What's the Best Heating System for Your Ohio Home?

best-heating-system-for-ohio-homes.jpgWhen you need a new heating system installation in Ohio, investing your time in choosing the best system will result in greater comfort and overall satisfaction for years to come. Because winters in Ohio are long and harsh, start with a trusted HVAC contractor who can provide the expertise each step of the way for system selection, sizing and installation.These systems are by far the most common way to heat homes because they're affordable, easy to install, and provide dependable heat regardless of the weather. Gas furnaces carry efficiency ratings called AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency). Ratings start at 80 and go into the high 90s. A higher AFUE indicates better efficiency. While it'll cost more initially, it will pay for itself in lower fuel consumption. 

Heat Pumps

In the winter, a heat pump harvests the heat from the outside air and transfers it indoors. Opting for a heat pump heating system installation in Ohio makes sense if you need an efficient cooling system, as well as a heating system upgrade. In the heating mode, they work exceptionally efficiently until temperatures fall into the mid- to low-30s.A heat pump combined with a gas furnace will deliver affordable heating for your home regardless of the outside temperatures. These hybrid furnaces give you the best of both worlds for home comfort.

Radiant Heating Systems

Radiant heating systems offer quiet, dust-free comfort, since they circulate a heated liquid, instead of heating air and blowing it through ductwork. They're a good choice if someone in your home has airborne allergies or other respiratory problems. Radiant tubing can be placed along the perimeter of rooms or in the floors. They heat evenly and comfortably, although they do take longer to warm a home initially. A gas radiant heating system offers far more efficiency than electric baseboard heating. P.K.
