Most homes in Utah come with a heating system, a simple wood-burning fireplace is a minimum requirement for most home buyers. It can be a deal-breaker at times which shows us just how important heating systems are.
Heating can keep us warm and cozy during the cold winter season in Utah. We can’t imagine spending 3 months of winter without heating in our homes or offices.
Here are some of the common home heating systems that you can install in our homes.
A furnace takes the air from your home into an air ductwork system then to a place where it is heated and delivered back into your rooms.
Modern furnaces use blowers to recirculate the heated air.
You can choose a furnace that is powered by gas, electricity, oil, wood or coal.
Furnaces are still the best choice for your home heating needs due to lifespan, efficiency and low noise.
They are flexible enough to fit any type of home or building.
Also known as the forced air system, the furnace is the core of your centralized air system used to provide warm air.
You can find furnaces in basements, closets, attics, and crawlspaces.
Electric Heat Pumps
Heat pumps work by moving heat from one place to another. They can also double as air conditioners during summer.
Heat pumps get warmth from outdoor air, surface water, or the ground. The air is warmed by the system if needed then circulated in the home.
They are controlled by thermostat systems and stay on longer.
These heaters are ideal if you live in a mild to moderate climate. Those who live in colder areas will need more heating power than these pumps can provide.
Radiant Baseboard Heat
Baseboard heaters are long individual metal units that can heat your home room by room. They operate without a central heating system and you don’t need any ductwork.
They can be less efficient than centralized systems but costs less to install.
These are portable heaters that are powered by electricity, gas or kerosene. They can be attached to an area for heating of that space.
Radiant Ceiling or Floor Heaters
Radiant systems act the same way as the sun does. No blowers or fans are needed.
Radiant elements are powered by electricity and are installed in your floors or ceilings.
Hydronic systems use hot water flowing through pipes under your floors. They use a boiler to warm the circulating water. These systems are usually installed in driveways to keep snow from building up.
