What Heating System is Best for a New Home?
Clarkstown HVAC review scores as of 10/20/23
Building a new home is an exciting, albeit it stressful, endeavor. There is a seemingly endless list of decisions to be made, from selecting a lot and exterior design and finishes to interior touches such as flooring, cabinets and counters. Along the way you will likely be bombarded with a number of experts offering you their suggestions for your new space. While this can be helpful, sometimes making the right decision, especially when it comes to the best type of heating system to install in a new build, comes down to the needs of your family.
Read on for an overview of our offerings and the benefits of each.
- Furnace: Forced air furnaces, regardless of the fuel they use to operate, offer a number of benefits to the consumer. They provide quick, whole-home heating while also continuously filtering the air as it cycles throughout your space, leaving you with improved air quality. Modern furnaces can reach levels of efficiency up to 99% and with proper professional maintenance can last for many years, making them a sound financial choice.
- Boiler: For a customer that suffers from allergies, a boiler heating system would be a strong contender. With a boiler heating system, heat comes from a radiator in the space so it is heating the air that is already in the room, rather than introducing new air into the space. Additionally, boiler heating systems allow for zone heating so each space can be adjusted to meet the users needs. Another benefit of a boiler is that they offer quiet operation.
- Heat Pump: The heat pump system offers the most energy efficient option when it comes to regulating the temperature in your home. It functions by moving heat from one place to another. From an environmental impact perspective, the electricity used to operate heat pumps is significantly less than the heating and cooling capacity that they offer. Furthermore, after its initial cost to install, a heat pump has a significantly lower operational cost and higher safety rating than a traditional combustible furnace and can last for many years with proper professional maintenance.
- Ductless: The ductless heating and cooling systems are another option that are a great fit for a customer suffering from allergies. They operate using a multi-stage filtration system that is continuously cleaning the air and reducing the number of allergens in the your space. These systems are also known to be energy efficient as they allow for zone heating and require less power to operate, creating a lower carbon footprint than some alternative heating and cooling options.
While it may not be as exciting a decision to make in the home building process as countertop material and design, the heating system you choose to install in your new build is one of the important decisions you’ll make.
We’re here to help you make an informed one that will ensure that your family is comfortable in your new home for years to come. For more heating information,

Great Service, Even In Older Homes
Our house is brick and stucco, built in 1900, and Clarkstown offered a system that seemed best for us. Three of techs showed up on time, finished the job, explained in depth how to operate the system, and left in the same day. They were polite, clean, efficient, on time and exceeded our expectations. Nothing is better than working with professionals! We are 100% satisfied with the product and the service.
Warranty Covered Our Repair
My Carrier furnace stopped working in October and needed a part. Rob, the technician from Clarkstown, investigated my problem, looked into the unit’s warranty, and the repaired was covered. There were no surprises; they were honest and thorough. The technician was knowledgeable and very pleasant to deal with. I would recommend Clarkstown in a second.
Polite and Patient Crew
Clarkstown Heating and Air sent three workers to replace my boiler. The workers arrived on time, were neat, cleaned up after themselves, and very polite. The worker who installed the thermostats was patient explaining how to set the thermostats. They finished ahead of time assuring that we would have heat overnight. I would definitely recommend them to anyone seeking a New Boiler, New Water Heater, or Air Conditioning System.
No Signs of a Major Installation
Clarkstown Heating & A/C replaced our old AC system. The salesman was knowledgeable and answered as many questions as I could think of. The installation crew also came exactly when they said, worked through the day, and when I came home from work, they were gone. The house showed no signs of a major installation and the system was working, quietly cooling the house.

Took the Time to Explain Everything
I had my furnace and A/C units replaced. The installer, Clayton, arrived on time with his assistant.
