Is It Time To Upgrade Your Heating System? - Faithe Real Estate

Is It Time To Upgrade Your Heating System?

Winter has arrived and along with it, much colder temperatures. Maybe the heating system in your home has been in place since you moved in and you’re not sure if it is the best option for you, or you’ve recognized that heating your home is putting a hole in your pocket. Here are the different heating system options to help you find out if your current system is best for you, or if it is time for an upgrade so there will be no shivering indoors this season.

Boilers

Boilers heat the floor, walls, and air by circling heated water through a piping system loop. Electricity, propane, and natural gas can all power a boiler system and can distribute heat in a variety of ways. There are old-school steam radiators, hot water radiators, and hydronic radiant floor heating. Boiler systems are usually more expensive and costly to install, but are typically more quiet than forced air and can be more efficient than forced air systems.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps heat or cool your home by taking advantage of existing outdoors, underwater or underground temperatures. Air-source heat pumps are the most common, followed by the split ductless system and the geothermal system. While heat pumps tend to be more expensive than forced air or central heating and can be noisy, they will save you money in the long run because of just how efficient they are.

Furnaces

Furnaces, commonly referred to as forced air, are the most common system because while inexpensive, they are quite reliable. You may have an older furnace that needs replaced, and based on the current efficiency rating, it may be worth your time and money to invest in a new maximum efficiency furnace. A key factor in saving money with a furnace is making sure it is the right size for your home so it doesn’t overwork itself, costing you more in the end.

Robbie was amazing. He was able to get us the best sale price possible, and he was very responsive whenever we had questions or concerns during the process. I was also worried that selling would be a big headache, but Robbie and his crew made it super easy for us. We couldn’t be happier!

Robbie exceeded our expectations; he was knowledgeable of the market trends in our area. He realized the square footage of our home in the prior appraisals was lower than the real area and that enabled us to get a better price for the home. We would highly recommend Robbie to anybody interested in selling or purchase a home.

Robbie was such a pleasure to have as my realtor. He is always patient, kind, and helpful. I'm a first-time home-buyer, so there were a lot of things I needed to learn about and a lot of complicated documents to slog through. Robbie and his team guided me smoothly through the whole process. Robbie has a lot of experience in the Albuquerque real estate market and was able to give me good advice. He always responds to calls, texts, and emails right away, never keeps you waiting. Everyone on his team, from the people in his office to his fantastic loan officer to all the inspectors he lined up for me -- they were all top-notch, professional, and really pleasant to work with.

Robbie Faithe and Jamie Cline were instrumental in our efforts to find and purchase our first home. Robbie helped strongly negotiate our position in a market that is frankly predatory and outright hostile to homebuyers, especially first-timers with little experience. He helped us move to a swift close while making sure everything was conducted soundly, promptly and with our interests at the forefront. He was supportive of us through the entire process, even after our first negotiations fell through, and was adamant about finding a house that we would truly want, not just the first home that met our loose criteria. Jamie Cline was vital in her role to assist us with booking appointments as well as keeping us apprised of all deadlines and offering advice when we desired. Overall, though this first-time homebuying experience was very stressful at times, Robbie and his team made sure there were as few impediments to the process as possible while making sure we were taken care of. I would definitely recommend their homebuying services and expertise.
