Residential Heating Installation
Staying warm in the winter is a top priority for those who see high volumes of snow, or even a blizzard, every winter.
Types of Residential Heating
Houses in America come in all shapes and sizes, so it makes sense that the heating systems will also be different for everyone. Some types of residential heating include:
- Furnaces are the traditional form of central heating in the home. A furnace delivers heat to your home through a series of air ducts.
- Heat Pumps control both the central heat and air for your home and are the easiest to repair or replace when something isn’t working correctly.
- Direct Heat includes any small floor or wall furnaces designed to put out a small amount of heat. Unless these are directly tied to your gas line, you likely won’t need to pay for expensive repairs if one starts to break.
Installing the Heating System
As with any large-scale home project, you need to call in professionals who know how to get the job done and do it well. When hiring a contractor to install your heating system make sure they are licensed and care about your safety. Don’t risk freezing this winter by hiring an amateur to do a professional’s job.
