Choosing a New Heating and Cooling System
It’s shocking how many heating system options are available today. Chances are you’ve probably lived with one type of heating system for most of your adult life. The alternatives have been out there, but didn’t have reason to give it much thought—till now.
Fact is, depending on your situation, certain types of heating systems wouldn’t be a fit for your home. It takes the advice of a professional to sort through the options. Boulden Brothers are here to help find the right one for you.

Types of AC units
A complete replacement of your air conditioning system is no small task. Technological advancements mean there are many more options today. That’s why talking to a Boulden Brothers AC professional is a great way to ensure you choose the best unit to fit your family’s needs.
A split system is an increasingly popular type of AC unit. These systems feature a unit containing the condenser coil outside and an indoor HVAC unit with an evaporator coil inside at the point of use. Homes with ductwork may opt for this type of AC unit for increased energy efficiency. This can save you money if you have some rooms that don’t need cool air. On the other hand, split systems can end up being more expensive than a traditional ducted HVAC unit if used to cool the entire house. That’s why the most economical choice is to start your air conditioning replacement project by visiting with a Boulden Brothers professional.
Types of Heating Systems
There’s a wide variety of heating system choices. Because of Boulden Brothers over 74 years of experience, we provide a wide range of choices and the know-how to install them correctly. Whether it’s a gas or oil furnace, heat pump, electric heating system or baseboard heat, we ready to help you make the right decision from among the best brands available when it comes to heating installation, maintenance and repair.
AC Repair vs AC Replacement
If your unit isn’t exactly at the expiration point yet and it’s simply not working right, you might be reluctant to replace your unit before attempting a couple of fixes first. Some repair costs may appear inexpensive in the short-term while others are likely to increase over time. To help you decide when to repair or replace, see our list below.
It’s also worth noting that if you decide to go with a furnace-based heating system, you’ll have to decide whether you want an 80% AFUE model, a 97+% AFUE model, or something in between. The main difference between these two types of furnaces lies in their fuel efficiency. An 80% AFUE furnace costs less up front, but it wastes more fuel than its 97% counterparts.
It can be tempting to go for the 80% AFUE furnace because of its lower initial cost, but you will save more money over time with the higher efficiency models if you can manage the higher installation cost. However, either of these options will likely be more efficient than your older unit, so you should wind up with lower energy bills regardless of your choice.
Energy Efficient Home Heating
In fact, energy efficiency in and of itself can be a good reason to upgrade your heating system now, even if your older system is still getting the job done. The new models in just about every category of heating system are much more energy efficient than their predecessors that the monthly savings will be well worth the up-front costs. We’re proud to offer a wide range of Energy Star qualified heating systems designed to keep you cozy on those cold winter nights for a fraction of the price of your older model.
