2 Innovative Heating Options for the Home

Innovative Heating

Homeowners across America have historically relied on the traditional furnace to keep them toasty-warm all winter, but there are other, more innovative heating options for the home. Even if you don’t have a furnace or live in a milder climate like that of Lubbock, Texas, it’s good to learn about some of the latest heating options out there.

Dual-Fuel Heat Pump

The dual-fuel heat pump concept essentially combines the gas-powered furnace with a heat pump to maximize comfort. Traditional heat pumps do not use fuel to operate, but the dual-fuel heat pump system does. During the winter months, the heat pump can draw on gas heat as needed, but electricity takes over when the temperature exceeds 35 degrees.

In regions with harsher winters, this type of system can potentially save homeowners thousands of dollars over the life of the system. In areas like Lubbock, where winters are milder, you can probably get by with a simple heat pump.

Geothermal Heat Pumps

One innovative option that’s already available in most of the country is the geothermal heat pump. While it’s a major investment in terms of up-front costs, a geothermal heat pump is super-efficient and can save you a huge chunk of money over its lifetime.

Geothermal heat pumps are also the greenest heating option on the market because they use the energy from the earth to heat homes. Long loops of pipes underground store liquid that’s warmed by the heat stored in the ground. Not only are geothermal heat pumps clean, safe, and quiet, but they are also reliable and have a longer lifespan than traditional furnaces.

Whether you’re looking to go green, save money on energy, or maximize your home’s comfort, Bruce Thornton Air Conditioning can help. Call BTAC at 806-589-1014 to discuss your current HVAC options.

I am so thankful for BTAC and the guys they sent out to repair a major hot and cold water leak under our slab. They knew what they were doing, and were very professional and polite, and I might add compassionate. They are an asset to the company!

To the credit of BTAC and it's management, I had a frustrating experience with them on a call out for a problem with a blower motor. I made my opinion known and contacted them through email to express it. They responded, sent out new technicians and made it right. That doesn't happen very often these days, and it's good to see a company show it cares about that. If you call these folks to come out, and your experience is what you expected, let them know, they'll work with you. 👍

I'm new to the Lubbock area and Bruce Thornton Air Conditioning was the first company we called. They had someone at our house to help in an hour and the service man had our AC fixed in 30 minutes. Their customer service was great from the receptionist who answered the phone to the hvac professional who fixed our AC!
