Are you having a problem with heating, cooling or both? Heating Cooling Both Do you have a Furnace, Boiler, Heat Pump, or Package Unit? Furnace Boiler Heat Pump Packaged Unit A furnace works by blowing heated air through ducts that deliver the warm air to rooms throughout the house via air registers or grills. This type of heating system is called a ducted warm-air or forced warm-air distribution system. It can be powered by electricity, natural gas, or fuel oil.Boilers generate warm air through the heated water in a tank. They don't require ducts to circulate warm air throughout the house. Instead, heated water is circulated through pipes to different end points located inside the house that are typically baseboard heaters or radiators.A heat pump is part of a heating and cooling system and is installed outside your home. Like an air conditioner, it can cool your home, but it’s also capable of providing heat. In cooler months, a heat pump pulls heat from the cold outdoor air and transfers it indoors, and in warmer months, it pulls heat out of indoor air to cool your home.A package unit is the all-in-one heating and cooling system for homes that don't have a lot of room indoors for either a furnace and coil, or an air handler. Package units will contain all of their parts in one outdoor unit that sits on either the roof or to the side of a building. Does your Furnace run on Gas or Oil? Gas Oil Age of Equipment? 0-5 Years 6-10 Years 11-20 Years or more If your equipment is less than ten years old, check your warranty for existing coverage. New equipment must be registered with the manufacturer at the time of purchase. Is routine maintenance and cleaning done yearly? Yes No Proper maintenance is key to efficient operation. According to Energy.gov, the difference between the energy consumption of a well-maintained system and severely neglected systems range from 10% to 25%. Regular maintenance can extend the life of your home's comfort system. Is your system making new, different, or louder noises? Yes No If your equipment is making noises you haven't heard before, don't wait to have it checked. The problem may be something that can be easily repaired. Ignoring the issue can lead to long-term problems and more expensive repairs. Are you spending money on repairs several times a year? Yes No Are your energy bills continuing to go up? Yes No If your HVAC equipment is more than 10 years old, it may have become less efficient. As much as HALF of your energy cost goes to heating and cooling your home.
