allows you to keep some areas warm and others cool, but it’s a less efficient system and is more expensive to install and use.
Heat Pump: A heat pump uses electricity to transfer heat throughout the home. It doesn’t generate new air like a gas furnace. So, they work OK in mild climates, but won’t heat a home where outside temperatures dip below 40 degrees on a regular basis.
Hybrid Heating: A hybrid heating system combines a central air gas furnace with a gas pump. With this combination, you can use the heat pump to both heat and cool your home during mild months, and only kick on the heat when it gets below freezing outside.
Ductless Mini-Splits: These are essentially single-room systems you can place in only the rooms you use. This is most helpful in homes that don’t have ductwork installed. Each room has its own thermostat and its own controls. This works pretty well, but gets expensive if you’re heating more than two rooms.
Radiant Heating: This is heating through tubing in the floor, ceiling, or walls. This system lasts a long time and tends to work well, but if you need a repair, it can be very expensive.
Baseboard Heaters: This is generally used as a supplemental heating option or an add-on to another system. Baseboard heating can be installed as an electric or hydronic option based on what is available in your area.
