Trying to pick the right type of heating system for your home can feel daunting – but it doesn’t have to be! At Air Today Heating & Cooling, we understand that investing in a new system is a big decision and are here to help make sure you make the best choice. With so many different types of heating systems on the market, which one should you choose? Let’s break down the most popular options below: 

Furnace

Furnaces are among the most common types of heating system and come in many sizes, shapes and levels of efficiency. Typically powered by gas or electricity, they work by pulling air from outside into the unit before pushing it through ducts throughout your house. Furnaces tend to be simple to maintain and are usually found installed in crawlspaces and attics. 

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps move heat from one place to another instead of generating it. They are typically more efficient than furnaces if used in moderate climates because they take advantage of ground-source heat during colder months as opposed to burning fuel like furnaces do. While these systems require maintenance just like furnaces, they may not be suitable for extreme winter weather conditions since they can be unreliable when temperatures drop too low. 

Boiler Systems

Boilers use natural gas or electric energy to heat water that is then circulated through radiators located throughout your house (or heated with convection currents). This method allows for constant circulation of warm air without any drastic changes between cycles like other kinds of heating systems may experience. One downside is that boiler systems tend to be less energy efficient than other types which can lead to higher bills over time – though regular maintenance and inspection can help keep costs down as much as possible.
