Philadelphia Residential Electrical Heating

Not long after Edison produced the lightbulb, electrical heaters started their evolution in 1905. Electrical heating was popularized throughout the 1960s, and by the end of the 20th century it was the preferred method of heating in most homes.

This cost-effective, safe, and efficient heating option is in most Philadelphia homes, and as electrical heating specialists, we’re well versed in the installation, maintenance, and repair of any electrical home heating systems.

With years of experience under our belt and a drive to do our best on any assignment no matter how small, Hughes Electric Inc. has all of your electrical heating needs covered.

Baseboard Heating

While baseboard heaters were created as a supplemental heat source, many homes and apartments in Philadelphia use them as the sole heating option. If you’re interested in installing baseboard heating in your home, our crew can work quickly and safely to accomplish the task.

If you are having problems with your baseboard heater, you’re going to need professionals on the job immediately to lessen the potential of electrical fire. Common reasons behind malfunctioning baseboard heaters can be related to thermostat, or improper cleaning, but other times there’s a bigger problem at hand.

Radiant Heating

Radiant heating is generally installed during the home construction process, but can be installed after-the-fact as well. It works with heated mats, or tubes that circulate heated water, beneath wall or floor surfaces. Those luxurious heated floors you’re eyeing? Radiant heat.

Radiant floor heating is energy efficient and eco-friendly, due to the insulation surrounding the heating system itself. Philadelphia homes with radiant heating enjoy lower bills, and a higher home value.

Like with any other heating system, if you’re experiencing problems with your radiant heating, a professional opinion is called for. Cables and mats can be damaged, when with hydronic systems, air bubbles can develop. The last thing you want is to ruin your floors with faulty electrical!

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps take heat from outdoors and transfer it indoors. This system can also be used to cool a home, removing heat from indoors during warmer months. Due to the use of natural resources, these heating systems are better for energy bills, and expel cleaner air into your home.

If your heat pump isn’t doing its job, it’s not always simple to tell what the problem is. Hughes Electric Inc. will determine if the problem is with the fan itself, a blockage, or something else entirely. Then, we’ll fix it up for you and get you warm (or cool) once again.
