The size of your home and budget will help determine what route to take. We suggest working with our team so that you’re making the right decision for your home. Heating can be a significant investment, and we know you’d like to get the most for your money.

Gas Furnaces

Although not as popular in our area, gas furnaces are a good option for those that like more radiant heat in their home. If your current furnace is more than ten years old, you should consider installing a more efficient model. Modern furnaces provide better air quality and keep costs down through sheer efficiency. One of the most important parts about picking the perfect gas furnace for your home is ensuring it is the right size. You could be upgrading to save money, but if the gas furnace isn’t the right size, you won’t be making any progress towards that goal.

Heat Strips and Pumps

The most common way to heat a home in Polk County is through a heat pump equipped with heat strips. This is the most effective way to heat a home in our climate. FAE can install a heat pump that is both energy efficient and appropriate for the size of your home. If you think of the way an air conditioner works, a heat pump is the same concept. When temperatures are cold, the heat strips help the heat pump regulate your home’s comfort level. Heat strips come on for three main reasons: longer than usual run times, increased demand during cold spells, and to defrost the heat pump. By outfitting your heat pump with heating strips, we can prepare for any drop in temperature, even for an extended period of time.
