Just Buy a New Home? – Forced Hot Air Furnaces & Water Boiler Systems
Burlington HVAC of Burlington, WI, provides expert repair and installation of top-line forced hot air furnaces and water boiler systems for homeowners in Waterford WI, Lake Geneva WI, Twin Lakes WI, Antioch IL, and throughout southeast Wisconsin and northeast Illinois. If you’re just buying a home in these or surrounding areas, there are some things you might want to know.
Most popular ways to heat a home
If your new home has a heating system, it’s likely either a forced hot air furnace or a water boiler. Both systems do an excellent job in heating homes during the frigid winters we have here in southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. However, both types of systems operate quite differently.
Forced hot air furnaces
These appliances are fueled by either gas or oil and use hot air to maintain consistent heat within your home. We recommend Carrier brand forced hot air furnaces simply because they’re among the very best on the market.
Two of Carrier’s most popular furnace lines are Performance Series and the Comfort Series. Both are ultra-efficient with AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) ratings of between 80% and 96.7%. This rating percentage tells you how much of the energy produced by the appliance will be available as soothing heat for your home.
Water boiler systems
As with furnaces, water boiler systems employ either gas or oil as their fuel, but the difference is, these units heat water that is transferred to radiators or baseboard heating mechanisms. Water Boiler heating is ideal for those who prefer radiant heat rather than blowing hot air.
Models in Carrier’s Performance Series Gas Boiler, Performance Series Oil Boiler and Comfort Series Gas Boiler lines all will fulfill your need for outstanding performance and efficient heat with AFUE ratings between 80.4% and 95%.
Furnace and Boiler Installation and Repair
At one point your new home’s heating system may need repairs, or you may wish to upgrade by installing a brand-new system with higher efficiency to help reduce utility bills. Burlington HVAC has more than 40 years’ experience in the home-heating industry and employs HVAC repair and installation technicians who are certified by North American Technician Excellence (NATE). We are polite, prompt and most of all thoroughly trained on all styles and models of heating systems.
Boilers and furnaces are serious investments that begin paying off immediately – providing they are installed and set up correctly. When our home-heating professionals perform installation or repair work, you’re assured of service that is second-to-none followed by many years of outstanding system performance.
If you’ve never owned a home with a forced hot air furnace or a water boiler system, we suggest you schedule an inspection with our technicians, who can make sure your system is in perfect working order and explain everything you need to know about it.
