The majority of households in the USA depend on their heat from a central furnace system. A furnace blows heated air through air ducts that deliver warm air to throughout the dwelling via air registers.  Also called a warm-air ducted or a warm-air forced distribution heating system, are usually fueled by natural gas, electricity, or propane. Older styles of furnaces vented directly to the outside air, wasting around 30% of the fuel consumption and energy by keeping the exhaust hot enough so it would safely raise the exhaust through the chimney. Minimum efficiency furnaces today reduce the energy waste significantly by utilizing an inducer fan to extract the harmful exhaust gases. Condensing furnaces, today’s version of a high-efficiency furnace, reclaim the escaping hot exhaust gases and cool them below 140°F.


Boiler systems, also called hydronic systems, distribute heat through the hot water as it passes through water pipes, baseboards, and radiators throughout the house. As the water cools it returns to the boiler to be reheated and then redistributed through the system again. Today’s boilers don’t look much different than the old steam radiators systems commonly used decades ago. Residential boilers are usually powered by natural gas, propane or electricity. With a boiler heating system, the cost savings is usually greater than that of a forced air furnace because it is much easier to control the temperature of individual rooms by the use of thermostats. A boiler can also supply hot water for the home.

Ductless Split Heating

The majority of homes and businesses use heating systems that direct heat through ductwork, which tend to lose a lot of energy. Conversely, mini-splits can greatly reduce the heat and energy loss common among ducted systems. There are 5 major advantages to ductless heating systems.  Individual rooms can be regulated individually on the amount of heat produced. The systems can be mounted to a wall, to the ceiling or even mounted in basements with drop ceilings. Easy installation and the improved energy efficiency tend to be the top advantages of zoned ductless heaters. Built in features like sleep functions and timers, give the homeowner more control over energy savings than forced air furnaces.

Hot Water Heaters

The workhorse of every home is the water heater.  From hot showers and baths to dishwashers and washing machines, we take it for granted that when we need hot or warm water it will be there. If your current water heater has begun to fail and it’s getting time to replace it, consider the advantages of today’s high-efficiency models, typically rated by Energy Star on energy consumption. There are 2 different types of water heaters on the market today, the conventional cylinder storage-tank water heater, electric, gas, propane, and the newer tankless water heaters also referred to as on-demand water heaters. Conventional water heaters usually store between 30-70 gallons of water and are heated by electricity, natural gas or propane at a set temperature. Tankless versions are more energy efficient because you are only paying for the energy used to heat the water at the time of use, rather than continuously 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
