Lanz Heating & Cooling offers a complete service package for all of the latest heating systems on the market. It’s never fun to find out that you need a new heating system, but we’ll make the entire process as easy as possible for you. We’ve got you covered even if you’re just looking for heating maintenance or repairs, rather than complete system replacement.
If you do not perform regular maintenance on your heating system small repairs will eventually be needed. One aspect of your heating system that needs to be cleaned, inspected and tested is your duct system. Your ducts carry heat throughout your home, and to every room. Some rooms will not receive heat if the duct system is unbalanced or clogged. You duct system should also be checked for leas periodically because if you develop leaks in your duct system your heating system will have to work harder just to meet the heating requirements of your home.
Choosing a New Heating System
The first thing that may come as quite a shock when you start to look at your heating system options is simply that there are so many. If you’re like most Champaign–Urbana area residents, you’ve probably lived with one type of heating system for most of your adult life. You probably knew there were alternatives out there, but you may not have thought much about it.

It’s true too that, depending on your situation, certain types of heating systems wouldn’t necessarily be appropriate. However, there’s usually no way for you to know that without getting some professional advice. We’ll help you sort through your options to find the right one for you.
You may decide to simply replace your existing system with a newer model, or you may want to go in a completely different direction with your new heater installation. No matter what you decide, we’ll be happy to take on the job and make sure it’s completed in a timely and professional manner.
Types of Heating Systems
The types of heating systems we install and service cover a wide range and we have extensive experience working with each of them. Whether you have or are interested in a gas furnace, heat pump, electric heating system or baseboard heat, we can help you make the right decision when it comes to heating installation, maintenance and repair.
You can also rest assured that we only install top of the line heating units. Regardless of the type of heating system you opt for, you’ll only get the very best available when you do business with us.
It’s also worth noting that if you decide to go with a furnace–based heating system, you’ll have to decide whether you want an 80% AFUE model or a 90+% AFUE. The main difference between these two types of furnaces lies in their fuel efficiency. An 80% AFUE furnace costs less up front, but it wastes more fuel than its 90% counterparts.
It can be tempting to go for the 80% AFUE furnace because of its lower initial cost, but you will save more money over time with the 90+% AFUE if you can manage the higher installation cost. However, either of these options will likely be more efficient than your older unit, so you should wind up with lower energy bills regardless of your choice.
Energy Efficient Home Heating
In fact, energy efficiency in and of itself can be a good reason to upgrade your heating system now, even if your older system is still getting the job done. The new models in just about every category of heating system are simply so much more energy efficient than their predecessors that the monthly savings will be well worth the up–front costs. We’re proud to offer a wide range of Energy Star qualified heating systems designed to keep you cozy on those cold winter nights for a fraction of the price of your older model.
