Choosing Your Next Heater

We all know how chilly Long Beach can get. Just think about those days with high wind or heavy rainstorms that can catch even the most well-prepared Californians by surprise. We don’t see temperatures in the negatives, but it can certainly get more than cold enough to need the help of a good heater to get through the day.

This can be a tough ask if you don’t have a heater to rely on. It pays to invest in a quality heating installation in Long Beach, CA. You can start by learning what your options are. Here’s what you need to know about your heating system options before you schedule an installation.

3 Types of Heaters To Know About

Choosing a new heater can feel trickier when you aren’t sure what your options are. Here are some of the best heating system options that you can choose to heat your space.

  • Furnaces: There are two types of furnaces to consider–gas or electric. These systems create heat by burning natural gas or through electrical resistance. This allows them to heat the air that is then distributed throughout your home through your ductwork system. Furnaces are extremely powerful heaters and are a great fit for homes with ductwork. The biggest consideration for these systems is which type of fuel source you want to use.
  • Heat pumps: A heat pump system is going to be an ideal option for anyone looking to heat their home this winter but also trying to plan ahead to cool their home in the summer. This is because a heat pump works by moving heat into or out of the house. That means this one system does the job of two, saving you space and money while still providing great comfort.
  • Ductless heat pumps: Don’t have ductwork? Then there is still an option for you to consider other than a space heater. Ductless systems can be added to spaces that aren’t equipped with ductwork. These are highly efficient systems that can heat your indoor environment effectively while providing easy zone control and high energy efficiency. What’s more, since ductless doesn’t use ductwork, you don’t have to worry about ductwork services.
