Heating your home with a wood or gas fireplace like the one pictured here is a cozy solution to staying warm
With the cold beginning to sweep through town, you’ve begun to think about wintertime. Finally, it’s time to prepare for family gatherings, gingerbread cookies, and warm nights around the fire. Or maybe you don’t have a fireplace?

Every home tackles its heating problems differently, and now is the time to consider whether yours fits your needs or not. The right heating system can change your entire quality of life, so why not consider making a change for the better? Whether you plan on installing or replacing your old heating system, choose a design that suits your particular needs. Here are a few methods you may want to consider while making your choice.


The most common central heat system among American households is a furnace. To produce heated air, a furnace burns fuel(natural gas, electricity, or heating oil). The stove then blows that heated air through ducts across the home.

Gravity furnaces work similarly to most modern furnaces. However, they use gravity to warm air up through extensive ductwork to the floors above it. This system eliminates the need for fans but is very inefficient. As such, we regularly change them for more modern furnaces that use forced air.


While a furnace provides heated air, a residential boiler, on the other hand, uses natural gas, fuel, or heating oil to produce heated water. The boiler system then sends this water to devices such as radiators. A less common variation called the steam boiler heats water to release steam that will warm up the house.

Heat Pumps

Central heating systems also include heat pumps that work as two-way air conditioners. During the winter, they suck heat out of your home in summer and bring in heat — aided by an electrical system. The efficacy of these systems depends on the temperature difference between a home and the outdoors.

Direct Heating Systems

Of course, central heating systems don’t have the same “wow” factor as direct heating systems such as fireplaces or stoves. That’s part of the reason why many people opt for these older heating systems. Fireplaces and wood-burning stoves produce heat that slowly radiates outward, slowly warming a building. Of course, the downside of these heating measures is pollution, waste, and possibly unwanted home fires.

Space heaters are the go-to option when you only want to heat a single room. Gas-fired space heaters are less costly than electric ones and provide a decent amount of heat without stove or fireplace pollution.

“This past week I had the need for a plumber and I reviewed the telephone book and selected from the advertisements your company to attend to the matter. The company sent Austin Steinbach to attend to and review the problem. He is a very knowledgeable young man who communicates well and does his work in a very thorough and professional manner. I was very satisfied with his service. Mr. Steinbech is a credit to your company. Very often in communities someone asks whether they are aware of a plumber or other technician that can be recommended. In this regard, I am comfortable in recommending Mr. Steinbech and your company. Thank you for the service rendered.”

“Quick & competent work done to high satisfaction. Darrell Begay provided quick service and very professional work when he came to install a new toilet seat. We had not been able to do the work ourselves, so it was a relief to have Darrell and Done Plumbing get here so quickly to take care of the task. We appreciate all Done as done for us”

“Just a note of thanks for being the Best plumbing and heating company. I have used you often and have been impressed every time. I called for a drain cleaning and was told a technician could come the same day. He arrived an hour ealier than was quoted, was very professional and did a great job at a very reasonable price with my coupon that he honored. I would never use another company and would recommend you to anybody that needs help. The technician that did such a great job was Austin, but every technician you have sent has been the best. Thanks again for such a wonderful company”

~ Karla W Golden, CO

“It was very professional, prompt & the technician explained many things well. Very happy throughout the whole process – from the customer service rep who answered the phone this morning to the technician explaining building codes to me.
