One of the oldest of all heating systems, furnaces remain competitive in the modern HVAC market because of their flexibility (they can use a variety of fuel sources) and increasing energy-efficiency. If you already have ducts in your home, furnaces make very attractive choices because they will install easily.

Heat pumps

Heat pumps work as both heaters and air conditioners, offering a best-of-both-worlds solution for your comfort needs. They can also offer savings on heating bills because they don’t generate heat through burning fuel, but instead use electricity to move heat from outdoors into your home.

Hybrid systems

If a heat pump doesn’t provide enough warmth for your home (they can struggle with extremely low temperatures), a hybrid heating system that combines a heat pump with a gas-powered furnace that takes over when necessary makes an ideal solution.
