Heating & Air
Advancements heating and air conditioning technology has greatly improved over the years making home comfort just as important and the operating efficiency. Systems are now available with multi-stage compressors and gas valves, air flow has improved dramatically with the use of variable speed blowers making air distribution to those hard to condition spaces possible.
A furnace is an enclosed heating unit that heats air by transferring heat in a metal combustion chamber to the air and circulating it throughout heating ducts in the house. The air conditioning system is connected to the furnace to provide cooling in the summer months.
A heat pump is an electric system that provides heating and cooling by capturing existing outdoor heat in the winter and transfers the heat into the home. It simply reverses its cycle to provide cooling in the summer months. This conditioned air is distributed throughout the house via metal or flexible ducts.
The most efficient way to condition your home is with a hybrid system, this is a combination fossil fuel furnace with a heat pump. This is controlled by a thermostat that measures the outside air temperature and decides whether it is more economical to run the furnace or the heat pump.
Some people prefer a furnace. Some a heat pump. We can help you select the system that is best suited for your application.
