Furnaces

Boiler systems, also called hydronic systems, distribute heat through the hot water as it passes through water pipes, baseboards, and radiators throughout the house. As the water cools it returns to the boiler to be reheated and then redistributed through the system again. Today’s boilers don’t look much different than the old steam radiators systems commonly used decades ago. Residential boilers are usually powered by natural gas, propane or electricity. With a boiler heating system, the cost savings is usually greater than that of a forced air furnace because it is much easier to control the temperature of individual rooms by the use of thermostats. A boiler can also supply hot water for the home.

Boilers

Ductless systems can be a good choice for rooms and mobile homes that do not have ductwork. Each indoor unit is installed in a separate room and cools that room only, much like a window air conditioner. These systems are easier to install and tend to run quieter than a central air conditioner.  Mini-split systems are more expensive than central air conditioning systems if you want to cool the entire house – roughly 30 percent more. However, since ductless split AC systems avoid cooling loss associated with ductwork, they are more efficient. A number of ductless mini-split AC units have the highest efficiency rating of any type of air conditioning system.

Ductless Split Heating

The majority of homes and businesses use heating systems that direct heat through ductwork, which tend to lose a lot of energy. Conversely, mini-splits can greatly reduce the heat and energy loss common among ducted systems. There are 5 major advantages to ductless heating systems.  Individual rooms can be regulated individually on the amount of heat produced. The systems can be mounted to a wall, to the ceiling or even mounted in basements with drop ceilings. Easy installation and the improved energy efficiency tend to be the top advantages of zoned ductless heaters. Built in features like sleep functions and timers, give the homeowner more control over energy savings than forced air furnaces.

Hot Water Heaters

The workhorse of every home is the water heater.  From hot showers and baths to dishwashers and washing machines, we take it for granted that when we need hot or warm water it will be there. If your current water heater has begun to fail and it’s getting time to replace it, consider the advantages of today’s high-efficiency models, typically rated by Energy Star on energy consumption. There are 2 different types of water heaters on the market today, the conventional cylinder storage-tank water heater, electric, gas, propane, and the newer tankless water heaters also referred to as on-demand water heaters. Conventional water heaters usually store between 30-70 gallons of water and are heated by electricity, natural gas or propane at a set temperature. Tankless versions are more energy efficient because you are only paying for the energy used to heat the water at the time of use, rather than continuously 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
