Heating Schererville

Heating is one of the three components of a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Your home’s HVAC system is as crucial to its day-to-day operation as well as your health in addition to other systems such as electrical and plumbing systems.

A heating system can be a money pit if it is not running efficiently. Usually, inefficient heating systems are older systems, but a new system can also become inefficient if it is not routinely serviced. Take the time to learn about the ideal maintenance schedule for the type of heating system in your home. If you are considering upgrading or replacing your existing heating system, discuss your needs with an experienced HVAC professional.

Keeping your Heating System Working Efficiently

Homeowners are advised to have their heating systems serviced twice each year. The type of service that your system needs depends on the type of system you have. For example, a system that uses oil-generated heat will need to have the oil filter changed and the oil nozzle replaced as they become inefficient due to impurities buildup. When a system uses hot air to warm a home, the ductwork through which the hot air travels must be inspected and cleaned regularly to keep it working efficiently.

Types of Heating Systems

Many different types of heating system can be found in American homes. 49 percent of American homes are heated with natural gas. The second largest energy source for heating American homes is electricity, which heats 34 percent of houses. Other energy sources include wood, propane, and fuel oil. 3 percent of American homes have no heating system or do not use heating equipment.

The types of heating system found in American homes are:

  • Forced hot air. With this system, air heated by a furnace moves through the ducts and enters rooms through metal grates;
  • Steam radiators. Water heated by a boiler moves to cast iron radiators and emits radiating heat through steam;
  • Hydronic heating. Often known as baseboard heating, this type of heating system creates radiant heat by moving hot water through floor-level metal units;
  • Radiant heat. To create a radiant, even heat through a home, tubes are installed under the floor and hot water is transported through them, warming the living spaces above; and
  • Geothermal heat. With this modern type of heating system, the earth’s heat is transported into a home via a geothermal loop pipe. This type of system is far more efficient than others, but it also costs more.
