Both furnaces and heat pumps are solutions to a constant problem—how to combat the chilly winter temperatures we’re dealing with every year. While it might not be as chilly for us as it is for our northern neighbors, that doesn’t mean cold temperatures aren’t uncomfortable at best and dangerous at worst. That’s why having a reliable heater is just as important for us as it is for anyone else!
Though, with many different types of heaters on the market today, how can you tell which heater will benefit your home the most? With so little time in the winter to test them out for effectiveness, it can be difficult choosing the right system, to say the least.
We’re going to discuss two different types of heaters—the furnace and the heat pump. Both function much differently than the other, but they provide essentially the same service at similar rates of efficiency. If your curiosity peaks during this post, make sure to call us for anything involving HVAC in Richmond Hill, GA.

Nobody gets a dual fuel hybrid heating system because it looks cool. If it was economically or situationally effective, we would just hook every one of our customers up with a heat pump and call it a day.
However, heat pumps are not always as effective and affordable as they may seem throughout the year. When temperatures begin to drop below what a heat pump can handle, you’ll start to feel the difference and it won’t make you very happy. While we love heat pump HVAC in Savannah, GA we don’t want homeowners purchasing a system that won’t make keep them content. That’s why we offer dual fuel hybrid systems.
These systems contain the efficiency and year-round versatility of a heat pump, with the power and effective heating potential of a furnace, mixing it all into one system.
Nope, we’re not making this up. Keep reading to see if a dual fuel system is right for you!

Homeowners are keenly aware of the problems with excessive humidity, because dehumidifiers are quite popular appliances these days.

As we often like to tell our community, having no air conditioning in Bluffton, SC can be a major issue.

Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to replace your malfunctioning air conditioner and suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous comfort.
Ahem, pardon our Shakespearean, but this question does deserve a soliloquy of its own. Where must the line be drawn, between an air conditioner that’s just having a bad time and an AC that needs an entire replacement?
Fortunately for you (and unfortunately for Hamlet), there’s a pretty well-established answer to this question. AC technicians who perform air conditioning service in Savannah, GA use a set of criteria to know when an AC unit is on its last legs, or when it just needs a couple of fixes to be at its best. Sometimes these criteria can be unknown to homeowners, and it comes as a surprise to them when it’s recommended that their old, faithful air conditioner should be replaced.
So, let’s help you get
acquainted with that criteria.
