The ultimate in comfort. All winter long, you depend on your furnace, heat pump or hydronic boiler in the case of radiant heat to meet the heating needs of your home and your family. That’s why we use Trane gas furnaces, electric furnaces and oil furnaces as well as Lochinvar and Weil-McLane boilers, that perform again and again, year after year. Beyond performance, we also provide you with options for energy-efficient operation. In fact, some of the furnaces and boilers we have installed operate at over 90% efficiency, which means that 90% of the fuel you pay for is actually converted into heat for your home.
Gas Furnace Systems
Reliable, efficient heat when you need it, a Gas Furnace is the choice for the majority of modern homes with central heating and air conditioning. If you’re in the market for a new gas furnace, do you know the differences between a conventional, induced draft, and condensing furnace?
If you don’t, you should because your choice of furnace design will have an effect on its efficiency, and that, in turn, will have an effect on your annual heating costs.
See what the Heating experts at the Trane Home Comfort Institute explain on our gas furnace page.
Hydronic Heating Systems or Boilers
Hydronic Heating Systems or Boilers maintain comfort in your home with hot water circulating throughout the home. The system consists of a boiler, pump and baseboards connected by water piping. The hydronic boiler heats water to temperatures between 120º and 210º, and the water is then pumped through the pipes in the baseboards located around the outer perimeter of the home for a curtain of warmth, or in the floor in radiant systems.
In radiant systems the energy from the heated water circulating thru the pipes radiates to its immediate environment, warming the floors, furniture and anyone in the room. Cold tile floors become warm and inviting. Also heat is gently circulated uniformly and without sudden on-and-off cycles that create turbulence, this, plus the fact that a hydronic system operates at relatively low temperatures, allows you to keep a cleaner home and equipment that has a longer life span (25yrs or more).
Heat Pump Systems
Heat Pumps pull from the ground or outside air temperature to both heat and cool your home to perfection. A reliable, efficient choice in Southern states.
