3 Efficient Ways to Heat Your Home, Liberty, Ohio

Maintaining a heated home when you need it most is essential to your comfort. Whether it’s freezing outside or you’re just craving some warmth, a functional furnace is the key to home heat. The team at Lenox Heating & Cooling, based in Chillicothe, OH, has some tips on the most efficient ways to keep your home warm.

The goal of heat efficiency is twofold. You want to make sure that your house is comfortably warm, yet you don’t want to crank up the heater so high that your energy bills soar equally high. Here are three efficient methods of heating your home:

  • HeatHeat Pumps: A heat pump produces home heat by extracting warmth from outside air and pumping it inside. They’re efficient because they don’t have to work overtime to generate that heat—they simply take what already exists and transfer it indoors. They also tend to utilize less electricity than a furnace. Bear in mind that heat pumps are less effective in areas where harsh, bitterly cold winters occur.
  • Furnaces: Gas furnaces produce heat no matter how bitter the season is, and this makes them an efficient option for most homes. Gas is also a more cost-effective option than other types of fuel.
  • Geothermal Heating: Similar to a heat pump, geothermal heating systems operate by pulling heat from the ground instead of from the air. By relying on the earth’s temperature, it can efficiently warm the home and even provide hot water.

All of these methods have their pros and cons, and how efficient one may be in providing home heat for your property depends on several factors, including your location and general weather patterns. The air conditioning and furnace professionals at Lenox Heating & Cooling can help you make an informed decision and answer any questions you might have.
