What Heating System is Right for Your Charleston Home?
Shopping for a new heating system can be an overwhelming prospect. Since the average furnace lasts between 15 and 20 years, this isn’t a task you’ll take on very often. Make sure you’re purchasing a new heating installation that’s a good fit for your Charleston, South Carolina, home, and consider all your options carefully before settling on a new pick.
If you’re looking for a straightforward replacement for your heating system with ductwork, a traditional furnace is the best option. We offer a wide selection of furnaces to suit your budget and your needs. Consult with one of our trained HVAC technicians for proper sizing to make sure you have a good fit for your square footage. Check the AFUE rating for an idea of how your new system’s efficiency will stand up to the old. The higher this number, the more efficient your installation.
Efficient Heat Pumps
Heat pumps offer both heating and cooling. Rather than generating heat, a heat pump simply moves it. In winter, it pulls heat from the outside air and brings it in. During the summer months, this system reverses its function, pulling heat from the air inside your home and directing it outdoors. This is extremely energy efficient. Some heat pumps are also ductless, making them ideal for spaces without existing ductwork.
Innovative Geothermal Systems
Geothermal heating systems operate similarly to heat pumps, but they pull heat from the earth rather than the air. A geothermal system features liquid-filled loops that run underground, where temperatures are consistent year-round. This is another installation that works for both heating and cooling. Though it’s more expensive to install, it’s an eco-friendly choice with great returns in the form of energy savings.
