The fall weather is here and for many areas that means that the air conditioning unit can be turned off and you can enjoy the temperature outside. The break in using your air conditioner and heater is the perfect time to have them inspected and maintained. This is often the moment that you find your heating unit may need to be replaced. Your heater will have a manufactured amount of time that it should last based on the care it was given. When yours is going out you want to have it replaced as soon as you can. When it comes to heating units there are some options you can choose from. They each work differently and have pros and cons. The best way to know which heating unit is right for you is to ask a professional. They can talk to you about the heater that you have and what it would take to change to a different kind. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning lists the different heating unit options available for your home below.
How Does a Furnace Work in a House?
When it comes to the most common type of heating systems used in most places in the United States, the furnace is at the top of the list. The furnace works with the same duct work that you use when running your air conditioner. The furnace will either use electricity or gas to run the appliance. When it runs the gas or energy is burned which in turn heats the air that is being forced past. The heated air is then sent through the duct work that can then fill a home and heat it to a degree that you set your thermostat to. This is a great way to heat a home when it is maintained and repaired when necessary. You want to ask your HVAC technician which size is right and what element of energy is used.
How Does a Heat Pump Work in Cold Weather?
When you are looking to have a heat pump installed you need to know what you are getting. The heat pump is not anything like a furnace and you should live in a very particular climate for it to work well for you. The heat pump does not heat up the air in your home. The unit will find the heated air and send it to other areas such as your home to warm it up. If the temperature outside your home gets too cold you may think about using a different type of heating system.
Should I Get a Boiler for My Home?
If you have a boiler installed in your home you are using a gas line as well as water to heat your home. A boiler is a great option for areas that are extremely cold therefore not well suited to our warm desert climate. A valve will open up and when it does the heat will start to warm up the water. The heater water then goes through the radiator in each room and lets of the heat that comes from the water.
