Furnace and Boiler Installations

With long Pennsylvania winters, you want to ensure your home has the proper heating system for your needs. Everyone wants to have more efficient heating during those cold months so they can use less fuel and save on costly heating expenses. If your current boiler or furnace needs an upgrade, trust one of our experts to help you make a decision on a new system based on your family’s needs and budget. At Zimmerman, we specialize in boiler, heat pump and furnace installations in a variety of fuel options, including oil, gas and electricity.

If you are in one of the many Pennsylvania homes utilizing an oil or gas boiler as your primary heating source we have skilled installers and service technicians who specialize in boiler repairs and installations. A new high-efficient system can greatly reduce fuel consumption and handle hot water needs for your home. Boilers provide a fantastic heat and reliability for older homes. Be sure to keep your system maintained and when it’s time to upgrade your system, get a free estimate from us.

Efficient Geothermal Energy

Are you looking for more energy efficient heating solutions for your home? If so, ask one of our team members about geothermal heat pumps. Geothermal heat systems use the earth’s constant temperature to keep your home warm using a loop that circulates water using pipes between your home, a heat pump and the earth. During the winter, the heating systems absorb heat stored in the ground, carry it to the heat pump which then converts to warm air with the help of the blower. Geothermal energy is much more efficient than a boiler or furnace and uses less power than a typical heat pump.
