Heating Systems We Install & Replace
How you keep your home warm through the D.C. winter, the team at Len The Plumber Heating & Air will be happy to help you find a new system to meet your needs:
Furnaces are the simplest and most common form of heating, producing heat fueled by oil, natural gas, or electricity, then moving that heat around with air via ductwork. These systems generate fast, effective heating that’s drier and more intense than the boiler and heat pumps.
Boilers generate heat and move it around via water, either steam or liquid, passing through pipes and radiators around your home. These long-lasting systems produce highly efficient and gentle heat.
Unlike furnaces or boilers, which produce heat, a heat pump moves heat around the same way an air conditioner does. The electricity consumed compresses outdoor heat into your refrigerant line, which delivers the heat into your home.
At temperatures above freezing, this is incredibly efficient, though at very low temperatures, it takes more energy and work to collect enough heat from outside to warm your home.

Frequently Asked Questions
When should I replace my heating system?
You’ll want to replace your heating system if it can’t keep you comfortable, needs frequent repairs, or needs repairs that cost more than 50% of the unit’s value.
Which heating system is most energy-efficient?
Heat pumps have the highest efficiency potential when temperatures are above freezing.
Between the cost of installation, differences in fuel costs, and energy usage, the most efficient system for a particular home or budget can vary significantly.
Your HVAC technician can recommend the best system for you.
How long do heating systems last?
Most furnaces and boilers last 15 to 20 years, while heat pumps last for 10 to 15 years.
Of course, the system life span is contingent on annual heating maintenance to extend the life span of your new system; without professional help mitigating wear and tear on your system, it could fail much sooner or cost a lot more to keep operational.
