The Heating Systems We Offer

We offer a variety of heating systems so that you can always keep your Homer Glen home warm throughout the winter.


Forced-air heating systems like furnaces are the most popular heating systems across the country by far, but that doesn’t mean they’re the only viable option on the market. Boilers are a tried and true form of heating your home that’s been used across the country for decades. You might think that this type of system is outdated, but in reality, it’s a perfect system for the cold temperatures we face here in Homer Glen. If you’re interested in a boiler, you can come to our team and we can walk you through the process.

Ductless Systems

Are you looking for flexible and convenient heating in your home? Then a ductless heating system is right for you. Ductless systems allow you to “zone” your home without the extensive process of retrofitting a zone-controlled heating system in your home. Ductless systems utilize individual air handlers autonomous from each other to heat your home. That means you can install these units where you need them the most. These units are convenient because they’re heat pumps, meaning that they can provide you with heating in winter and cooling in summer.


When someone says the word “heater” you’re probably thinking of a forced-air heating system like a furnace. These are the most popular heating system across the country because they’re reliable, cost-effective, and energy-efficient. If you already have preexisting ductwork in your home, a furnace system can be a great option to keep your house warm. You can contact our team of professionals for more details.

Radiant Heating Systems

Radiant heating systems are the antithesis of forced-air heating systems—instead of circulating heated air through a network of ducts, radiant heating systems either use electricity or heated water to radiate heat from solid objects in your home. This method of heating utilizes a network of coils in your walls or subflooring to heat your home. Many people prefer this method of heating because they find this heat more comfortable than forced air—it feels more like the sun shining down on you on a hot day.
