It’s often overlooked how much easier modern heating systems have made our day-to-day lives. For most of us, a warmer home is a simple matter of a thermostat adjustment — but before the last few generations, staying warm during the winter was a full-time job and took a lot of hard work and axe swinging. It can be easy to overlook all of this until you find yourself having to replace your heater or freeze.
Thankfully, the professionals here at E+M Emergency Air Conditioning are determined to make gathering wood a chore of the past by providing our customers with the highest quality heater installation services possible.
With over 25 years of experience, there isn’t a challenge we haven’t faced when it comes to Buda furnace replacement, and we’re eager and excited to extend that wealth of experience to every one of our customers.
While gas furnaces are by far the most common type of central heating method used in this part of the country, people are learning about the advantages of heat pumps and they’ve quickly become a popular energy-efficient alternative, but which is right for you? If ever there was a time to consider upgrading your heater, it’s when you have to replace it anyway. To help out, Here’s a brief rundown on each.
Furnaces are a reliable, tested heating technology that are capable of providing heat at any temperature if provided with a sufficient fuel source. Most run on natural gas, which is widely available and relatively cheap. Furnaces are typically centralized and distribute their air through the home’s ductwork.
Heat pumps are an all-electric form of heating that utilize refrigerant to draw in the minute amount of ambient heat from the air outdoors to concentrate it and distribute it indoors. Heat pumps are incredibly energy efficient and have the advantage of also being able to provide cooling during the summer months.
Heat pumps can be connected to the home’s ductwork, but there are ductless units available that distribute the heat through a series of air handlers rather than just a single centralized one.
The list of differences between a traditional furnace and a heat pump system is far too long to cover in this single article — and both come with their advantages and disadvantages. We are confident, however, that our technicians will be able to sit down with you so that you can assess your situation and decide on the best heater replacement for you.
The average lifespan of a heater depends on which type of technology you’re using to heat your home. With proper maintenance, most furnaces will last between 15 and 20 years while heat pumps will only last between 10 and 15 because they also provide cooling, which increases wear and tear.
Purchasing a new heater is an investment into your future peace and comfort, and like any investment, we think it’s worth protecting.
That’s why we’re proud to offer our customers access to the Proactive Maintenance Club! Members enjoy a prioritized level of service and the peace of mind of knowing that their new heater will be serviced and inspected every year by a professional that is committed to a standard of excellence that is equal to none.
