Heating Service and Repair You rely on your heating system to keep you and your family warm and comfortable in the winter. In the Charleston area, heating systems are generally either furnaces or heat pumps. Furnaces create heat by combustion using oil, natural gas, or propane, and distribute the heated air through the house using ducts. Heat pumps, which tend to be more common in our mild environment, move heat rather than converting it from a fuel like combustion heating systems do. Heat pumps are very efficient to run and eliminate the cost of heating fuel. However they are less effective at maintaining desired heating levels during periods of extended sub-freezing temperatures. As an alternative to the heat pump or furnace system, there is the hybrid system (or “dual fuel”), which combines the best of both. This Heating system combines an electric heat pump with a gas furnace for ultimate efficiency. With the flexibility of two fuels, the system can optimize your energy use by switching back and forth to whichever source is most efficient to maintain comfort. From electric and gas furnaces to heat pump and hybrid systems, we repair and replace all heating systems. We can make recommendations on the best choice for your home or business.
