Types of Heating Systems
Furnaces are a popular heating choice for many South Carolina homeowners due to their high efficiency. These heaters can quickly and evenly distribute warmth throughout the house, easily maintaining a consistent temperature.
These heaters are gaining popularity across the country as energy-efficient heating and cooling systems. Heat pumps offer reduced carbon footprints and potential cost savings on utility bills – a big advantage for SC homeowners.
Boilers are renowned for their exceptional heating efficiency and even heat distribution, making them a popular choice for many homeowners. They also offer high reliability and can last for many decades.
Ductless mini-splits offer zone-specific heating and cooling. These systems are also easier to install than most other traditional HVAC systems, allowing homeowners to avoid the expense and inconvenience of installing ductwork.

Most heating systems in South Carolina last between 15 to 30 years, depending on the type of system, the level of regular maintenance, and your usage patterns. Furnaces and boilers tend to last just under 20 years, but heat pumps and ductless mini-splits can keep ticking for up to 30 years if they’re well-maintained.

Yes – installing a new heater may positively impact your home's indoor air quality.
Newer, more updated heating systems are often more energy-efficient, which means they can operate more cleanly. Additionally, many modern heating systems come equipped with advanced air filtration features that can remove particles and allergens from the air, improving air quality.
Your new heating system alone may not address all of your indoor air quality concerns. However, updating your system may be a good place to start if you're struggling with poor air quality.
