Which Heating Systems Work Best for Me and My Home?
There are many good heating systems available, and what’s best for your home is a very personal decision. A lot of people go with the traditional furnace because today’s units are much more efficient and safer than those manufactured decades ago. However, some people select a heat pump for the same reasons. For others, a ductless heating and cooling system may be the best bet. Some prefer a "hybrid," or dual fuel system. The professionals at Russell & Abbott will offer options, and help you determine the right system for your home––and your budget.
Common Reasons to Call for Heating Service
If your heating system is not performing properly, it is important to have a professional check it out. The longer you wait, the more damaged your system may become.
Call for service if your system:
- Fails to heat
- Makes abnormal noises
- Emits unusual odors, especially natural gas odor
Strange noises and reduced heating are problems that could worsen over time as parts become overworked and begin to fail. System checks and tune–ups are recommended twice each year: once in the fall to prepare for winter and once in the spring to prepare for summer, when your system works hardest. By joining the Russell & Abbottt Comfort Club, you will receive bi–annual maintenance check–ups and will be given priority status if you should require a service call.

You can get heating in your home without having to install ducts. Ductless heating, which is also called a mini–split system, is often used in places where it is not possible to run additional duct, such as log cabins, older homes or homes on a concrete slab. Some homeowners add mini–splits to supplement traditional ducted systems for "cold spots" in the house, such as a bonus room over a garage, a bedroom or on an enclosed porch. Small indoor air handlers are mounted in different areas of the house to provide a steady source of whole–home heating which works well in the Tennessee winter.
Furnaces remain the most popular heating systems in the United States, in part because they have a history of providing safe and consistent heating. We install and service gas and electric furnaces so that you can get the prompt, consistent heating of a furnace no matter what fuel sources are available in your home.
Heat pumps can replace both air conditioning and heating systems, as it can both remove heat from the home and bring heat into the house. Heat pumps are rising in popularity due to their efficiency ratings, as it uses less energy to move heat around from one area to another than other systems use to generate heat.
A dual fuel heating and cooling system is a combination of a heat pump for primary heating and cooling and a furnace (usually natural gas) that provides a second and/or third stage of heating. This type of system is sometimes referred to as a "dual fuel" system or a "hybrid" system. Dual fuel systems are highly recommended because of their efficiency, cost–effectiveness and versatility.
When you notice trouble with your heating system, act fast. Delaying repair may cause costly damage to your system. Call our certified Knoxville area heating repair professionals any time that you believe that your home comfort or safety may be at risk.
A new thermostat may actually help to lower your monthly heating bills, especially if you currently rely on an outdated model to control your furnace or heat pump. Consider a new wireless, digital, or smart thermostat to improve your comfort and the efficiency of your heating system.
Zone Control System
A zone control system allows everyone in the home greater control over the heating and cooling system with separate thermostats for each room or zone in the house. Zone control can even help to cut your monthly bills as you won’t have to worry about heating or cooling unoccupied spaces.
