Heating and cooling a home are two very important tasks that are often handled by the same appliance, the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) system. This appliance typically comes in two cabinets and is the appliance of choice by most contractors that provide Heating Installation Services. One reason for this is that many newly built homes and most homes built over the last five decades make use of this system. An HVAC provides excellent heating throughout the home and keeps the space at a consistent temperature. The only downside, the home will require air ducts for distributing the treated air. These are rather bulky items that tend to be installed in the attic or through the basement of the building.
However, the HVAC is not the only possibility. Modern versions of the HVAC have evolved into the split or ductless system. This type of comfort appliance is normally known for its AC capabilities, but the split system can also be reversed so that the same refrigerant used to remove heat from the home is now working to bring heat indoors. The details are hard to explain, but the function is fairly simple. An air conditioner is a heat exchange system. This means that when the house is cooled, the heat is moved outdoors. By reversing the process, the split system collects heat from the outside air and carries it indoors. The beauty of this setup is how simple it is to control the temperature in various zones inside the home.
Another type of Heating Installation Services is radiant heating. This type of heat is similar to the old heating system used in many government buildings such as schools. Modern versions of radiant heating use baseboard radiators, under the floor radiators and wall-mounted models to keep the spaces heated. The system works by moving hot water through a series of pipes that collect any heat the water carries. These pipes radiate the heat through the pipe wall and possibly a series of metal fins to provide more heated surface area. It is often considered as the best option for heating because the heat is gradual where forced systems often have a dry heat. For more information.
