While we may not have to dig our way through a snow pile to get to our cars, we still see some cold weather around here. When the nights, and some days, get chilly, you deserve to be able to stay comfortable. Maybe you’ve been working with a portable heater up until now and you are finally ready to upgrade to a whole-house system for your heating in Orlando, FL. If that is the case, then we would love to give you some information on the different systems to choose from.
You want a good heater in your house but you shouldn’t stop there. Read on to discover what perks each type of heater offers so you know which option is the best to meet your needs.
Furnaces are some of the “old guard” heaters meaning that these systems have been around for a long time. Modern furnaces are far more effective and efficient than their predecessors though! You can select a natural gas furnace or an all-electric furnace to heat your home.
These systems are known for providing reliable and powerful heat throughout your home. Furnaces are a forced-air type of system though so they do require ductwork and, in the case of a natural gas system, a gas line connection.
Heat Pump Mini Splits
Heat pump mini splits are highly convenient for providing home comfort. Let us explain why!
If you need a heater and a whole-house air conditioning system as well, then a heat pump may be the perfect fit for your needs. This is because these systems are reserve their flow of refrigerant, allowing them to draw heat into the home in the winter and pull it out during the summer!
Heat pumps take up less space than a furnace but are still a great resource for home heating, especially in places where wintertime is milder. If you have ductwork and are looking for a new HVAC system overall, this could be a great solution.
A ductless system is a type of heat pump mini split that, as you probably guessed, doesn’t need ducts to work! Ductless systems connect multiple air handlers to a single outdoor unit which allows them to provide great comfort without the need for a duct system.
Ductless systems can improve your indoor air quality, offer quality comfort year-round, and even help you save space and energy!
Zone Control Systems
Lastly, let’s talk zone control systems. Zone control is great for any home that experiences more severe temperature discrepancies, in the case of a home where one side gets sunlight all day and the other gets next to none. With a zone control system (which can be provided by a ductless system too) you can heat the parts of the home that need it, rather than wasting energy on areas that are already plenty warm. This helps you control the ability to cool your home efficiently in the summer too.
