Furnaces & Heaters
These systems burn natural gas, propane, oil, or use electricity to heat air and use a blower to distribute that air through ductwork in your home. With Iowa’s climate, furnaces are often going to be your best option and are less expensive than other heating systems.
An air source heat pump does not use fuel to generate heat. Instead, it pulls heat from surrounding air to warm the house. They’re typically best for mild climates. A geothermal heat pump uses the earth’s energy to create heat in an environmentally efficient way.
A boiler heats water to provide hot water or steam for heating that is distributed through a series of pipes. If you’re interested in zone heating (only heating the rooms you use), this is an option to consider. But a minimum temperature is required to prevent pipes from freezing.
These units combine heating and cooling systems into one and are typically located outside next to your home or on the roof, eliminating the need for a separate furnace inside. Ductwork is connected to the system through the roof or exterior wall.
