New Heating System | New Furnace
Home Heating Systems: Designed and Installed to Order.
Whether you’re adding an addition to your home or have a new home under construction, Air Professional Associates is your experienced “design-build” professional resource.
We can serve as your general heating contractor or work with your existing general contractor as part of your construction team.
More importantly, we offer you multiple new heating system options to give you the best of everything: reliability, longevity, room-to-room comfort, and top level energy savings.
We also will discuss with you the relative advantages of the several options we provide:
- Gas furnace
- Oil furnace
- Ductless air systems
- Ground source (geothermal) heat pumps
- Air source heat-pumps
- Hydro-air systems
If you opt for a gas or oil furnace, we also can design and install a companion central air conditioning system.
Helping You Choose the Right System for Your Home and Budget
Here’s more information on the types of heating (plus combined heating and cooling systems) we can design and install on your behalf:
- Gas furnace. A gas furnace converts gas to heat and employs burners, a blower, heat exchanger and controls in the process. Some of our furnaces operate at up to 95% efficiency. Also called forced air heating systems, gas furnaces react when the room temperature dips below the setting on your thermostat. An igniter lights a burner inside the combustion chamber and pushes heat into the heat exchanger which, in turn, heats the air. Combustion gas byproducts are vented through a wall or rooftop flue.
- Oil furnace. This type of heating system uses pressurized oil mist to ignite a flame inside a combustion chamber for the purpose of providing heat. An oil furnace can last up to 20 years and remain popular in the Northeast since natural gas is not as abundantly available as in other parts of the country. A new oil furnace with an AFUE rating of 80% is considered energy efficient, while gas furnaces can achieve AFUE ratings up to 95%.
- Ductless air system. Ductless air systems are an excellent choice when adding conditioned air (heat and AC) to an existing room or new addition to your home. As the name implies, no ductwork is required. Instead, an outside condensing unit connects directly to one or more wall blowers that serve as heat (or cool) and distribute the air at the same time.
- Ground source (geothermal) heat pump. Ground source heat pumps rely on the sun’s energy to heat and cool your home, and generally are considered the most energy efficient home comfort system of all. They employ an underground system of pipes (called a loop) through which water circulates between your home and the heat pump to deliver heating and cooling efficiencies up to 600%.
- Air source heat pump. Air source heat pumps are electrically operated and use the difference in temperature between inside and outside your home to heat and cool it. This process takes the place of burning fossil fuels which leads to significant reductions in energy consumption and lower energy costs.
- Hydro-air system. This is another combination heating and cooling system. It includes a hot water boiler to provide heat by sending hot water from the boiler to an air handler which then distributes warm air into your home. The same air handler includes cooling coils to provide cool air during the warm-weather months.
