We have a long heating season here in Greater Boston. Your furnace may need to “pop on” from time to time as early as September…and keep going until May. And we all know how challenging January and February can be!

Trust the Central Cooling team to keep your family as warm and comfortable as they deserve.  Don’t let it get to the point where you have an emergency in the middle of a cold winter’s night!


Today’s “variable speed” technology in gas furnaces uses far less fuel and are whisper-quiet. Many homeowners have found it’s more cost-efficient to replace an existing furnace even if it is only 10 years old! We’ll help you select a gas furnace best suited for your home and budget. We are a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer.

While boilers are not the most efficient heating systems around, many of this area’s homes were built with them…and it may make financial sense to simply replace a boiler with a new boiler. Like furnaces, recent advances in home heating technology have made today’s boilers more cost-efficient than ever — up to 96%!

Again a technology which has made great advances in recent years, heat pumps are super-efficient and quiet for heating apartments and condos — and even for a well-insulated home. Instead of using natural gas or oil, they run on electricity. The great thing about heat pumps is that they can also supply air conditioning — without significant additional cost!

A ductless system is a type of heat pump…only here there is no need for ducting. It’s an ideal solution for small homes or houses where installation of ductwork would be impractical. A ductless system may also make the most sense for condos and smaller homes, as well as for specific areas in larger houses—such as additions, sunrooms, finished attics or garages. They can air condition in summer, too!  Visit our ductless section.

This is a super-energy-efficient heating system: a combination of a furnace and a heat pump tied together by an intelligent control unit. Sensing the conditions outside and inside your home, the controller turns on the heat pump when some warmth is needed on milder fall, winter and spring days, and turns on the furnace in the colder days of winter. Your energy savings can be astonishing, and currently there are some great rebates for installation of these systems.

Usually a supplemental heating method, radiant heat takes the warmth from a boiler and distributes it under the floors in some or all rooms of a home. It can be a terrific way of keeping your family comfortable in certain conditions and uses.
