Charlotte winters can be bitterly cold, and at AC Round Rock, our technicians can ensure that you have peace of mind when the cold weather comes by performing regular maintenance and installation of a heating system that is right for you home. You have many choices in heating systems and our technicians can recommend the right one for the size of your home and your heating needs. In order to make the right choice, it is good to know what types of heating systems are available.

Gas Furnaces

Gas is a very common fuel used to heat homes. If you live in an area that offers natural gas, you will have a meter and a regulator on the outside of your home. This is connected to your furnace and is used as fuel to produce heat. Gas heat is dry heat and very economical. It heats quickly and burns clean. Gas is one of the most popular ways to heat residential buildings. Residential gas furnaces have a blower in them that circulates the warm air through your home via ducts. Return vents, or registers, bring the air back from your rooms to the furnace to be heated. Propane can also be used if you live in a rural area, and you do not have access to natural gas. Propane heaters work in the same way as natural gas, but the fuel is stored in a tank on the outside of your home.

If you have a gas furnace, it is recommended that you also have carbon monoxide detectors. These detect the colorless and odorless gas that can be the result of a faulty gas system. Carbon monoxide can cause serious health complications and even death. Regular maintenance and seasonal inspections will ensure your family’s safety and our  HVAC technicians can perform this service to keep your family safe and your gas furnace operating at its best.

Electric Furnaces

Electric furnaces are also very efficient and give you a constant, even heat. Unlike a gas furnace, there is no flame, but it instead uses either a heat pump which adds heat to your home’s air or a forced air system which uses a heating element and a blower. Heat pumps are much smaller than furnaces and work like an air conditioner in reverse. They are ideal for small homes, condos, and apartments since the area to be heated is not very large. Larger homes benefit from electric furnaces since they produce more heat than a heat pump. An inspection by our HVAC technicians can help you to choose which type of electric heating system you should consider.

Regular Maintenance and Inspections

In order for your heating system to be ready when you need it, it is recommended that you have it inspected before and after the cold weather season. The filter needs to be changed, the system needs to be checked for any leaks or carbon monoxide if it is gas, the combustion chamber needs to be cleaned and the ducts need to be cleared of any debris. Our HVAC technicians can perform regular maintenance, inspect your heating system and make any necessary repairs.

It’s very important to have your furnace regularly maintained. The main reason why homeowners run into problems with their heating systems is because of dirt collecting. Air moves in and out of a furnace and when it flows though, it sometimes leaves dirt and debris inside of the furnace lines. If you have your furnace regularly maintained, less dirt will collect and you will run into less problems with the functioning of your heating system. Regular servicing of your heat pump and furnace will also cut down on repair issues because we will be able to catch any flaws ahead of time before they become a problem.
