Are you in the market for a new heating system for your Madison County home? Choosing the right system for your home, family, and budget can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be! Take a little time to learn about what to consider when choosing a new heating system, and gain a better understanding of what will work best for you. Read this article to learn more about choosing the right heating system for winters in Madison County.


There are two types of furnaces: gas and electric. Gas furnaces heat your home by burning combustible fuels. They either use gas or propane. Electric furnaces run off electricity, and they heat your home by pushing air over a hot element, heating it up before it enters your home. 

Platinum 95 Furnace:

The Platinum 95 Furnace offers the best in heating efficiency. This system optimizes humidity and percent of fuel burned to provide you with the best comfort levels and lowest energy bills. It even runs quietly and distributes warm air evenly throughout every room of your home with its variable-speed fan motor. 

Gas S9V2-VS Gas Furnace:

This gas furnace is the quietest we have to offer! It provides efficient performance with consistent flow of warm, comfortable air. This variable speed system is also designed to accommodate virtually any home with its industry-changing cabinet design.

American Standard 92 Furnace:

The American Standard 92 Furnace provides reliable and efficient operation at a great value. With high fuel-to-heat conversion, you’ll pay less to heat your home and also reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This furnace has a multi-speed blower motor and operates quietly.

Heat Pump

A heat pump can work as an air conditioner or a heating system by using one refrigerant line. They use outside air and pressurized refrigerant lines to absorb heat and emit it into your home. Heat pumps from American Standard are great because they keep your home cool and comfortable in the summer, and warm in the winter. They can even regulate your home’s humidity, making them the most efficient choice on the market. We often recommend heat pumps to homeowners in our area, they are perfect for North Alabama weather!

The Platinum 20 Heat Pump is the most efficient on the market. This heat pump uses variable speed heating and cooling to maximize home comfort at a lower operating cost. It offers the quietest operation compared to its nearest competitors, and continually operates instead of cycling on and off, providing the most consistent temperatures for your home at maximum efficiency. This system can improve heating capacity by as much as 20% while lowering your bills by as much as 50% per year, depending on your current system.

Its low profile design is built for space-constrained areas making it perfect for hotels, condos, restaurants, outdoor living spaces, and bedrooms. Working in conjunction with your thermostat, it keeps appropriately tempered air circulating throughout your home, reducing temperature variances.

Silver 15 Heat Pump:

The Silver 15 Heat Pump provides consistent comfort and efficiency through single-stage heating and cooling. This system comes at a great value and even reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Many models meet efficiency requirements for a federal energy tax credit when installed as part of a complete system. Even better, it still offers quiet operation and durable elements.
