If you are like most people, you are probably a bit confused about all the b that are on the market today. If you need a new system either to replace an old system or for a new home you are having built, you will not only need to decide between the various heating products, but also choose a model. This is one of the services that we excel at. At Acosta Heating & Cooling, we enjoy advising our customers in Charlotte, NC about the best options, and we’ll be happy to help you out.

One of the decisions to be made is what furnace fuel type to go with. The choices are oil, gas and electric, but our climate here makes the use of electric furnaces far too costly in terms of utility expenditures.

Heat pumps are one of the newest technological advances in heating products. The great thing about them is that they can usually be easily installed with an existing system, taking advantage of the existing duct work. Another option that is fairly new is mini-split systems. These systems are ideal if you want to save energy by heating and cooling only certain sections of your home at a time.

One more thing you could consider is an addition to your system that reduces energy costs by using the sun’s energy to run your heat pump or air conditioner. The Lennox SunSource® System is one such product that can also be used to power other things in your home.

If you have any additional questions about heating products or solar power, we welcome your call. We will be glad to inspect your current system and offer our advice about the best option for your family.
