What Are My Options for HVAC Installation?

If you’re searching for a new HVAC system, you’ve come to the right place. No matter if you’re a new homeowner who’s learning about HVAC systems for the first time, or someone who needs a replacement and this isn’t your first time at this rodeo, we’ve got you covered. 

The first thing you need to know about HVAC installation is that our EPA and NATE-certified technicians are well-equipped to handle any job. Let’s review your options for HVAC Installation in Belgrade, MT, and the surrounding areas. From heat pumps to furnaces, mini splits to central air, with our help, you’ll undoubtedly find the perfect HVAC system for your home and family.

Central Furnaces

Central furnaces remain the most popular choice for heating a home.  When shopping for a central furnace, there are a few things you’ll need to decide on. The first is whether you want gas or electric. This should be a fairly easy decision based on whether your home has an existing gas line.

Next, you’ll need to consider the AFUE rating which reflects how energy-efficient the furnace is. We recommend you go with a higher AFUE rating because you rely on a heating system heavily here in Montana

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are a great option for homeowners who are looking for a two-in-one system that provides both heating and air conditioning. Although heat pumps can struggle with efficiency and temperatures below freezing, there are cold-climate heat pumps that are designed to run efficiently in single-digit temperatures.

Heat pumps rely on refrigerant to provide heating and cooling. A component called the reversing valve allows a heat pump to easily switch between heating and cooling modes. 

Heat pumps use electricity and are considered extremely energy efficient compared to furnaces. That’s because they simply transfer heat from one place to another instead of generating heat. Heat pump efficiency is measured by SEER2 for cooling and HSPF2 for heating. The higher the numbers, the more efficient the system is.

Another great thing about heat pumps is that they are available in ducted and ductless models. A ducted heat pump connects to the ductwork in your home. But what if your home doesn’t have ductwork or it’s old and problematic? A ductless model is ideal for this situation. Keep reading!

Ductless Mini Splits

These systems consist of individual air handlers that we mount in the rooms/zones in your home. This provides you with the ability to achieve amazing comfort customization. 

Each family member can adjust the temperature in their bedroom. You can greatly reduce your utility costs by being able to adjust the temperature in one room/zone of your home at a time.

Central Air Conditioning

Don’t forget about air conditioning! Although our cooling season is short compared to the heating season, you still need an AC system to get you through the summer. Central air conditioners are a tried and true method of quickly and efficiently cooling down your home. Their efficiency is measured by SEER2 and the minimum rating for the North region is 13.4 but they go much higher.
