There are several types of HVAC systems available for your home. HVAC systems, also known as heating, ventilation and cooling systems, provide plentiful heating, cooling and good indoor air quality. If this is not happening, you need to call your St. Paul heating service for repairs.

Everything from the biggest skyscrapers to fish tanks requires HVAC systems to regulate the internal conditions. The HVAC systems in the biggest of buildings are rather large and complex, but residential systems are more straightforward. The HVAC system in your home can be broken down into two basic parts, heating and cooling. When it comes to heating your home, there are two main options, furnaces or heat pumps.

Furnaces are the most common heating systems and can be found in homes all over St. Paul. The furnace heats air and uses a motor to propel the air through a series of ducts in your home. These ducts go into every room of your home delivering heat. Your furnace can use gas, propane, oil or electricity to generate the heat. A furnace is an affordable, powerful and user-friendly heating system that can be easily incorporated into an HVAC system.

Another popular heating appliance is the heat pump. A heat pump pulls heat from the outside air to warm the interior of your home. Heat pumps are also capable of reversing this process, thus acting as an air conditioner in hot conditions. The efficiency and versatility of heat pumps make them a popular choice with homeowners.
