Most homes in Illinois are either heated with a furnace or a boiler. If you happen to have a boiler in your Urbana, IL home, it will be either condensing or noncondensing. Condensing boilers are more energy efficient as they concentrate the hot water vapor to heat your home while, at the same time, using waste energy to begin warming up the colder water coming into the boiler.
Our professionals at Hoveln Heating and Cooling, Inc. can help you select a residential boiler that is energy efficient and properly sized for your home if you are considering investing in a new boilers system. It’s important to have the right-sized boiler because one that is too small will not provide enough heat and one that is too large will waste energy.
Although our team can provide boiler repair and maintenance, if you have a boiler that’s more than a decade old, it may be time to invest in a new one. Older boilers tend to be only 50 to 70 percent efficient while the newest boilers can exceed 90 percent efficiency, saving you money and helping the environment.

Many people are familiar with the traditional water heater. It works by storing water in a tank and keeping it heated to a preset temperature.
Tankless water heaters are a new idea to many people. How does it work? As the name implies, there is no tank to store water. Instead, water is heated on an as-needed basis. A couple of the key benefits of a tankless water heater are that you are not heating water until it’s needed and you won’t run out of hot water.
Let the water heater professionals at Hoveln Heating and Cooling, Inc., help you determine which type of water heater is best for your situation.
Indoor Air Quality
Between work and home life, the average person spends about 90 percent of their time indoors! Indoor air can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than outside air. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency ranked indoor air quality as a top five environmental danger.
A well-insulated home can help with your energy bills by keeping a constant temperature, but that also leads to the same air being recycled through your home each time you run your air conditioner or furnace. Be sure you have proper filtration in place to prevent allergens and bacteria from circulating around your air.

Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
The comfort of your home not only depends on the air temperature but also the amount of moisture in the air.
Cold weather typically means dry, uncomfortable air. Dry air can cause respiratory problems as well as damage wooden furniture. Whole home humidifiers emit water vapor to increase the humidity in your home.
On the other hand, hot weather can mean thick, humid air. This can lead to condensation on your windows, mold spots on walls or ceilings, blistering paint or peeling wallpaper, just to list a few issues. A whole home dehumidifier removes excess moisture from the air in your home.
Humidifiers can improve your indoor air quality as well as positively impact the overall health of your family and health of your home. Controlling the humidity in your home will help protect not only your respiratory system but also your wood floors, furniture and artwork.

One thing many people dread when getting out of bed on a cold winter morning is stepping onto an icy cold floor. If you choose to install radiant floor heating in your Urbana, IL home, you will no longer need to face that prospect.
Radiant floor heating can be electric-based or water-based, but the idea of both is the same. A network under the floors of your home heats up, providing the warmth your entire house requires. Our team at Hoveln Heating and Cooling, Inc. is well-versed in radiant floor heating systems and can share more details.
Radiant floor heating provides many advantages over conventional heating systems. This system is very energy efficient because the network under your floors only needs to be heated to about 84 degrees Fahrenheit in order to provide a comfortable, even room temperature.
Conventional radiators need to run at around 150 degrees to bring the surrounding room to a comfortable temperature. These systems are easy to run and maintain and give you more design freedom in your home.
Although energy costs may be reduced, the installation cost of radiant floor heating may be higher than conventional heating systems. In addition, installation time can be longer since the system must be installed under your home’s flooring. In some homes, the height of the floor can be an issue as well.
If you are ready to learn more about radiant floor heating, call Hoveln Heating and Cooling, Inc. at 217-643-2125. Our professionals can share detailed features, costs, and installation data. Request radiant floor heating service online today.

“We discovered that the hot water heater that provided radiant heating in our workshop had stopped working a few days before we were leaving for a one-week vacation and the weather was getting very cold (highs in the 20s). Hoveln responded very quickly and Andy quickly discovered the problem and was able to replace the bad heating element at the time of service as he had a spare in his truck.”
