When it comes to an efficient and versatile performance, it is difficult to top the heat pump. Heat pumps do not generate heat via combustion or electric resistance in the manner of more traditional heating systems. Instead, they make use of existing heat in the air outside in order to warm a home in a very affordable manner. Using only a small amount of electricity, a heat pump absorbs heat from the air outside, compresses it, and uses that thermal energy to warm one’s living space.
The boiler is one of oldest methods of residential heating out there, and is also one of the most dependable. If you have used a boiler in the past, you know how well these systems operate, and you’ll likely want to replace your old system with another oil burner, or perhaps convert to a gas boiler. If you haven’t been using a boiler, though, this can be a difficult time of the year to have one installed. You’ll need to have a distribution system set up, and that can be a sizable undertaking.
Both gas and electric furnaces are quality heating systems, though the high cost of electricity in comparison to natural gas leads many homeowners to opt for the gas furnace. These systems are not only efficiently and reliable, but they can share ductwork with your central AC system as well, so the replacement of a heating system with a furnace can be rather convenient if there is existing ductwork in place.
