Ductless Heating and Cooling System

3 Efficient Heating Systems

January 12, 2019

If your heater is more than 20 years old, you can lower your utility bills by replacing it with a newer, more efficient model. A new furnace is a substantial investment, but you’ll get your money back through energy savings. You can also avoid inconvenient, costly mechanical issues. Here are some of the best heating systems for conserving power in your Charlotte, North Carolina, home:

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps transfer heat instead of producing it. As a result, they don’t use as much energy as most other heating systems. They use coils filled with refrigerant, and they can transfer heat out of your home in the summer or into it in the winter. You won’t need a separate furnace and air conditioner, so you’ll have more storage in your home. The one downside of heat pumps is that they don’t work as well in freezing weather. Therefore, many homeowners purchase a natural gas or electric backup to maintain comfort during the coldest nights of the year.

Ductless Systems

Ductless heaters and air conditioners have an outdoor unit and one or more indoor air handling units. They’re connected by a small conduit for refrigerant, and they don’t require ductwork. You can have your indoor units mounted on your walls or ceilings, so a ductless system requires even less space than a standard heat pump. Ductless systems use less energy because they don’t have to push conditioned air through a network of ducts. Also, you won’t have to worry about dirty or leaky ductwork. As a result, you’ll avoid poor indoor air quality and wasting energy.

Condensing Natural Gas Furnaces

Most natural gas furnaces push hot exhaust gases outside your home. Condensing models have two heat exchangers, and they use the second one to extract heat from the exhaust before it leaves your home. That way, you can save energy and reduce pollution.
