What Are the Types of Heating Systems for Homes?
Published on Nov 15, 2021 in Air Conditioners
There is nothing like coming home on a cold day and walking through the front door to feel the cozy heat radiating through your house. Winters in Arkansas can be cold, with temperatures occasionally dropping below freezing (32 degrees Fahrenheit). With a home heating system, you can easily manage the temperature throughout your home.
There are several different types of heating systems for use, utilizing different energy sources and different features. In this blog post, we will highlight some of the different types of residential heating systems that you should consider for your house.
A furnace works by forcing air through a series of ducts, which distribute heated air throughout a house. The most common type of furnace in the United States is one that used natural gas, although oil, propane, and electric furnaces are also available. Gas furnaces are efficient and provide reliability and comfort.
A zoned heating system uses dampers in the ductwork that help to regulate and redirect heated air to certain zones within a house. It includes multiple thermostats that are wired to one control panel. In effect, it allows for temperature zones within a house that is fully customizable, allowing for maximum efficiency and comfort.
A heat pump doesn’t actually create heat, rather it moves thermal energy from a cooler space to a warmer space. It does this using electricity and refrigerant. Heat pumps are safe and efficient, very affordable to run, require less maintenance, and help households to reduce their carbon footprint.
Ductless Mini-Split HVAC Systems
If you are interested in having zoned air conditioning in your house but don’t have ducts, then ductless mini-split HVAC systems are a great option. They are flexible, small in size, and very efficient.
Packaged Heating Systems
A packaged heating system is an excellent option for houses that do not have space for an indoor component. It is generally installed on the roof or at the side of a property, where it generates conditioned air that flows through a series of ducts throughout a house.
