When winter rolls around, every homeowner is faced with the same question: how do I keep my home warm? The answer to this question depends on a number of factors, including the size of your home, the layout of your living space, and your budget. Fortunately, at Armor Air, we offer a variety of heating equipment options that cater to each of these needs. In this blog post, we’ll explore our different heating options and explain how each type of equipment works.
Perhaps the most common type of home heating system, a furnace works by using natural gas, oil, propane, or electricity to generate heat. Heated air is then blown through ducts to warm your home. Furnaces come in a variety of efficiency ratings, which measure how effectively they convert fuel into heat. Higher efficiency furnaces use less fuel and therefore lower your energy bills, though they do tend to be more expensive than lower efficiency models.
If you’re looking for a heating solution that also provides cooling during the summer months, a heat pump may be the way to go. Heat pumps work by transferring heat between the indoor and outdoor air. In the winter, they pull heat from the outdoor air and transfer it inside, and in the summer, they do the opposite. Because they don’t generate heat like a furnace, heat pumps are generally more energy efficient.
Boilers use water or steam to provide heat to your home. As the water or steam flows through radiators or baseboard heaters, it releases heat into your living spaces. Boilers can run on electricity, natural gas, or oil, and they come in a variety of designs, including traditional and high-efficiency models. High-efficiency boilers may also be referred to as condensing boilers for their ability to capture and reuse heat that would otherwise be lost.
If you don’t have ductwork in your home or if you need to heat a smaller space within your living area, a ductless mini-split system may be a good fit for you. These systems consist of an outdoor heat pump unit that extracts heat from the air and an indoor unit that distributes the heated air within your home; they can also provide cooling in the summertime. Ductless mini-splits are easy to install, energy-efficient, and allow you to control the temperature of individual rooms independently.
An air handler is a piece of equipment that circulates heated air throughout your home. Typically paired with a heat pump or air conditioner, air handlers can also work with heating systems and indoor air quality equipment. They can be mounted in a variety of locations, including attics, crawl spaces, and utility closets. When paired with a high-efficiency air filter, air handlers can also help improve indoor air quality.
