Other Heating Options
- Boiler Systems
- Heat Pump Systems
- Mini Split Systems
One popular alternative to a gas furnace heating system is a boiler system. Boilers are generally reliable systems, they have a long operating life, they are efficient, and they heat without a blower which means they don’t move dust or other debris around in the air like a standard central heating system. Other positives are they don’t dry out the air and have quiet operation.
There are two types of boilers, hot water and steam boilers. They operate by burning natural gas or fuel oil. A boiler warms the house by circulating steam or hot water through radiators in the home. The radiators dispel heat into the room around them and the water circulates back through the system to be reheated and then returns to the radiator.
At Lincoln Heating & Air we offer professional boiler installation and replacement.
The most important factor in any systems long term effectiveness is the quality of installation. Boilers can be very intricate and detailed projects. The boiler itself must be properly calibrated. Additionally a boiler system has many attaching pipes, valves, and fitting that all need to be carefully connected. Make sure to consider the lifelong value of your investment and get an experienced company to like Lincoln Heating & Air to install your boiler.

Heat Pump Systems
Despite what the name might make you think, a heat pump will both heat and cool your house. It functions like a two directional air conditioner. Instead of being limited to the function of removing heat from inside the house to outdoors. It also has the capability of moving heat from outside to the indoors. The main limitation to a heat pump is that when the temperatures outside drop very low. When there is very little heat in the air, it can be hard for the heat pump to keep up with the heating demand inside the house. One way to address this weakness is to install a heat pump with your traditional furnace. This will allow you to capture the energy efficiency of the heat pump and use the gas furnace on those days where temperatures drop extremely low.
A heat pump is a very energy efficient way to heat and cool your home. Principally because it does not use its energy source to directly create heat. It uses heat that is already in the air and moves it to another location. This approach saves a lot of money on an energy bill. That being said these systems are more technologically advanced than a standard air conditioning system and therefore come with a higher cost up front. If you are thinking long term, the efficiency will save you money in the end.
Heat pumps also have the advantage of humidity control. In the summer months the system will dehumidify your home keeping it comfortable. Conversely, in the winter it won’t dry out the air like a traditional gas furnace.

Mini Split Systems
Mini Splits are air conditioning and heating apparatuses. The design allows for indoor heads to individually connect to an outdoor unit. The indoor units have evaporator coils that cool the air as it passes through them. Then the refrigerant in the system carries the heat outdoors to be discharged at the outdoor unit.
This system uses no duct work. In fact they are commonly called ductless mini split systems. No duct work means that they don’t lose any efficiency from air leaks in the duct. Instead of one central coil cooling the air as it is carried from around the house, there is a coil inside each head unit. These units cool each individual room instead of pushing cold air through a duct system to each rooms. There are many advantages to this setup. They are generally easier to install and less intrusive than a full centralized system install. They allow specified settings for each room, and they are very quiet and energy efficient. They are also heat pumps. Which means they can be used to heat and cool the home.
