The following shares some helpful information about the different types of residential heating systems and how they generally work. Whenever you need more answers or any type of service for any of these heating systems, don’t hesitate to contact the trusted team at Short Pump Heating & Air!
Gas Furnace Services
A gas furnace can use either natural gas or propane as a fuel source. Both types are very common in the Richmond, VA, area. In fact, the majority of houses in North America rely on gas furnaces for home heating.
Gas furnaces work by
Producing flames through a combustion process to heat a metal heat exchanger
Transferring heat via the heat exchanger to the air flowing through the duct system
Our experienced heating system technicians have comprehensive knowledge of how to install, maintain, repair, and replace all types of gas furnace heating systems.
Oil Furnace Replacements
An oil furnace operates similarly to gas furnaces. The difference is the fuel source, which is oil. Oil is expensive, and the systems can be messy. Most households with oil furnace systems are looking for an alternative.
While we do not service or install oil furnaces, we often assist homeowners in converting their old oil furnaces to a gas furnace or a heat pump. We provide free estimates for this service, and we can recommend the best type of heating system for you, based on your needs and budget.
Heat pump systems are another common heating system in and around the Richmond, VA, area. They are incredibly efficient in milder winter weather, and they rely only on electricity to generate heat.
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!
Need to install, maintain, repair, or replace a heat pump?
Boilers are commonly in older homes in the Richmond area. Instead of heating 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 run on natural gas, propane, or oil. Natural gas boilers are the most popular option of the three.
The Right Residential Heating System for Your Home
When it is time to install a brand new heating system in your home, we will always provide you with a free, zero-hassle written estimate. We will visit your home to discuss your different heat source options, taking the time to understand your needs, preferences, and budget so we can make the best recommendations. Our team is also happy to walk you through every step of the process moving forward, from planning where to install the system to tearing out an old unit and handling the complete installation.
How Energy Efficient Are New Heating Systems?
Gas furnace heating systems are anywhere from 80 to 98% efficient. The standard efficiency for heating systems is about 80%. These percentages describe the ratio of heat going into your home versus out of the exhaust.
A multi-stage operation is another feature that will significantly improve efficiency. Heat pump efficiency is rated in terms of “heating seasonal performance factor” (HSPF). The minimum HSPF in Richmond, VA is 8.2. The standard for ENERGY STAR systems is 8.5. HSPF can be just as important as a heat pump SEER rating for gauging year-round efficiency.
When the colder weather starts to arrive, it is time to start thinking about your furnace. A furnace maintenance service is a great way to ensure that your system is working correctly and as efficiently as possible. Regular furnace maintenance will help keep everything clean, efficient, and safe. It will also help prevent unexpected and expensive breakdowns. ‘
