Heating And Cooling Products

When it comes to home comfort, both heating and cooling products are important depending on the seasonal requirement. However, whether it is a heating product or a cooling product, it is important that the product is energy efficient and gives the desired effect. Today, there are different kinds of heating and cooling products available in the market. Some of them are the traditional ones while there are many which are among the recent innovations. The choice of the modern versus the traditional appliance solely depends on a homeowner and their requirement.

Let us have a look at some of the common heating products which are used in houses across the globe. The central heating system include furnaces, boilers and heat pumps. A furnace works by blowing heated air through ducts that deliver warm air to rooms throughout the house with the help of registers or grilles.

Boilers on the other hand are special purpose water heaters. Boiler systems distribute the heat in hot water, which in turn gives out heat as it passes through radiators or other devices in rooms spread throughout the room.

Last but not the least, heat pumps are nothing but two way air conditioners. During the winter season, the heat pumps collect heat from the outside air and push it into the rooms thus making the interior of the house comfortable.

Besides, central heating systems there are also options of direct heating and the state of the art heating technology which is used in many of the homes. The direct heating medium include gas-fired space heaters, unvented gas-fired heaters, electric space heaters, wood burning and pellet stoves and fireplaces. On the other hand, systems which are part of the state of the art heating technology include radiant floor heating, ductless, mini-split and multi-split, and combined heat and power.

However, when you are buying heating products for your home or business, there are certain things that you need to keep in mind. For instance, you need to note the climate of the area where you live in, the floor area, the ceiling height, the amount of sunlight received by the room, whether the room is carpeted or not, whether the adjacent rooms or the rooms above or below are being heated or not and lastly the amount of insulation that the room has.

Just like the various heating products available today, there are many such cooling products as well that will give you relief when the temperatures outside are soaring. Thus, let us get an overview of the different cooling systems available.

Both central air conditioners and the heat pumps are designed to cool the entire house. In both the units, a compressor which is part of the outside unit drives the entire process and in the indoor unit, the coil filled with refrigerant cools the air which is then distributed throughout the house. The heat pumps are also like central air conditioners, the only difference is that they can be reversed and be used for heating the house during the winters.

Room air conditioners are another option of cooling a particular room. They come in two options. One of them requires mounting of the system on the windows while the other requires mounting the system through the walls. However, in both these systems the function is similar, with the compressor being located outside.

Evaporative coolers by drawing in outside air with the help of moist pads and the air is cooled through evaporation which in turn is passed into the rooms thereby making the room temperature cooler.

Then there is the ductless mini-split air conditioners which are of great help in case of houses which do not have ducts. The main advantage of ductless mini-split air conditioners is that they have the flexibility of cooling individual rooms or zones.

Last but not the least, some state of the art cooling techniques include night breeze and thermal energy storage.

Depending on the requirement and the budget, a homeowner can choose a heating or a cooling product for achieving maximum comfort.
