FURNACE INSTALLATION & REPAIR

Your home’s heating needs can account for up to two-thirds of your annual energy bill, so it’s important that we inspect your current furnace to ensure it is not too old, too large or too small for the job it is being asked to do.

Most U.S. homes are heated with either furnaces or boilers. Furnaces heat air and distribute the heated air through the house using ducts; boilers heat water, providing either hot water or steam for heating. Steam is distributed via pipes to steam radiators, and hot water can be distributed via baseboard radiators or radiant floor systems, or can heat air via a coil.

Replacing the old furnace in your central heating system with a new, more efficient model can offset volatile energy prices. Money aside, today’s furnaces pollute less and boost comfort by producing heat more steadily than older furnaces. Gas is the most common heating fuel and this report focuses on gas furnaces.

Each brand of furnace offers a similar array of key features, depending on price. Some of the features are: Variable Speed Blowing, Variable Heat Output, Air Filtration, Dual Heat Exchanger, Ignition System, Zoned Heating, and Warranty.

PROGRAMMABLE THERMOSTAT INSTALLATION

Comfortable temperatures. Operating efficiency. Energy savings. It is all part of an ideal environment. Our Programmable Thermostats are simple and customer-friendly.

HERE ARE SOME OTHER FEATURES:

  • Large, easy-to-read backlit touchscreen display
  • Programmable thermostats
  • Personalized in-home display provides customer usage and billing information
  • Web programmable
  • State-of-the-art demand response functionality
  • One-piece design for easy installation
  • More convenient and accurate than manual thermostats
  • Contains no mercury
  • Accurate, precise temperature control +/-1 degree

Programmable thermostats earn the ENERGY STAR by meeting strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the government. These units save energy by offering 4 convenient, pre-programmed temperature settings‚ and settings that try to anticipate when it’s convenient for you to scale back on heating or cooling.

If you are like many homeowners and work outside the home during the day and have a different schedule on the weekend, a programmable thermostat can offer many benefits, and the return on your investment is usually within 1 year.

Programmable thermostats automatically adjust your home’s temperature settings, allowing you to save energy while you’re away or sleeping.


HEAT PUMP INSTALLATION & REPAIR

A heat pump can be used to provide heating or cooling. Even though the heat pump can heat, it still uses the same basic refrigeration cycle to do this.

A Residential Split System Heat Pump is a year ’round comfort system. In the summer it draws heat out of your home to keep it cool, and in the winter it draws heat from outside air into your home to keep it warm. Many heat pump installations have a booster electrical resistance heater that automatically supplements heat brought in from the outside. Outside air always has heat in it – even at very low outdoor temperatures.

HEAT PUMP’S USE ELECTRICITY AS THEIR POWER SOURCE, AND REQUIRES:

  • An outdoor Heat Pump section
  • A matching indoor gas (natural or propane) or oil furnace with coil, or air handler
  • Ductwork to transfer the heated or cooled air throughout the home

You can explore the many ways to save on central air products and service today, and also consider the annual savings and future home re-sale benefits that a central air conditioning system offers you.


BOILER INSTALLATION & REPAIR

Your home’s heating needs can account for up to two-thirds of your annual energy bill, so it’s important that we inspect your current furnace to ensure it is not too old, too large or too small for the job it is being asked to do.

Most U.S. homes are heated with either furnaces or boilers. Boilers heat water, providing either hot water or steam for heating. Steam is distributed via pipes to steam radiators, and hot water can be distributed via baseboard radiators or radiant floor systems, or can heat air via a coil. Steam boilers operate at a higher temperature than hot water boilers, and are inherently less efficient, but high-efficiency versions of all types of furnaces and boilers are currently available.

In hydronic heating, boilers circulate hot water or steam through a system of baseboard heating units, radiators, or in-floor radiant tubing. Baseboard units provide a combination of radiated heat from cast iron surfaces — like the heat you feel from the sun — and converted heat from copper fins — heat that rises through the air. This configuration provides the most quiet, even, and clean heat available.

Boilers have been around since the 1920s, and have recently enjoyed a resurgence as the heating system of choice.
