What You Need to Know About Your Electric Furnace Installation

Monday, December 10th, 2012

Is it time to install a new furnace in your home? While there are many different types of electric furnaces on the market, the Boynton Beach furnace experts at Astro Air Inc. can walk you through the selection process. Once you choose a model that matches the needs of your home and your budget, we will install it for you with expert care.

Here are some things that will prepare you for the installation process.

Most electric furnaces are connected to a system of air ducts and vents to distribute the warm air to the living spaces of your home. The duct system will contain both return and supply vents. The return vents suck in cooler air to be redistributed as warm air once it is heated by the furnace. If you don’t already have ductwork in your home, then the installation process will include duct installation.

You might also want to install a new thermostat, since not all thermostats work with all heating systems. You need to make sure that you have a thermostat that will allow your furnace to run as efficiently as possible.

Electric furnace installation is a big job, especially in homes without existing ductwork, or in situations in which the ductwork needs to be replaced.  To ensure that you get comprehensive Boynton Beach electric  furnace installation services, call Astro Air Inc. today to set up a consultation!

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.
