When it is time to upgrade your current heating system, on top of added energy-efficiency, there are great rebates and incentives available now!
We even offer a multitude of financing options. At SolvIt we design and install the following types of home heating systems:
Gas & Oil Furnaces
Furnaces are powered by gas or oil heating a series of tubes in the system, using a blower to push air across the tubes and into the air ducts distributing it throughout the home. A combination of ducts and filters keep the air in your home moving smoothly and cleanly. Furnaces last upwards of 20-25 years with proper maintenance.
Electric heat is a very popular choice, especially where natural gas is not available or practical. It’s highly efficient, quiet, safe, and requires minimal ongoing maintenance. It is much easier to control household temperatures from one room to another. What’s more, it’s clean burning since the system doesn’t burn fossil fuels.
Gas & Oil Boilers
A boiler uses water instead of air as the heat carrying medium. After the water is heated in the boiler, your heating system carries the water to baseboard heaters or radiators throughout your home. This form of heat is preferred by many because it doesn’t require ductwork, which requires extra maintenance or extra air filtering.
Our team of contractors provide fast and convenient heating installation services for homeowners in areas such as Bridgeport, Stamford, Greenwich, New Haven, Waterbury, Hartford, and Norwalk. Our technicians have the tools and equipment necessary to fix your malfunctioning furnace, boiler, or heating system. Our professionals are committed to keeping your house warm throughout the winter season to ensure your family is safe.
Ductless Heat Pumps
Ductless heat pump systems are a great fit for add-ons to houses or areas without a ducted heating system. This can also be beneficial in very efficient new homes that require only a small heating system. The main advantage of a ductless heat pump is their small size and flexibility for zoning or heating individual rooms.
Radiant Floor Heating
Radiant heating is especially popular in new home construction but can be added to any existing home too. A series of coils are installed under your floors or inside your walls. Next, the heat enters your living space and heats objects instead of the air, thus making it extremely energy efficient, powered by electricity or water. Water-based systems are the most popular and cost-effective and can even include individual room temperature control.
A heat pump system offers an energy-efficient alternative to a furnace. Like your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the winter, the heat pump system will move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm home. The main benefit of a heat pump system is it’s ability to reduce the electricity you use for heating by as much as 30% to 40%.

Updates to the Regional HVAC Equipment Efficiency and Testing Standards
Effective January 1, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will update its efficiency and testing standards for residential and commercial HVAC equipment. All regulatory changes will differ by product type and region. Since the updated standards will result in price increases across all HVAC contractors, now is the time to buy the equipment you need for your home or business.
The minimum efficiency standards for residential and commercial air conditioners and heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will increase production efficiency and national energy savings while decreasing national energy consumption.
Northern U.S. & Canada
All split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured after January 1, 2023, must meet the updated standards. However, split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured before January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 13 SEER to 15 SEER in these regions.
Split-system air conditioners manufactured before January 1, 2023, can’t be installed once the updated standards take effect. All installations of products that don’t meet the new standards must be completed by December 31, 2022. However, split-system heat pumps, single-packaged air conditioners, and single-packaged heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 14 SEER to 15 SEER in both the Southwest and Southeast regions.
In addition to higher minimum efficiency standards, the M1 testing procedures used for residential and 3 to 5-ton light commercial, single-phase equipment manufactured on or after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will produce more accurate SEER, EER, and HSPF efficiency ratings. Manufacturers will be required to re-test equipment using the new M1 Standard requirements as well as publish equipment efficiency ratings using the new efficiency metrics of SEER2, EER2, and HSPF2.
