Temperatures Dropping = Thermostats Rising
As the days get cooler (and the nights get downright cold) thermostats are being raised all over the area. Surely, being able to quickly and easily create a comfortable temperature in our homes ranks high on the list of best innovations in human history.
Albuquerque Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling wants to help you keep the process of maintaining a cozy home simple. Not only are we familiar with the basic heating systems, but the newer technologies as well.
The two most common ways to heat a home are:
- A furnace/boiler, which heats air and blows it through a vent system
- Radiant System, piping that usually runs under the floor and emits warmth from the heated water running through the pipes
While the modern version of these heating systems are superior to their original structures, both concepts have been around since at least the time of Roman rule.
A newer type of home temperature control is called a Heat Pump. These units utilize the heat transfer principle to heat and cool your home with minimal energy expenditure. Heat Pumps are one of the most efficient options on the market right now.
Whichever system you have it’s important to make sure it is properly maintained and in good working order. If your heater is older, it could be running at a fraction of its potential capacity, using more energy and costing you more money.
We would love to do a systems check for you, and make recommendations on how to decrease the amount you spend each month to keep your home comfortable. It does not always mean a new unit, however an investment in a new technology could save you thousands in the years to come.
