What Are My Options When It Comes to Geothermal Installation?

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Heating and cooling the home with a geothermal system saves homeowners across the country hundreds of dollars each year in energy costs, and it may do the same for you. A geothermal heat pump works a lot like an air conditioner, removing heat from the home in order to provide a source of cool air in the summer. But during the heating season, a geothermal system can work in reverse, pumping heat into the home thanks to the reliable temperatures deep within the earth. Geothermal systems are one of the top choices for renewable heating and AC, saving you money and reducing your environmental impact.

For quality geothermal heating installation in Austin from professionals experienced with these unique units, discuss your options with the professionals at Roznovak.

Vertical or Horizontal Installation

When you decide that a new geothermal system is the right choice for you, you still have a couple of other big decisions to make. Most importantly, you and your technician will need to decide upon whether vertical or horizontal installation is best suited to your needs. The type of installation that goes onto your home will depend on some key factors. First, the amount of space on your property may determine which type of installation you need. If there is not enough room on the property to dig a wide trench for horizontal loop installation, space considerations may force you into vertical installation, in which the loop system is installed upright in a deep hole.

If your property allows for either type of installation, there are still a couple of other things to keep in mind. Horizontal installation tends to be less expensive. On the other hand, more of your landscaping must be wiped out in order to make room.

Choosing a Quality Company

The second major choice you’ll need to make is which company to go with for installation. Despite its rising popularity, it turns out that most contractors do not offer geothermal installation. First, you’ll need to find a company experiences in geothermal installation and service. But also, you’ll want to find a contractor with a good name, backed by positive customer reviews and a history of quality service.

At Roznovak, we have years of experience installing geothermal systems, and we strive to make any type of heating installation in Austin as hassle-free as possible. Call us today, and find out why so many people make the switch over to this effective and efficient renewable resource.

Steps to Take before Heating Installation

Monday, January 5th, 2015

Installing a new central heater for a home may sound like an intimidating task, but it shouldn’t be. If you rely on professional heating service in Hutto, TX from Roznovak, the job will go speedily and with few issues. You can trust to our experience to see that your new heater does the job it is supposed to, and will do it for many years to come.

Here are a few steps you can take to help ensure a great new heating installation:

  • Decide on the right type of heater to suit your needs: There are more heating options available today than ever, so choosing a new heater can sometimes present a daunting challenge. If you are replacing an older system, you will probably stay with the same type. However, if you are putting in the first heater for a new home, you must choose among systems like furnaces, heat pumps, ductless heating, and geothermal. The right type of heating for your home will depend on the available fuel sources, factors regarding your house, and your budget plans. Work with professionals to be certain that you make the best choice possible.
  • Have the heater properly sized: This is a key step where you will be glad that you have professionals to assist you. A new heating system must be the right size to provide the heat level you require for comfort but without overworking and draining energy. A heater that is too large for its space is as bad as one that is too small. Skilled technicians will perform a heat load calculation to determine the amount of BTUs a new heater must generate to find the ideal middle ground between effective warmth and efficient performance.
  • Schedule a convenient time: Heating installation usually requires a day to complete. The actual time varies, but your installers should be able to give you an accurate estimate once you have decided on what system to install. Plan to have the work done when you won’t need to have the heat on in the house, preferable when few people will be home, and expect the work to take up at least a few hours.
  • Clear access to the work zone: The installers will take precautions to protect your home by laying down floor coverings. However, you can make the job go faster by moving furniture and other large obstacles to the basement or cabinet in your home where the new heating system will go.

For the most part, you will not have to worry about the details of heating installation if you have a quality team to handle the work. Our technicians at Roznovak have provided Hutto, TX with residential heating service since 1979, and we are experienced with performing fast and effective installations of many types of systems. Call us when you first decide that you need new heating, and we will take care of selecting and sizing the new unit so that you end up with the ideal new home heater for your needs.

Steps to Take for a New Heating Installation

Friday, November 7th, 2014

A new heating system can help increase your energy efficiency, improve comfort and provide you with a reliable performance. But to make sure you install a system that fits you and your home, it’s important to take a few critical steps. Since 1979, Roznovak has provided residential heating services in Austin, TX, and our expert technicians have installed all kinds of heating systems. If you are ready for a new heating system, call us today!

Step 1: Type of System

There are so many options available to homeowners when it comes to choosing a new heating system that it can be overwhelming. One of the best ways to manage this is to understand what types of systems are available and the basics of how they work. Roznovak carries the following types of systems:

  • Furnaces – gas and electric
  • Heat pumps
  • Geothermal systems
  • Ductless systems

Each of these systems can effectively heat your home, but each heats differently. Furnaces are one of the most common and traditional types of heating systems, commonly using gas, oil, propane or electricity to heat your home. Heat pumps don’t generate heat at all; instead, they transfer heat from one area to another. Geothermal systems harness that natural, steady temperature of the Earth below the frost line to heat your home, and ductless systems use heat pump technology to heat and cool your home without the use of air ducts.

Step 2: Sizing

Too often, we hear that all you need to know to buy a properly-sized heater is the square footage of your home; this is not true. To accurately calculate the heat load for your home, you need to factor in your home’s orientation, daytime heat gain, the type and number of windows and doors you have, insulation levels, floor plan, number of occupants and number of rooms. It is a complex calculation, and one that a trained technician can help you with.

Step 3: Fuel Type

The most commonly-used fuel types for heating systems are natural gas, oil and electricity, but you can also use propane, solid fuels and solar energy. Some households do not have access to all fuel types, so this is something to be aware of when selecting a new heating system.

Taking these steps before choosing and installing a heating system helps ensure that you select a system that will provide you and your family with many years of warmth and comfort. If you need help deciding what system best fits with your home, take advantage of our Roznovak residential heating services and schedule an appointment with one of our specialists today.
