Are you in the market for a new heating system in Dover? At Boulden’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, we have several options to choose from, and we can go over all your choices and help you select the right one for your home.
Here are a few of options to consider.
Whether they are gas, electric, or oil furnaces, there are many different models on the market that can produce highly efficient heat for your home. You’ll need to know about AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) numbers to compare the different ones. Also, there are different sizes that produce different amounts of BTUs, which is the heating capacity. The heating output for your home will depend on the square footage of the places you want to heat and your comfort needs. A Dover, DE heating contractor should be able to assess your home and help you select the right size and type.
Heat pumps are so efficient because, unlike more traditional heating and cooling systems, they do not consume a fuel in order to create energy. Heat pumps make use of existing energy by utilizing heat transfer technology while maintaining comfort levels in your home. A small amount of energy is used to basically move heat from one location to another. There are also geothermal heat pumps available, but check with your contractor to see if these systems are right for your home and location.
Boilers use hot water circulated to radiators to heat your home. These types of systems don’t need ductwork, which means they avoid any of the inefficiencies associated with leaky ducts. Boilers can also be used to heat your water instead of having a separate water heater.
