Anyone who thinks a subtropical or desert climate can’t get cold at night has never spent a winter in the country’s southern region. Summertime temperatures may rise to triple digits, but once the endless days give way to longer nights, residents who previously lived by air conditioning alone may choose instead to fire up the furnace.
There’s a good reason for this. In many of these areas, the winter mercury will frequently drop to 40 degrees or less, making life less than comfortable for the region’s residents.
The truth is that without a reliable heating system, no one who lives in this country all year round is going to be very happy. Everyone needs to stay warm in the winter, and installing and maintaining a heating system is the only way to do it. If you don’t have a system now, you’re surely going to need one, and if you do already have one in place, maintenance is vital. Regardless of your current heating needs, Frymire can help.
Repairing Your Current Heating System
Some contractors may tell you that your current heating system has long since passed its useful life, especially when it is more than 10 years old. However, you may feel strongly that your still has a few good years left in it, especially if it is still doing its job most of the time. In this sort of case, Frymire will work to keep yours running for as long as we possibly can. Whether you own a heat pump, boiler, oil-fired system or gas furnace, our expert technicians will repair it quickly and resourcefully to make your winter residence livable again.
In general, you are safe in choosing to make those repairs if your system has not yet reached the ripe old age of 15 and the cost of fixing it will amount to one-third or less of what replacing it entirely would set you back. If you’re unsure about whether to repair your heating system it or swap it out for good, the Frymire technicians can point you in the right direction.
Choosing the Best Type of Heating System
If you are in the market for a new heating system, you have several types from which to choose. Your situation will often dictate the best selection based on the available types of fuel. In many areas of the country, natural gas enjoys great popularity. Fuel oil is less commonly used nationwide, and electric heat pumps serve the purpose well in areas where the winters are far less severe.
The distribution system is another important consideration. Forced-air holds sway over much of the country, and while its ductwork can support central air conditioning, the breeze that it blows from the registers can lead to temperature swings. A somewhat less-popular option, the hydronic system, makes use of a boiler to heat hot water and circulate it to radiators, baseboard fixtures or flooring pipes. While these systems cost somewhat more to install and cannot support central air conditioning, they do provide a somewhat more even heat.
Thanks to its complexity, the installation of any new heating system demands a high degree of skill and know-how. The pros at Frymire can assist you in choosing the best type of heating system and install it for you properly from start to finish.
