How Do I Choose the Right Heating System?
If you’re tired of calling heating repair services every time your old furnace breaks down, consider upgrading to a new unit by scheduling a heating system installation instead. For us, the first step of heating system installation is listening to you, and your choice of heating system is a personal one. So how do you choose the right heating system?
The best heating system for your home is one that fulfills all of your needs and is based on several factors. When you’re choosing a heating system, consider the following:
Furnaces are a popular form of home heating system. If you have trouble with your furnace, our technicians will visit your home to quickly and accurately diagnose the problem. We are troubleshooting experts and have years of experience providing heating repair and replacement for all types of furnace makes and models.
Furnaces are designed to last many years, but they only perform as well as they are treated. Make sure to schedule regular furnace tune-ups and other annual HVAC maintenance, or else you could be costing yourself big time down the road!
We offer a full range of heating system installation for more than just furnaces. One of the more common furnace alternatives is a boiler. Some homeowners seek furnace alternatives so they can be more eco-friendly, while others do not want a bulky furnace in their homes. Regardless of why you’re seeking furnace alternatives, we are here to provide all kinds of heating system installation. Our steam boiler installation team specializes in determining the best boiler models and facilitating installation following top standards.
There are various things to think about when looking to install a new boiler. If you are replacing an existing one, you may want to keep your location the same or choose a different spot. You also might want to upgrade to a model that is more energy-efficient.
Regardless of which option you end up choosing, taking the time to survey your needs and determine the ideal installation location is essential. If you have already decided on a boiler capacity and preferred type, we will carry out the installation while also providing our professional insights so that you end up with the best results.
How Does a Boiler System Work?
If you’re scheduling HVAC/heating system repair for your boiler or are considering a boiler as a furnace alternative, you might be curious about how boilers work.
Contrary to what you might think, modern boilers don’t actually “boil” water. The term came from the past, where steam boilers were used to heat homes. Today, boilers are essentially water heaters that run on natural gas or electricity. Boilers provide “radiant” heat, which essentially means heat radiates from the boiler into your home. Furnaces warm the actual air in the room, where boilers are a centralized spot that heats up and warms up what’s around it.
In order to heat up the water needed to get your home warm, your boiler needs a fuel source. This fuel may be natural gas, or it might be electricity. In the case of gas boilers, fuel is burned by the boiler’s burner, which controls the amount of air that mixes with the fuel in order to make combustion as efficient as possible. The hot gas produced from this combustion process is sent through a heat exchanger, which transfers the heat from the gas to the water in the tank. After it heats the water, the gas is directed out of your house via a chimney or vent.
Electric boilers are quite similar, except the “fuel” they receive is in the form of running water passing through an element that is heated by electricity. The rest of the process is more or less the same.

How Does a Heat Pump Work?
Whether you’re seeking a new heat pump installation or need heating repair services for your heat pump, you’ve likely also wondered how this system works. A typical heat pump consists of two major components: an outdoor unit and an indoor unit. Both the indoor and outdoor units are necessary for the heat pump to function properly since heat pumps can provide both heating and cooling to your home.
Your heat pump’s outdoor unit is made up of a coil and a fan. The coil operates as either a condenser while in cooling mode or an evaporator while in heating mode. Meanwhile, the fan blows air from outside over the coil to facilitate heat exchange.
The indoor unit is also made up of a coil and a fan. They are slightly different, however. During cooling mode, the indoor unit’s coil acts as an evaporator. During heating mode, it acts as a condenser. The fan in this unit is what moves air across the unit’s coil, and blows said air throughout your home’s air ducts.
During hot summer days, your heat pump operates like a standard air conditioner. Air conditioners use refrigerant to absorb heat in your home and then transfer that heat to the air outside by changing the pressure of the refrigerant fluid. When the pressure lowers, refrigerant absorbs heat in the air and then evaporates from a liquid into a gas. When pressure is increased, this gas has higher energy than the air outside, so it passes the heat to the surrounding air. When it cools, the refrigerant condenses back to a liquid to restart the cooling system.
When the weather outside is frightful, your heat pump effectively uses the same cycle to run in reverse. Because outdoor air has higher energy than the low-pressure refrigerant, the refrigerant absorbs the heat, which is used to warm up the air in your home.
Geothermal Heating Installation
One furnace alternative that is gaining popularity as more people are seeking eco-friendly solutions for their homes is geothermal heat pump installation. Standard heat pumps are popular furnace alternatives in areas with relatively mild weather year-round, but if you live in Morris County or Union County, NJ, you know that our weather can be anything but mild! Heat pumps essentially use the outdoors as a heating and cooling element, so they are not necessarily ideal in places where temperatures change significantly with the seasons.
How Does A Geothermal Heat Pump Work?Geothermal heat pump installation is different because geothermal heat pumps (GHPs) use the relatively constant temperature of the earth as an exchange medium rather than the outside air temperature. The ground’s temperature stays warmer than the air above it in winter and cooler than the air above it in summer. GHPs take advantage of these more ideal temperatures using a ground heat exchanger to absorb heat from the earth. Standard heat pump installation is simpler and less expensive than geothermal heat pump installation, but, with this heat pump model, you reap the benefits of reduced energy bills while also staying comfortable and helping the planet.
