Types of home heating systems

Gas furnace

  • A gas furnace can either use natural gas or propane as a fuel source. Both are very common in the Richmond, VA area. In fact, the majority of houses in North America rely on gas furnaces for home heating. Flames produced through the combustion process heat a metal heat exchanger. This heat exchanger transfers heat to the air which flows through the duct system. We have comprehensive knowledge of all gas furnace heating systems. We repair and replace all types of gas furnaces.

Oil furnace

  • An oil furnace operates just like the gas furnaces. The difference is the fuel source, which is oil. We do not service or install oil furnaces. Most households with oil are looking for an alternative. Oil is expensive, and the systems can be messy. We often assist homeowners with converting their old oil furnace to a gas furnace or heat pump. We provide free estimates for converting an oil furnace to a heat pump system or gas furnace system.

Heat Pumps

  • Heat Pump systems are typical in the Richmond climate and further South. They are incredibly efficient in milder winter weather. Heat pump systems rely only on electricity for their heating production. We install new heat pump systems every day for our customers. We also provide maintenance agreements and repair services on all heat pump systems. Give us a call to discuss any of your heat pump installation or repair questions!

Boilers

  • You can find boilers in older homes in the Richmond area. Instead of heating the air, they heat water. That water is sent through a radiator system to provide heat to the house. Boilers offer great heat. They can be natural gas boilers, propane boilers, or oil boilers. Most homes will have a natural gas boiler. We service and repair all types of gas boiler heating systems. We also install new boiler heating systems.

How energy efficient are new heating systems?

Gas furnace heating systems are anywhere from 80%-98% efficient. The standard efficiency is 80%. Your home efficiency is the percentage of heating going into your home vs. out the exhaust. A multi-stage operation is another feature that will significantly improve efficiency. Heat pump efficiency is rated in HSPF. That stands for heating seasonal performance factor. The minimum HSPF allowed in Richmond, VA is 8.2, while energy star standard is 8.5. HSPF is just as important (if not more) as heat pump SEER rating for gauging year-round efficiency. Carrier has heat pumps as high as 13 HSPF, which is incredible heating efficiency.
