Home Heating System – Frequently Asked Questions
What are some home heating system alternatives?
The most common way to heat your home in Florida is with an HVAC furnace or Heat Pump. But there are a variety of other technologies available. Stay informed about the choices because there may be a time that you need to replace or upgrade your existing heating system.
- Active solar heating – The sun heats air or liquid enclosed in a panel. Homeowners often use solar heat as an additional heating source. Over time, it can pay for itself.
- Electric resistance heating – A costly way to heat your home, it converts the energy in electricity to heat. Electric heat is often more expensive than heat produced in the home using natural gas, propane, and oil furnaces.
- Heat pumps – Heat pumps draw heat from a cool area to a warm area, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps are energy-efficient.
- Radiant heat – These systems heat floors or panels in the wall or ceiling of a house. They may use a variety of energy sources—electricity, boilers, solar energy, or wood and pellet-fuel heating.
- Space Heaters – Portable heaters or small space heaters are often used when the existing heating system is not adequate for a home or apartment. Small space heaters can be affordable to use if you heat one room or supplement heat in one area. Most of these heaters can be dangerous if not used properly and precautions are not taken to ensure your safety.
- Wood and pellet-fuel heating – This is an alternative home heating method that uses biomass or waste sources for fuel. It can be expensive to convert your home from an electric or petroleum heat system to this method.
What are the advantages of owning a gas furnace?
Natural gas, electric, or oil? It’s hard to know which type of energy fuel is better for home heating. Before choosing the fuel type for a new heating system, weigh the advantages and disadvantages.
Even with seasonal increases, high-efficiency gas furnaces cost less to operate than electric furnaces. Electric heating is sometimes described as “thin” and “dry” and can be the least efficient. Natural gas is always available, while the oil market is unstable. You also do not have the hassle of refilling and maintaining storage tanks with natural gas, like you do with oil. Natural gas requires no large storage tanks in your basement. It is fed through a line directly into the house.
What should I look for when buying a furnace?
A furnace is not the most exciting purchase you will ever make, but it is key to your comfort and your family’s comfort. Instead of just calling your neighborhood fuel dealer to ask for help with a replacement, do some research and shopping on your own. The extra time you put into buying a new furnace may save you thousands over the service life of your furnace.
Here’s what to look for when buying a new furnace:
- Compare the performance of different brands and models. Read the product literature, something most American consumers don’t bother to do. Sometimes literature can be found on the companies’ websites.
- Ask questions when you talk to dealers. How energy-efficient is the new furnace? How much does the appliance cost to operate? A more efficient appliance costs less to run.
- Check guides like Consumer Reports to find out how models and brands compare for energy savings and repair histories. Read Energy Guide labels and the manufacturers’ fact sheets.
- Ask yourself how the purchase will fit into your budget. Sometimes it makes sense to pay more upfront for a high-efficiency furnace when you figure the energy savings over the service life of the product.
