Types of Systems We Work On

In Alabama, homeowners have a lot of options when it comes to choosing a heating system for their homes. From greater heating power and energy-efficient performance to reduced costs and custom comfort control, these systems all have their own advantages. 

Some of the most popular types of heating systems in and around Tennessee Valley include: 

  • Gas Furnaces: Gas furnaces are one of the most popular heater choices for a reason—these systems offer reliable, efficient heating that’s less costly than other options, such as electric furnaces. Gas furnaces are also clean-burning, meaning they produce fewer greenhouse gases than electric furnaces. 
  • Electric Furnaces: Electric furnaces are often less expensive to install than their gas counterparts, but they may be more costly to run over time. However, electric furnaces tend to have a longer lifespan than gas furnaces, meaning you can enjoy reliable heating now and long into the future. 
  • Heat Pumps: Heat pumps are highly efficient, saving both energy and money as they are less costly to operate. Heat pumps also work quickly, meaning you’ll enjoy faster comfort throughout your home. In addition to providing heat, these systems also offer cooling power, making them a great, all-in-one choice.
  • Boilers: Boilers utilize heated water to warm different areas of the home. They are often more energy-efficient than furnaces, as less heat is lost during this process. Additionally, boilers have fewer moving parts than other heating systems, meaning they are often easier to maintain and tend to have fewer issues over time. 
  • Geothermal Heat Pumps: Geothermal heat pumps are becoming increasingly popular thanks to their high energy efficiency and reliability. These systems utilize the nearly constant temperature found below the earth’s surface to effectively heat and cool homes and commercial structures and can help you save between 35 to 80 percent on energy costs. 

Whether your home uses a water baseboard heating system or a traditional, forced-air central heater, you can trust Valley Heating & Cooling with all your Tennessee Valley heating service needs. Our technicians are highly trained and certified for your peace of mind. We have extensive experience working on all types of heating systems and are prepared to assist you today.

How Often to Schedule Heater Maintenance

While you may not give your heater much thought until something goes wrong, it’s important to think about scheduling routine heating system maintenance. Regular inspections and tune-ups have many benefits, from ensuring optimal performance to improving energy efficiency and even saving you money on your utility costs. With regular maintenance, you’re also less likely to deal with unexpected heater problems, meaning you’ll have to spend less time and money on repairs. 

So, when should you schedule heating system maintenance? At Valley Heating & Cooling, we recommend having your HVAC system serviced at least twice a year—once in the spring and once in the fall. While you should have your air conditioning system checked in the spring, it’s best to have your heater serviced in the fall before the cooler temperatures set in. This will allow you to identify and address any issues with your system before you need it most. 

How Long Does a Typical Heater Last? 

It’s a question we hear a lot, especially when installing a new system or repairing one that’s near the end of its lifespan—how long will my heater last? The answer, unfortunately, is not so simple. 

Many factors impact how long you can expect your heater to last, including but not limited to: 

  • The type of system you have 
  • How often you have it professionally maintained 
  • Whether your heater is properly sized for your space 
  • Whether it was properly installed 
  • Whether the ductwork was properly installed 
  • How often you use your heater (and air conditioner, in some cases)
  • Temperature extremes in your area 
  • How often you replace or clean the air filters

All that being said, a properly maintained heating system can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years. Some heating systems, such as electric furnaces, are specifically designed to last even longer, from about 20 to 30 years, depending on a variety of factors.
