Oil Furnace Services

For a safe, economical, and environmentally responsible solution to home heating, consider an oil furnace. Because oil furnaces utilize fuel from a tank located nearby on the property, more flexible installations are possible. A properly maintained oil furnace can potentially provide 30 years of reliable service. For precise sizing and installation, upgrades, regular maintenance, and repairs, our heating specialists from Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing can protect your investment with qualified and dedicated service.

Environmentally benign, heating oil is non-toxic, biodegradable, and contains no carcinogens. If you currently heat with electricity, switching to oil heating can lower carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere by more than 50 percent.

Fuel oil is non-explosive and ignites only by way of an oil-burner or furnace. Compared to natural gas, and oil flame burns 300 degrees hotter, allowing an oil furnace to heat your home faster than any other heating source.

If you have more questions about converting to oil heat, call (412) 793-3190. FREE estimates are available on all heating installations.

Boiler Repair & Installation Pittsburgh, PA

If you need to install a new boiler or upgrade your existing one, call on the qualified professionals from Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing to handle everything from proper sizing to ongoing maintenance. We’ll perform an accurate heat loss calculation, ensuring exact sizing and draw on over 40 years of experience to help you choose the right boiler for your home or business.

The Latest in Boiler Technology

Boilers supply hydronic radiant heat by heating water circulated through the tubing, which can be fed through large radiators, baseboard heaters, or concealed beneath floors. Because the heat is infused into the air, rather than blown from vents, these systems provide a more even comfort level.

Boilers operate silently, avoid the drafts and dust of forced air systems, and can last anywhere from 25 to 30 years. They are easy to maintain, chemically clean, and minimize risk to the environment. The main advantage of a boiler system is zoning capability. This room-by-room approach allows you to heat some parts of the home and not others.

Pittsburgh Boiler Installation Service

As a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, our licensed team participates in ongoing training specific to installation, maintenance, and repair. Carrier provides a full line of efficient and durable boiler systems that tend to last for decades, including Performance 90.

Indications You Need a Heat Pump Repair

If you are already a heat pump owner over time weathering will cause wear and tear on the system because it runs all year round. It is common your unit requires a few repair and maintenance work on your heat pump system to properly cool and heat your home. Here are a few things that can indicate your heat pump unit is having issues.

  • Heat pump is making an extremely loud or strange noise
  • Irregular cycle time, both longer & shorter cycles
  • Increased utility bills
  • The heat pump won’t start up or turn off
  • Limited heating or cooling home

Pittsburgh PA Heat Pump Services Heat Pump Installation, Repair & Maintenance

This type of system is an excellent alternative for homeowners whose homes are unable to accommodate the proper ventilation needs of other types of heating systems or do not have access to natural gas or propane.

There are many advantages of modern heat pumps, including the ability to both heat and cool your home from one, efficient system. A heat pump does not convert electricity into heat, but instead, absorbs warmth from the atmosphere or ground. The process of heat transfer eliminates greenhouse gas emissions, safety risks, and the dust and temperature fluctuations of traditional HVAC equipment. You also have more options when it comes to the location of your heat pump since the unit does not require a flue to vent exhaust gases. Schedule an appointment with a member of our licensed team!

Energy-Efficient Geothermal Heat Pumps

When it comes to efficiency and environmental impact, there is no comparison to geothermal heat pumps. Generating four units of energy for every one unit of electrical energy, these systems deliver 400 percent efficiency. The average 2,000 square foot home can be temperature controlled, year-round, for about a dollar a day. These systems can also supplement your home’s conventional water needs, trimming up to 30 percent of water costs annually. Carrier offers a variety of geothermal systems, even if you already have a viable ducted heat source or rely on a hydronic system.

Why Invest in Seasonal Maintenance?

  • Save money – By spending a little money now, you save a lot later on. With regular inspection, our NATE-certified specialists will identify and correct minor issues before they grow into big problems. Yearly troubleshooting eliminates the majority of repair needs.
  • Conserve energy – A dirty and defective system will struggle to keep your home perfectly warm, by working less efficiently and using more energy. You’ll notice a steady rise in utility bills, even as comfort decreases.
  • Enjoy reliability – By changing outworn or broken parts, tightening connections, lubricating moving parts, cleaning and testing operation, we make sure your system is in peak condition. Handling the necessary upkeep in the fall prepares equipment for the winter workload and promotes uninterrupted performance.
  • Get more out of your system – Over time, wear and tear sets in. If not caught and addressed, little defects will wreak havoc within the system and shorten its lifespan. Annual maintenance can significantly extend the life of your heating unit.
  • Stay safe – Your heating system relies on all components working properly. Even something as minor as dust buildup can lead to overheating, cracks in the heat exchanger and the introduction of carbon monoxide into breathing air. Faulty wiring can pose a fire hazard. By verifying startup, operation, and shutdown, our factory-trained technicians ensure safe conditions.
  • Protect warranty coverage – Manufacturers require professional service as a requirement of warranty protection. Any damage that is the result of neglect is not covered. A record of maintenance is often necessary.
  • Older system checks – If your system is beyond the protection of warranty coverage, regular maintenance is equally important. Older equipment often lacks modern safety features. Over time, these systems can also become a breeding ground for harmful mold and mildew. Comprehensive cleaning is essential to system efficiency and the health of your family.
  • Superior comfort – A clean, well-adjusted system adds up to maximum airflow, optimal capacity and more rewarding overall comfort.
