2 Things Your Furnace Needs to Run Well

Monday, November 26th, 2012

The furnace in your home in Wellington, FL is an important part of your home. In general, furnaces are one of the most popular heating systems in the United States. But surprisingly, some people may not know how to take care of their electric furnaces. We thought it would be helpful for our customers in Wellington, FL if we assembled some things that can potentially help your furnace to run well during the winter season.

Ductwork

Once your furnace heats the air it sends it through the ducts in your home. If the ducts in your home are old there might be holes and cracks in them. If this is the case, you might be wasting heat energy when the air leaks out through those holes. You might also have unnecessary bends or pinches in your duct work it might reduce the efficiency of your furnace. Using the services of a professional heating company is a great way to make sure that the ductwork in your house is as efficient as possible.

Regular Maintenance

You probably get the oil changed on your car fairly regularly. The reason for that is to reduce costly repairs on your vehicle. The same principle applies to your furnace. Regular maintenance is a great way to potentially reduce repairs and also increase efficiency. When you have a heating technician regularly inspecting your electric furnace, they can catch small issues before they turn into large, expensive repairs.

If your electric furnace in your Wellington, FL home needs some maintenance or repairs before the winter heating season, call the professional heating technicians at Astro Air Inc. We would love to talk with you about setting up a regular maintenance plan and how we can make sure you stay comfortable in your home.

Having a good heating system in Florida is necessary to stay comfortable during those cold nights in the winter. But what are some of the best systems to get installed in your home in Boynton Beach? Astro Air Inc. has put together some of the most common heating installation questions that we get.

What is The Best Heating System for Florida?

Nearly every home in Florida has an air conditioning system. Because of that, some of the most popular heating systems that we install can be installed as part of that system without having to do any kind of retrofitting. But the main idea is that you want to know that you have a good and efficient heating system that will work when you need. Here are some of the most common systems that we install here.

  • Furnace – Furnaces are one of the most popular heating options in the county. The most popular type of furnace in Florida is electric furnaces.
  • Heat Pump – Another popular option is a heat pump. Heat pumps are unique forced air systems in that they can both cool and heat your home. They tend to be popular for two reasons. Frist, because they are highly efficient. Second, you only need one system to both cool and heat your home.
  •  Electric Heating Strips – These strips are a popular choice because they require very little maintenance. They run off of the electricity that is already coming into your air conditioning system. They can be added right into your existing forced air system so the installation process is pretty simple.

What is the Most Energy Efficient Heating System for My Home?

This will obviously very drastically depending on exactly where your home is and how you use the heating equipment. But if you have an older heating system in your home, it is generally accepted that a newer heating system will be more efficient.
