“Which Heater Is Right for Me?”

Last week, we discussed the signs that you might need a new heater. This week, we want to discuss the type of new heater that might be right for you. It’s a big decision all on its own that you need a new heater and choosing a new heater is an even bigger decision. This is why we like to lend our expertise to homeowners. We never want this to be a venture you take on your own without the right knowledge. If you need help with your heating upgrade in Layton, UT, then you’ve found the right blog. We’re going to go through all the common heaters we work with and discuss their benefits. 

As always, we’re professionals who go the extra mile. If you want to discuss your heating options further, then we’re always here to help you. We know that finding the right heater for you is a process and we’re willing to go on the journey with you.

The Pros of Various Heating Systems

There are different benefits to different heating systems. Let’s get to know a few below. 

Furnaces

Furnaces are the belle of the ball when it comes to heating in Layton and across the entire country. They’re the most common type of heating system by a large margin. This is because furnaces are effective, reliable, and also familiar to most homeowners. 

In the modern day, furnaces have only gotten better. Older furnaces have AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) ratings of about 80%. Now, furnaces have AFUE ratings as high as 98% and 80% is the manufacturer minimum. If you like forced-air heating and you’re looking for an upgrade that’s compatible with a centralized network of ducts, we’d recommend a furnace. 

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are typically the heater we recommend to homeowners who think green. Heat pumps are great because they’re eco-friendly. Instead of generating heat in a way that a furnace would, heat pumps simply move warm air where you need it. We know that this can be a bit perplexing in winter because it gets cold in Layton, but there’s always enough heat outdoors to pull from. 

Another great thing about heat pumps is that they can cool in summer as well. There’s nothing like having all your HVAC services performed from one system. We’d recommend this unit if you’re looking to streamline your comfort and reduce your carbon footprint. 

Ductless Mini Splits

Ductless mini splits are great if you’re looking for personalized comfort. All homes have some level of heating imbalance, but some homes struggle more than others. If you live in an older home or a home with multiple stories, we’d recommend choosing a ductless mini split. Ductless mini splits are great because they use individual air handlers. This gives you the power to heat rooms individually. Ductless mini splits are also heat pumps. This means that you can also cool using this system. We’d recommend this type of unit if you’re seeking adaptability and better comfort in your home.
