What Types of Heating Systems are there?

There are several types of heating systems, each with their own benefits. At HVAC in LA, here are some of the systems we install and service:

A furnace is a heating system that uses gas, oil, or electricity to provide homes with heated air. Furnaces have a blower that gathers air, which is then heated through the use of natural gas, oil, or electrical heating elements and distributed throughout the home.
Types of Furnaces
  • Gas Furnace: A gas furnace heats air using natural gas. While gas furnaces have a lower fuel cost and longer lifespan, they can be more expensive to install and noisier to run.
  • Oil Furnace: Oil furnaces use heating oil to warm up air through a heat exchanger. They have lower installation costs but require a steady supply of heating oil, which can fluctuate in price, and need more frequent cleaning.
  • Electric Furnace: An electric furnace uses electrical heating elements to produce heated air through a heat exchanger. Electric furnaces cost less to install and require less maintenance, but they can be more expensive to run and tend to heat homes less efficiently.
Benefits of a Furnace System
A furnace system costs less in terms of fuel and uses less energy than other heating systems in colder temperatures.
Heat Pump
Heat pumps extract heat from outdoor air and move it inside a residential building.
Types of Heat Pumps
  • Air Source Heat Pump: This heat pump pulls hot air from outside into homes.
  • Ductless: Ductless, mini-split heat pumps are suitable for homes without ductwork or for heating certain zones or areas within a home.
  • Geothermal: This heat pump pulls heat from the ground into homes.
  • Absorption: These heat pumps use natural gas or other non-electrical sources.
Benefits of a Heat Pump
Heat pumps provide an energy-efficient way to heat homes, resulting in lower energy bills. Some can also act as air conditioners and keep homes cool in summer.
Package Units
  • Package units include all necessary components and parts that are typically housed in a single casing. These heating units offer a convenient way to keep smaller homes and other small spaces heated.

Benefits of a New Heating System

HVAC in LA installs and replaces gas, oil, and electric furnaces, as well as air source, ductless, geothermal, and absorption heat pumps. Our technicians can install and service packaged heating units as well. Every unit is installed correctly to ensure it will operate reliably and efficiently without any safety issues. If you have an older system, we can visit your home for a free evaluation and replace an old heater with a properly sized and configured unit. Our newer units meet the latest efficiency standards. We install high-efficiency, multi-speed gas furnaces and quiet, efficient heat pumps that provide comfort all year long.

Make sure to always maintain your heating system

Today’s HVAC systems have many maintenance points. Finding problems with fan blades, flame sensors, igniters, capacitors, gaskets, and pressure switches allows HVAC in LA to address them early and avoid more costly breakdowns. We can even inspect air ducts to check for obstructions, leaks, and other issues that can affect comfort and air quality. Schedule a regular tune-up to test your HVAC system and check for leaks, fuel pressure issues, or signs of wear and tear. Tuning up the system allows it to run reliably at peak efficiency. Also, by lubricating motors and other moving parts, we can avoid excess wear and premature damage caused by repeated friction.

What's in your Heating System

There are two major choices when it comes to your heating infrastructure – the heat pump or the furnace. Here are some of the advantages for each option. ​

  • Air Ducts – These ducts direct heated or cooled air to vents throughout your home.

  • Flame Sensors – These are safety features on gas furnaces that indicate whether or not a flame is present to ignite the gas.

  • Fan Blades – These blades are part of the fan inside your heating system. The fan circulates air throughout your home.

  • Capacitors – The start and run capacitors in your heating system’s fan motor supply it with electricity.

  • Ignitor – The ignitor is a pilot light or electric component that heats up the gas in your furnace in order to produce heated air.

  • Gaskets – High temp gaskets seal the draft inducer blower and heat exchanger in heating systems.

  • Pressure Switches – These switches close up so that electricity can get through in order to ignite the furnace.

  • Thermostats – Thermostats, although they may seem like separate components, are an integral part of your AC system. Newer versions include digital thermostats you can program to set a schedule for heating and cooling. Reliable Google Nest thermostats are installed by our technicians. A Wi-Fi thermostat can be controlled from your computer, tablet, or smartphone.
