Choosing the Right Heating System in Des Moines and Surrounding Areas
There are many options for your new heating system. If you select a furnace, you must decide between gas, oil, or electric. Often, gas is the most energy-efficient and cost–effective solution for Des Moines area homeowners, but if you are having an existing system replaced, it is best to match the new system to the old components.
Additionally, take into consideration the energy efficiency of your new furnace. Furnaces are measured by AFUE – the amount of fuel consumed that is converted into heat. So, the higher the AFUE rating, the less you pay for energy. Gas furnaces have AFUE ratings of up to 98% but the higher-rated models do cost more.
Another option for heating replacement in Des Moines, Johnston, Cedar Rapids, and Iowa City or the surrounding areas, is a heat pump. Heat pumps are installed in the same manner as a central air conditioner and extract heat from the outside air to both cool and warm your home. Again, it is important to have a heat pump properly sized for your home and to select one with an energy efficiency rating that matches your budget.
The Heating Replacement Process
The first step is to inspect your current system or components and determine what type of heating system will work best for you. We will perform a heat load calculation to determine how powerful of a system your home needs and then inspect the ductwork, air handler, and chimney flue to determine if any upgrades will be needed to your home to support a new system.
Once your home is ready for the replacement of a new heating system, we remove any existing components and start the replacement process for the new system. Depending on whether renovations or customizations are needed, the process takes between 1–2 days to complete.
