Ductless Heating Systems
Ductless Heating Systems have incredible efficiency, are long-lasting and an affordable solution to zoned cooling and heating in your home. The unique design of the mini split system allows for installations in older remodeled homes as well as new construction. In the winter, a mini split draws heat from the outside air and circulates it into your home. In the summer, it reverses the process and draws heat from your interior air and releases it outdoors. It also dehumidifies the indoor air as it cools it. Plus, they’re exceedingly energy efficient, less visible and audible.
Heat pumps are just two-way air conditioners (see detailed description in the cooling systems section). During the summer, an air conditioner works by moving heat from the relatively cool indoors to the relatively warm outside. In winter, the heat pump reverses this trick, scavenging heat from the cold outdoors with the help of an electrical system, and discharging that heat inside the house. Almost all heat pumps use forced warm-air delivery systems to move heated air throughout the house.
The majority of North American households depend on a central furnace to provide heat. A furnace works by blowing heated air through ducts that deliver the warm air to rooms throughout the house via air registers or grills. This type of heating system is called a ducted warm-air or forced warm-air distribution system. It can be powered by electricity, natural gas, or fuel oil.
Boilers are special-purpose water heaters. While furnaces carry heat in warm air, boiler systems distribute the heat in hot water, which gives up heat as it passes through radiators or other devices in rooms throughout the house. The cooler water then returns to the boiler to be reheated. Hot water systems are often called hydronic systems. Residential boilers generally use natural gas or heating oil for fuel.
According to Energy Star, the average household spends more than $2,000 a year on energy costs, up to half of which is for heating and cooling. With a programmable thermostat, you can save around $180 per year, maybe more as energy costs go up!
Programmable thermostats automatically monitor and adjust the temperature for you by following the instructions you program into them. By doing so, they save energy thus save you money. For instance, if you program your thermostat back 10º to 15º for an eight hour period, you’ll save about 5% to 15% a year on your heating bill. That translates to 1% savings for each degree you lower the setting over an eight hour period. During winter months, it’s recommended you set your thermostat to 68ºF while you’re at home and awake, and lowering it when you’re asleep or away.
Many qualified models also come with additional features, such as:
- Digital, backlit displays
- Touch pad screen programming
- Voice and/or phone programming
- Hold/Vacation features
- Indicators which tell you when it’s time to change air filters
- Indicators that signal malfunctioning of heating/cooling systems
- Adaptive Recovery/ Smart Recovery features — control features that senses the amount of time it will take to reach the next set-point temperature, and reach desired temperatures by the set time
