Type of Of Heating Systems:


If you have a home that runs on natural gas, you may have found your fit. Furnaces are typically the best choice for heating homes that run on natural gas. Furnaces typically have high-efficiency ratings and are relatively affordable. They are also built to last the different seasons of the year. The only downside about furnaces is that as technology advances and the DOE pushes for cleaner forms of heating, furnaces may not be the best option for a long-term heating system. 

Heat Pump

Heat Pump: Is It The Most-Cost Effective Heating System?

Do you love a 2-for-1 deal? Then you may have found the perfect HVAC system for your home. Heat pumps act as both a heating system and an air conditioning unit. This multi-use unit is known for its air filtration and for making less noise than a furnace. One of the biggest discrepancies between furnaces to heat pumps is that heat pumps use less gas and more electrical resources to power them. 


Boilers are an “old-school” way of heating your home. They, as the name suggests, boilers heat a large tank of water to produce heat. This method is known to be more effective than a furnace, but pricey to maintain throughout its lifespan.
