5 Types Of Heating Systems For Your Home

Are you about moving into your new home?

A part of what’s most likely to be going on in your mind right now is how to make provision for the best home heating system.

And while you may already have an installation contractor in mind (get the leading HVAC company in Adams, TN here), in this article, I have highlighted 6 popular types of heating systems you should choose from below.

Boiler Heating System (Central Heating System)

A typical boiler system consists of a water container with a built-in heater and circulation pipes. This water container boils up water to prepare the steam that passes through the pipes structured in a tight fashion from the water tank to your home interior. Since the pipes are metallic, they are able to transfer the heat from the steam into your home without getting your interior wet in any way. One thing to know though, a boiler heating system is rather more expensive to install and maintain compared to the system number 2 shared below.

Mini-splits With No Duct

A mini-split looks something like an AC (air conditioner) system that heats up a space. These portable systems are inspired by the need to take a minimalistic approach toward home heating. It is cost-effective and more modernized. All you need to do is choose from the tens of mini-split systems available on the market with your budget into consideration. Another great side to using mini-splits is that they offer a more effective heating solution, especially in a larger home where each room has its own mini-split. Heat control is more personal and nobody has to be an anarchy with the remote control. Needless to say, with mini-splits, there’s no need for multiple ductwork installations, a great way to save money!

Active Solar Heating System

Solar heating systems are a great way to cut your heating bills into half. These systems have a life expectancy of 20+ years but here’s how they work. A solar collector is located outside of your home. It collects active heat from the sun and then converts that to heat energy to heat up the air in a store which in then, in return, distributed through hot water baseboards.

Furnace Heating System

Heating your home with a furnace is very effective, especially if you live on the cold region of the earth or during the Winters. But…it’s quite a noisy system, with no thanks to its mechanical nature. To give you the picture of how it works, a furnace is built to heat up air which is in turn blown automatically by a built-in blower through the worked air ducts for distribution. As long as the air ducts are installed properly and the blower is a high-end one, you can minimize the noise and maximize heat.

Heat Pumps

while heat pumps are the most expensive on the list, they are the most modernized heating syst with a life expectancy of 15+ years. Instead of gas, these pumps use electricity or geothermal energy to function. If your geo-location has moderate climates, heat pumps are the best. Otherwise, the previously highlighted systems would be the better options.
