Furnace Installation & Replacement
When your heating system starts to get old, it may be time to consider a heating replacement. As systems age, they tend to become inefficient, run up your energy bill, and require repairs more frequently. Contact Canella Heating & Air Conditioning to have our HVAC technicians run the required tests to determine the correct size heating system for your home. Having a unit that is too small can lead to it constantly running. Meaning, it will run up your energy bill and never completely warm your house. On the flip side of the coin, a unit that is too large is also less efficient. When should you consider a replacement unit in Hickory & Catawba Valley? When it’s more cost effective to have a new heating system installed instead of continuing to repair your current system. This normally becomes the case when your unit is approaching 10 years of age. Call the experts at Canella Heating & Air Conditioning to receive a quote on your replacement today.

Heat pumps are one of the more common types of HVAC solutions in this region of the country. While they look very similar to an air conditioning unit, heat pumps serve two functions. They are able to both heat and cool your home which helps simplify your HVAC system. Since the weather around this area is fairly mild, heat pumps are an effective way to heat and cool your home. These systems work by using refrigerant to transfer heat from outside into your house and vice versa during the summer. Even when it’s 35 degrees outside a heat pump is still capable of pulling in the heat it needs to warm your home. As temperatures drop below 35 degrees, a secondary source of heat may be required. These secondary sources usually consist of electric strip heat. While these are very good at heating your home they are not the most efficient way to do so.
A gas furnace only provides heat so a heat pump or air conditioner will be needed to cool your home. While heat pumps and furnaces both provide heat, they do so in very different ways. A heat pump will provide heat at temperatures similar to the set level on your thermostat maintaining a constant level of warmth. A gas furnace has the ability to produce heat at a high constant temperature, which gives you that warm toasty feeling. While a gas furnace is nice, it does require that you have natural gas running to your home. If you don't, it can cost a fortune to have lines run. Propane is another option, but the economics of heating this way can vary. We can run the numbers with you to determine if this is the right solution.
