Heating & Air Conditioning Selection

     Selecting a new heating or air conditioning system for your new log home is a decision you make only a few times in a lifetime. At Mountain View Homes we want you to be aware of all the systems available to new log home buyers. Often times, customers are not aware of the different types of heating and cooling systems on the market.

    In the Pocono Mountains, the most economical heating system to install is the electric baseboard system with individual thermostats in every room. While electric baseboard is the most economical system to install, it is not the most economical to operate. For heating and cooling with electric, the heat pump systems are very popular.

    Oil and propane are also extensively used throughout the Pocono Region. Sometimes, a combination of systems are used. For example, you may choose to install an electric heat pump system, but also include a few propane heating elements or a propane fireplace.

    In addition to using oil, electric, or propane, most new home buyers want a fireplace or woodburning stove. Pellet stoves are also becoming popular.

    Before determining what type of heating and air conditioning system to use in your new log home, let the experts at Mountain View Homes do an evaluation for you based on your needs, finances, and other factors.
