Cold? None of us like it, and neither does your house. Northeast winters, especially in the Poconos winters sure can get brutal. We know the challenges of getting firewood and keeping it stocked and ready for what a Northeast winter has in store.
For heating your home, we have a few different options to choose from depending on your application, budget, installation, and needs.

Much like Central Air on the Cooling side, a Heat Pump uses the outside air to heat your home throughout the cold months. You will have an outdoor unit and an indoor unit, which is called an air handler. Using the same method as when cooling your home, a compressor will circulate refrigerant to absorb and release heat between the indoor and outdoor unit. Your heat pump will constantly move warm air from place to place. Whereas a heat pump will use electricity to move heat from one place to another, a furnace uses fuel to create heat.
A Hybrid heat pump system can give you the best option out of all that are available. Some years propane is affordable, while the next year maybe oil is more affordable, only to find out the year after that electric is the way to go. If you are a Pennsylvania resident, you understand this constant struggle. If you feel this pain, you will want to look at getting a Hybrid System. These systems will provide protection and flexibility from any of these unpredictable costs by being able to utilize any of the 3 fuel sources mentioned.
We use Fujitsu Mini-Split units as they offer year-round temperature comfort for your home. Not only have these systems come a very long way in the years since they first came out, but now they are arguably just as efficient, if not more, then other systems. The best feature of these systems is that no duct work is needed. You heard that correctly, with this system you will not need any ductwork put into your home.
By utilizing an outdoor unit, or units (depending on what all you are looking to heat) you can create heat in any room you want.
Simply choose from Wall Mounted - Floor Mounted - or Ceiling Cassette. Another great feature with the Fujitsu system is that you can customize and control the comfort of which room you want heated, up to 8 different temperatures. Again, a great and very popular choice for many of our Pennsylvania pre-built homes that you simply do not have the luxury of running duct work for.
An installation process can take anywhere from 1 day up to approximately 2 weeks. Depending on which of the above-mentioned systems you choose from, will determine which timeframe you fall into. For a more accurate timeframe, KMB Plumbing, Electrical & HVAC will remain in communication with you throughout this process.
