New Heater Installation
Purchasing a new heating system can be confusing, especially when there are so many different models and available features. Many homeowners do a thorough job of researching equipment options, but it is important to make sure a heater is selected specifically for the unique conditions of your home or business. Ocean State Air Conditioning & Heating’s heating experts are here to help. And, since we use industry standard load calculations to size systems before installation, you can count on receiving just the right amount of power to keep your space warm and toasty no matter how cold it gets outside.
Selecting a Heating Appliance
In the majority of homes in our area, heat is provided by a heat pump or forced air furnace. Here’s a look at both:
Manufacturers produce furnaces that run on natural gas, fuel oil or propane. Most furnaces burn natural gas since it is safe, cost effective and widely available.
Comparing the efficiency of different furnace models can be easily accomplished by using the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) standard. An AFUE rating is a numerical representation of the economy of the appliance while in operation. For example, a 98 AFUE rated furnace exhausts only two percent of total amount of the fuel it uses as waste gas.
In the cooling mode, a heat pump functions according to the principles of the refrigeration cycle, just like an air conditioner. The difference is that heat pumps incorporate a reversing valve, so the refrigerant can flow in both directions. This means a heat pump can provide both heating and cooling from a single system. Heat pumps operate beautifully in climates like ours, providing reliable, affordable heating and cooling year-round.
