The technicians at Kappl Heating and Air Conditioning have experience installing every type of heating unit, but they will assess each individual situation and make specific recommendations based on your budget and home comfort needs. Regardless of which heater you decide to go with, you’ll definitely notice the monthly energy savings compared to what you were paying while running your inefficient, old heating unit.
Routine heating system maintenance is often ignored by most people, particularly if they’re running a relatively new system. The average homeowner incorrectly assumes that there’s no need to spend money on a system that appears to be working fine. One could argue that it’s these properly functioning systems that will benefit the most from regular maintenance.
Among the more common reasons for preventative heater maintenance is that it can save you money over time because a properly maintained system operates more efficiently, which means it takes less energy to keep your home heated. The potential need for expensive emergency repairs is also diminished because a technician keeps every part of the system functioning properly so that a minor concern doesn’t turn in to a costly repair down the road.
Kappl Heating and Air Conditioning recommends that all of our Sherman Oaks, CA customers keep up with regular maintenance on their heaters, but we always come prepared to handle any heating repair as well.
Sadly we always have heater repair needs at the worst possible times, because we don’t know there’s a problem until we go to turn our system on to escape the cold. With the system off, there’s no way of knowing there’s an issue. No one wants to be faced with a heating system issue, but when you do you should consult an honest and knowledgeable heating technician who can identify the problem and possibly stop a minor issue from snowballing into a major one. In certain situations, an expensive repair doesn’t always make sense, especially if there is the potential that problems will resurface. When faced with this situation, homeowners often find that it’s wiser to invest in a new, energy efficient home heating system.
Furnaces are the home heaters that most people are familiar with. And indeed, there are many good furnaces out there. Aside from the type of fuel they burn, the main difference between the various furnace models on the market has to do with how efficiently they translate fuel into heat.
For instance, a furnace with an 80% AFUE rating is probably more efficient than your older model, but it will wind up wasting much more fuel than one with an AFUE rating of 90% or higher. However, in some cases the furnace with the 80% rating is a better option because these models are generally cheaper to purchase and install. Depending on the climate where you live and how much you use your furnace, the added savings you would get from a 90+% AFUE furnace may or may not be worth the extra installation costs.
The other main option in terms of home heating systems that we offer at Kappl Heating and Air Conditioning, generally integrate with an air conditioning system to create a year-round climate control system for your home. Heat pumps are an excellent option, particularly in climates that require the use of both air conditioning and heat at different times of the year.
