Call us for heat pump services!

At Taylor Heating Inc, we only install what we have investigated and found to be the best in furnaces from leading name brands such as Amana, American Standard, Lennox, and Goodman. Every model we offer is designed to provide maximum heat for minimum fuel usage and deliver reliable and economical warmth, with efficiency ratings from 80% all the way up to 95% AFUE. Many of our units are ENERGY STAR® qualified, which means they can significantly lower your utility bills. For optimal comfort and efficiency, we can combine a gas furnace with an electric heat pump in one dual-fuel system.

Energy-Efficient Furnaces
The efficiency of your furnace is determined by its Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating. The minimum efficiency level for furnaces in the U.S. is 80% AFUE, meaning that for every dollar you spend on heating your home, 80 cents actually goes towards generating heat. Compared to many 60% AFUE furnaces, 80% AFUE furnaces are a significant improvement. However, for enhanced energy efficiency, you may wish to consider a furnace, such as Goodman’s line of 95% AFUE furnaces.

Types of furnaces we install
• Gas • Electric • Propane • Oil • Wall Furnaces • Heat Pumps

A heat pump might be perfect for your home!

A heat pump can both heat and cool and, in some applications, is preferred over separate heating and cooling systems. Taylor Heating Inc can show you how to make this work for your home and budget.

Heat pumps use a small amount of energy to move heat from one location to another. They usually pull heat out of the air or ground to heat a building, but they can be reversed to cool a building, too. 

One of the biggest advantages of a heat pump over a standard HVAC unit is that there’s no need to install separate systems to heat and cool your home. Heat pumps are efficient because they simply transfer heat, rather than burn fuel to create it. This makes them more eco-friendly than a gas-burning furnace.

Of course, heat pumps don’t just heat and cool buildings. If you’ve ever enjoyed a hot tub or a heated swimming pool, then you probably have a heat pump to thank!

You can rely on our experienced customer service representatives to help you pick out the perfect heat pump to fit the needs of your home!
