While winters may be mild, you still want to be certain that you’re able to heat your home effectively and efficiently for its duration.

Furnaces

While some homeowners may find furnaces a bit excessive in this area, the fact is that the furnace is still the most popular home heating system out there. It’s not difficult to understand why this is, either. After all, furnaces may run on natural gas, propane, and electricity, meaning that they can fit a lot of home’s fuel needs. Their heating and distribution of air means that the furnace can bring up temperatures in homes promptly, too. They do require air ducts in able to function, but can share the same ductwork as a central AC—which is obviously a pretty common parts of homes out here.

Ductless Systems

Not interested in using air ducts to heat your home? Then why not use a ductless mini split system, instead? Ductless mini splits offer heating via heat pump technology, which means that they can both heat and cool homes. The heating is especially efficient, too, since no new heat is generated. Instead, heat pumps make use of ambient heat in the air outside. Ductless mini splits further boost efficiency by eliminating the risk of duct leaks and allowing for simple zone control, as well.

Dual Fuel Systems

A dual fuel system combines both a heat pump and a gas furnace. Why invest in a furnace if you have a heat pump anyway? Security. While modern heat pumps will almost certainly be effective throughout our heating season,  they can lose some efficiency when temperatures dip too low. By including a gas furnace in the system, a dual fuel system gives you a second option that will run automatically when it is the more efficient option.

Heat Pumps

Like the sound of transferring heat from the air outside into your home for very affordable comfort, but not sure that a dual fuel system is necessary or that you want to use ductless mini splits? Then simply opt for a standard air-to-air heat pump. This system looks just like a central AC, doubles as a heater and a cooling system, and uses just one set of ductwork.
