The New Hampshire Heating Experts
In New Hampshire, most homes are heated with either furnaces or boilers most often fueled with natural gas, LP gas (or Liquid Propane), oil or even biodiesel products. Furnaces heat air and distribute the heated air through the house using ducts; boilers heat water, providing either hot water or steam for heating. Steam is distributed via pipes to steam radiators, and hot water can be distributed via baseboard radiators or radiant floor systems, or can heat air via a coil. Steam boilers operate at a higher temperature than hot water boilers, and are inherently less efficient, but high-efficiency versions of all types of furnaces and boilers are currently available.

Selecting and Replacing Heating Systems
When we work with homeowners to replace an existing heating system, it's important to first consider the limitations imposed by the current system. Of course, it is possible to install virtually any heating and cooling system in any house, but the cost and aesthetic impacts may be unacceptable. When selecting a heating system for a new house, the options are generally much wider, although your builder or developer may place limitations on your choices.
For both new and existing homes, Bill Trombly Plumbing Heating and Cooling will work with you to first maximize the energy efficiency of your home. This is the most cost-effective means of keeping your home comfortable. After doing so, we’ll explore what you can do to make use of passive solar heating in your home.
