During the blazing hot summers on the South Carolina coast, the winter months are so far from your mind, you might think they do not even exist in Charleston. However, though the season is short, Charleston and other coastal cities in the United States still experience drops in temperatures that are often unbearable. The high temperatures may average around 60 degrees during winter months, but overnight, temperatures can sink into the 30’s. Although rare, there is even sometimes snow in South Carolina! Do not take your heating company in Charleston for granted, and make sure to get furnace maintenance before the wintry weather strikes. 

What is the Best Type of Furnace?

You always want to purchase a top-brand furnace. There are many reasons why some brands such as Trane, Lennox, Goodman, Rheem, and Bryant are the best. Heating companies in Charleston install these brands more than any other because of their known high-quality, reliability, manufacturer warranties, value, and efficiency. 

If you want a top-of-the-line furnace, as the heating company in Charleston that you contract for a furnace with advanced features such as:

  • Air pressure switch
  • Variable speed monitoring
  • Electronic ignition 
  • Air filtration system 

You should also look for a high energy star rating and great customer reviews of the furnace on both the heating company in Charleston’s website and the manufacturer’s website. Reviews will tell you a lot about the furnace you are interested in as well as the company you are considering for installation. 

Not every homeowner in Charleston has a furnace and although we recommend one, some people choose to heat their homes with a fireplace or woodburning stove on the occasional nights where temperatures are too cold to be comfortable. These remedies to the cold do come with risks however such as carbon dioxide and fire hazards.
