For complete comfort in heating, an energy efficient electric furnace is the preferred heating system. An electric furnace is inexpensive to install, safe to operate and requires little maintenance. It provides years of dependable service. Ideal for homes, apartments, mobile homes, offices and more, the simple design and compact size of these furnaces makes installation and maintenance easy.

Electric Heat Pumps
A heat pump is a year-round comfort conditioning system that uses refrigeration equipment to supply warm air in winter and cool air in summer. View More Information.
Add-On Heat Pump
An add-on heat pump is an air-source heat pump designed to be installed on to a forced air furnace heating system. The forced air furnace can be new or existing, and can be fueled with natural gas, propane or fuel oil. The add-on heat pump replaces the current central air conditioner and works in conjunction with your present furnace, regardless of fuel type. View More Information.
Ground Source Heat Pump
Also called an earth-coupled heat pump, or a geothermal heat pump, a ground-source heat pump operates much like the common air-source heat pump by transferring heat, rather than creating it. Unlike air-source, a ground-source heat pump transfers heat to and from the earth to provide cooling and heating for your home. View More Information.
Mini-Split Heat Pump
A ductless mini-split heat pump also known as “mini split” is a type of heating and cooling system not requiring any ducts to condition the air. Mini-splits are small in size and flexible for zoning or heating and cooling individual rooms. Many models can have as many as 4 indoor air-handling units connected to one outdoor unit. Each of the zones has its own thermostat, so you only need to condition occupied spaces. This will save energy and money.
Mini-splits have no ducts, so they avoid the energy losses associated with the ductwork of central forced air systems. Duct losses can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for space conditioning.
A ductless mini-split system is made up of two main parts: the indoor air handling unit and the outdoor compressor/condenser. The indoor unit, usually suspended from the ceiling or mounted high on a wall sends conditioned air directly into the living space. The indoor unit is directly connected to an outdoor compressor via a refrigerant line. Hook-up between the outdoor and indoor units generally requires only a three-inch hole through a wall for the conduit, power cable, suction tubing, and a condensate drain line.
Ductless mini-split systems are easier to install than some other types of space conditioning systems. Most manufacturers can provide a variety of lengths of connecting conduits, so you can locate the outdoor unit as far away as 50 feet from the indoor evaporator. This makes it possible to cool rooms on the front side of a house but locate the compressor in a more inconspicuous place on the outside of the building.
An electrically generated heat source for individual rooms and areas, cove heating employs radiant heat to warm the room and objects in the room. Coined “cove heating” because it is installed where the cove used to be in older room designs, individual heating units are mounted on the wall 2 1/2 to 4″ below the ceiling, allowing homeowners unrestricted use of floor space.

Baseboard heaters are the ideal room-by-room heating solution. They require little space, no ductwork and the initial cost is relatively low, making them perfect for remodeled areas as well as for new construction. Units are easily installed in almost any kind of space. View More Information.
Electric Water Heaters
The water heater is the second largest user of energy in most homes in Nebraska. Only the heating and cooling system equipment use more. Unlike heating and cooling equipment which are seasonal, the water heater works year round. View More Information.
