Savannah winters are pretty mild, but temperatures can still drop into the 30s. You want a heating installation that keeps you warm and keeps utility bills low. Here are some options to consider:
Packaged systems come in large and small sizes with everything you need to heat and cool your home. All components are housed in an outdoor unit that’s installed on your roof or mounted on a slab outside. These units are ideal for smaller homes without a basement or crawl space.
Heat pumps extract warmth from outdoor air and use it to heat your home. Air source heat pumps are exceptionally efficient systems that work with existing ductwork. Ductless heat pumps operate without ducts. That eliminates the loss of treated air through ductwork leaks. Ductless systems are zoned systems. You can customize indoor temperatures without heating rooms you don’t use.
If you live in a cold northern city, a central forced-air furnace will meet and exceed your home’s heating demands. Furnaces are an affordable heating option as long as your ductwork is clean, sealed, and in good condition.
Dual Fuel System
Hybrid heat combines a furnace with an electric heat pump to maximize energy efficiency. A furnace is the more efficient heating option when temperatures fall below freezing. A heat pump provides warmth at a lower cost than the furnace when temps rise above freezing. When temperatures drop to a certain level, the furnace kicks in automatically. That prevents your heat pump from generating expensive backup heat.
