In the middle of the winter, when the air is bone–bitingly cold, the last thing you want is a heating system that can’t get the job done. That’s why heating is one of the most important aspects of any Tacoma, WA area home comfort system. It doesn’t just keep you comfortable, it keeps you safe. At the same time, however, you want your heating system to be as efficient and environmentally friendly as possible to keep your bills down and your home warm.
At Sound Heating, our goal is to keep your home warm and comfortable year–round without the added worry of broken components or high bills.
If you are trying to heat your home without breaking the bank here are a few heating tips for Tacoma residents. Heating a dry room is not as effective as heating a room with the right amount of humidity, so consider adding moister to your heating system with a humidifier. If you do not have a humidifier the same effect can be achieved with boiling water, or exposing the warm moist air to your kitchen by opening the dishwasher before it hits drying mode. After baking something try also leaving the oven door open a little so heat can warm your home.

Heating System Selection
Choosing a heating system for your home is not easy. There are many factors involved including price, efficiency, and durability. So, when you call Sound Heating, we make it our goal to not try and sell you on the biggest and most powerful system, but to help you choose what works best for you and your home.
We offer a wide array of furnace styles and models, allowing you to make decisions based on your budget and needs. We install gas furnaces, as well as electric heaters for those without gas hook–ups. Forced air systems are also available for those with central air who want to incorporate the two with the same ductwork system.
Heating System Efficiency Ratings
The annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating given to furnaces is used to measure the energy efficiency of a heating system. Most of the residential heating systems currently available provide an AFUE rating of 80% or higher. Choosing a system with a rating of at least 90% helps ensure you get the highest possible performance out of your heating system for years to come.
There is a necessary balance in making your decision though as systems with higher AFUE ratings often come with higher price tags. So, make sure to decide based on how often you will use your heating system, the load that will be placed on it and the frequency with which you plan on having it serviced each year. For most temperate climates with low heating loads in the winter, having a super high rated heating system is not always necessary.
