Heating Installation 101: Types of Systems for Your Home

You know you need a new heating system, but do you know what kind? Not all heating systems are created equal. In fact, there are several types of heating systems you can install in your home. The key is simply knowing the difference between them. Here are a few things to know about heating systems available to you today:

  • Central vs. Direct Heat. Today, the majority of homes use central heat. Central heating systems deliver warm air via ducts throughout the house.
  • Boilers vs. Heat Pumps. Boilers are actually specialized water heaters. Heat pumps, meanwhile, are two-way systems that move heat within your home.
  • Ductless, MiniSplit, and Multi-Split. Lakeshore Heating and Cooling installs these systems on a regular basis. Ideal for residential properties, these systems are ideal for moving heat throughout large spaces.

What’s Heating Installation Cost?

It’s common to wonder how much heating installation costs. The answer, though, is varied. In some cases, heating installation will be very expensive. In others, it will be very affordable. The difference lies primarily in the type of system you install. If you choose to add gas central heating, you’re likely to spend between $6,000 and $8,000. Other systems may be more or less expensive depending on the scope of work. To learn more, it’s wise to speak directly with a heating installation professional like Lakeshore Heating and Cooling.

We have used Lakeshore -- (ie. Saul) -- since we have been in our home (over 7 years now). We cannot say enough wonderful things about him! We trust him fully with everything! And Saul is such a wonderful, thoughtful, and respectful person. He will take care of YOU and yours fully! His work is second to none! He will do everything he needs to in order to get the job done in working order and precisely. He is an expert at HVAC and even has expertise in various appliances (refrigerator, stove, toilets, etc). If he cannot fix it he is always able to recommend the best for whatever job needs to be done. Saul is thoughtful, respectful, and trustworthy. He knows and treats us like his own family. That alone is worth its weight in gold.

Sal is great. Great work, professional and friendly. He explained everything about individual A/C units and their SEER. He gave me great options in choosing a unit and never tried to push the sale. Hopefully I don’t have anymore HVAC issues for awhile, but if so, Sal will be my go to.

We are so happy to have been referred to Lakeshore Heating. We were using Classic Aire until the quoted my mother an outrageous price to repair her furnace two years ago. Since then we have replaced our 30 year old furnace and installed a new AC earlier this summer. Saul’s pricing was better than all the competition and he services West County. Highly recommend.
