Things to Consider when Replacing your Furnace:
  • Choose the Right Furnace: The furnace you choose impacts your comfort, energy costs, and family for many years to come. There are a lot of different models of furnaces to choose from. It is important to let an expert help you make the best choice for your home, your lifestyle, and your comfort needs. 
  • Balance Efficiency & Power: The most energy efficient furnace on the market might not be the best way to heat your home during Wisconsin’s harsh winters. Consider your home’s requirements as well as the cost to maintain the heating system and the potential energy savings over the life of your system.
  • Quality Installation is Essential: The quality of your installation is the most important part of the equation. Proper sizing and installation of your furnace will have a bigger impact on the longevity and efficiency of your equipment than the brand or the model.

Types of Residential Heating Systems

24/7 Furnace Repair Service

Furnaces operate by heating air and pumping it through the ducts of your home. While propane furnaces are most common in Southeast Wisconsin, your furnace may work by burning oil or even wood pellets. The heating technicians at Southport will find the right furnace for your home.  

Finding the right furnace starts by contacting a heating contractor who will assess the size of your home and determine which furnace is right for you. An oversized furnace will have a high operating cost, while an undersized furnace will be working overtime to properly heat your home.

The efficiency of a furnace is rated by Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). Most modern furnaces operate between 80 and 95% AFUE, meaning less than 15% of energy is lost on average. Propane and natural gas furnaces are typically more efficient than oil or firewood.

Emergency Boiler Repair

Common in older homes, boilers work by heating water which is pumped through pipes which radiate heat to through your home. The efficacy of the system is largely dependent on the style of pipes used. Boilers typically run on natural gas but can also use oil.

Finding the right boiler is largely dependent on the size of your home and the style of heating elements. The heating technicians at Southport Home Systems will analyze your home and find the most efficient boiler at the right price.

Older boilers typically only operate around 56 to 70% Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). Newer mid and high-efficiency boilers operate around 80 to 83% and 90 to 98.5% AFUE respectively. Retrofitting older or mid-efficiency boilers with a new heat exchanger will help improve energy efficiency and fuel consumption.

Residential Heat Pump Repair

Essentially an air conditioner capable of heating air, heat pumps work by moving warm air to where it is needed most in your home. Heat pumps require an indoor and outdoor system. A heat pump is not right for everyone and is best suited for newer homes.

While heat pumps do heat air, their efficiency lies in their ability to move warm air where it is needed most. By using previously warmed air, heat pumps are typically 40 to 60% more efficient than standard furnaces. Heating costs are lower than other systems, but operating costs are slightly higher.  

The expert heating technicians at Southport Home Services will analyze your property and determine which heating system is best for you. When paired with newer heating controls a heat pump can save your family thousands. Contact Southport to see if a heat pump is right for you.

WHY MAINTENANCE IS IMPORTANT
  • Save Money: Maintenance is less expensive than emergency repairs
  • Minimize Risk of Failure: Most repairs we’ve done could have been prevented with regular maintenance
  • Stay in Warranty: Most manufacturer warranties are void if regular maintenance hasn’t been performed
  • Prevent Fire Hazards: Improperly operating gas connections are a fire hazard and can contribute to health problems
  • Prevent Gas Buildup: A dirty burner or cracked heat exchanger causes improper burner operation and could lead to dangerous carbon monoxide levels in your home
  • Monitor Gas Lines: We check all gas connections, gas pressure, burner combustion, and inspect your heat exchanger during maintenance visits

THE IMPORTANCE OF SEASONAL TUNE-UP TIMING

Homeowners like yourself often think they need to have their heating system maintenance or tune-up done just before the start of the season. The truth is the timing doesn’t matter as long as everything is checked out around the same time (within a few months) annually.
