Winter is right around the corner, and the last thing you’ll want to deal with is a broken heating system. If your heating system is due to be replaced, now is an ideal time to start the process. Choosing an energy-efficient heating system for your El Paso, TX, home will lower your monthly utility bills, improve your cash flow and add value to your property.
1. Geothermal Heat Pump
Geothermal heat pumps are the most efficient type of heat pump. They use the stability of the Earth’s temperature for transferring heat into and out of your house. These systems both heat and cool your home. They require some electricity to power the fan and its motor as well as the compressor.
2. Dual-Fuel Heat Pump
A dual-fuel air-source heat pump is actually a combination of a gas furnace and an electric heat pump. You could also combine a gas furnace and electric furnace as a dual-fuel heating system. On mild to moderate days, the heat pump transfers energy into your home. On frigid days, the gas furnace takes over as the source of heat. Because gas furnaces create more heat per unit of energy, you maximize efficiency all year long.
3. Ductless Mini-Split
Ducted heating systems lose up to 30% of the warm air to leaks within walls, crawlspaces and attics. Consider a ductless mini-split heating system, and avoid the waste of energy. Ductless mini-splits can be optimized for zoned climate control.
4. Heat Recovery Ventilator
If you choose a gas furnace, add a heat recovery ventilator to the system. This device captures the heat from flue gases. It uses that heat to warm incoming air, which lowers the amount of gas used to heat your house.
