Which kind of heater is best for your home? There’s not one right answer, and it depends on what you’re looking for specifically. Many people opt for furnaces, which are large appliances that usually run on natural gas. Other people add electric heaters, which are often installed along the baseboards in your home. Another option is buying a space heater, which is mobile and can be carried from room to room and will also add extra warmth. And of course, some people opt for heat pumps instead of furnaces, which Air Boca also installs. Heat pumps are energy-efficient and often cost less than furnaces.
Electric furnaces are often cheaper than gas furnaces, and if you’re in Florida, you likely won’t need a high-power furnace. Because our weather conditions rarely dip anywhere near freezing temperatures, we don’t rely on our heaters as much as our northern neighbors might. Most furnaces last for up to 20 years, so you’re making an investment when you choose a furnace to heat your home. Furnaces are often contained in HVAC systems, so if you have an HVAC system installed, you won’t have to worry about a separate heating unit unless you want the extra warmth we mentioned earlier.
How Do You Know If Your Heater Isn’t Working?
The most common way to tell is that your home will likely feel cold unexpectedly on a frigid day. Having your heater maintained and regularly cleaned is one way to prevent problems, but if your heater stops working and you aren’t sure why, give Air Boca a call. Air Boca has been installing air conditioning and heating units for over three decades, and we only carry products from trusted brands like:
