New York Heating Systems
In New York, heating systems are a vital piece of your home, its energy efficiency, and its basic comfort and livability. For some, a failed heating system in New York can be a life-threatening situation. For others, it can range from a mild hassle to a major financial hardship. Whatever your circumstances, the key is always to remain diligent and have your system tested or inspected during the off-season. Catching problems early is vital to minimizing the cost of repairs and protecting the long-term well-being of your system, but simply contacting a New York heating system contractor in the off-season will also save you some money. At the very least, some time in the fall, throw your heating system on for an hour to make sure it's still running smoothly.
Green Heating Systems
Although "green" heating systems are cheapest to install during a home's initial construction, they are often most important in older homes that lack modern energy-efficiency standards.
Geothermal Heat Pumps: Geothermal heat pumps work by exchanging above ground air particles with the consistently moderate temperatures beneath the Earth's surface. Though it's not cheap to dig to the desired level and install the unit, the great advantage of a geothermal heat pump is that it will take care of both your winter heating and your summer cooling needs.
Solar Heating Panels: As is widely known, the high cost of solar heating panel installation is offset with negligible operating costs. The long-term cost effectiveness is often determined by making wise decisions during the installation process and taking advantage of auxiliary benefits such as tax credits. In addition to general home heating, solar heating panels can also be used to heat your water and even your swimming pool.
Hydronic Heating: Hydronic heating deals more with the delivery of heat to your home rather than generating it. By using the low specific heat of water, as compared to air, you can heat your home with almost no loss of energy in transporting the heat throughout your home. Typically, water coils are installed underneath your home's flooring, although walls can also be used if sub-flooring space is an issue. Along with its energy-efficiency, hydronic heating produces a substantially more comfortable heat than forced-air heating systems.Cost of Installation
