Types of Heaters We Install

Do you need to replace an outdated heating system or want to update your home to a more energy-efficient model? Anderson will ensure your San Diego heater installation is performed correctly and safely according to the residential building code. 

Pros and cons of different heating systems:

Natural Gas furnaces

Natural gas furnaces are powered by natural gas, allowing them to heat and distribute air throughout the building.


  • Very reliable, even when the electricity runs out.
  • Burns cleaner than other fossil fuels.
  • Costs less than other energy sources. It burns more efficiently than other sources, uses less fuel, and heats your home faster than electrically powered furnaces. 


  • Upfront costs of natural gas furnaces are more expensive than other furnaces if you have to install gas supply lines. 
  • It still generates emissions.

Electric Heat Pumps

Electric heat pumps use a refrigerant to take warm air from outside (even when it’s negative 20 degrees outdoors) and then pump that warmth into your home. In the summer, heat pumps can do the opposite to cool your home.


  • Cheaper to run than combustion-based furnaces.
  • Less maintenance is required than combustion furnaces.
  • Safer than combustion furnaces.
  • Significantly fewer carbon emissions.
  • Can be switched to cooling mode to replace ACs.
  • Exceptionally reliable and provides a steady heat source, as long as you have electricity to run it.


  • The outdoor unit is just as noisy as an AC, so you’ll want to place it similarly. 
  • Professional installation and maintenance are critical.
  • Higher upfront costs.

Boiler Radiant Heating System

The boiler heats water, and a pump circulates it through a network of pipes in walls, floors, or radiators. 


  • Even steady heat.
  • Easy to control heat levels in individual spaces.
  • Both air and objects inside rooms absorb warmth.
  • Energy efficient.
  • Quiet and dust free.


  • Slow to heat the house when it first starts up.
  • Involves extensive installation of pipes.

Electric Furnaces

Electric furnaces use electricity to generate heat. 


  • Easy and simple to install.
  • Doesn’t require connections to natural gas.
  • No emissions from your home.


  • Expensive to operate–electricity costs significantly more than gas.
  • Much less efficient than heat pumps.

Ductless Systems

Indoor units are set up in individual rooms and are connected to an outside unit with small pipes. No ductwork is needed for ductless systems.


  • Easy to install, doesn’t require a central air system or lose heat from leaky ductwork.
  • Easy zone control for different spaces.
  • Small units are space efficient.
  • Very energy-efficient, top-of-the-line units are pushing a 30 SEER rating.


  • Looks bulky in rooms.
  • Higher upfront costs.
  • Requires monthly homeowner filter cleaning.
