Throughout the winter months you rely on your gas furnaces to provide you with the heat your family needs to stay comfortable. Blinson offers brand name gas furnaces you can trust. A natural gas furnace requires much less maintenance than an oil burning furnace. Upgrading your system is not only beneficial to the environment but easy on your pocket as well. A gas furnace is significantly more efficient than an oil burning furnace. Oil burning furnaces require flues and higher temperatures because they need to be heated enough to rise up and out.
Heat pumps are a multi-faceted system and can do the work of an air conditioner and heater. The standard role of the heat pump is to pull heat from one location to another without using a lot of energy. Heat pumps generally pull heat out of the air or ground and warm an area or it can be reversed to cool the space. A heat pump and air conditioner work in very similar ways. If you install a heat pump, there is no need to install a separate system for heating and cooling. Heat pumps are also extremely efficient because they do not burn fuel for heat they simply transfer heat from one location to another.
Dual Fuel (hybrid)
The Dual Fuel System was designed to work with a new or existing furnace system. Natural gas or propane is used to fuel this system. During the cooler season the dual fuel system brings heat indoors from the outside air. A forced air furnace will provide heat support also during these colder months. In warmer weather it brings the heat from inside your home to the outside. The forced air furnace and dual fuel system work together to keep a moderate temperature inside your home. When the temperature is too low outside to bring heat in, the forced air furnace automatically kicks on to provide your space with the heat you need in the most efficient way possible.
Gas Packs are considered the “all in one” HVAC system. This system combines your gas heating and electrical air conditioning all outside the home with the ductwork running beneath the home. The thermostat is the only portion of the unit that resides inside the home. The Gas Pack system is considered the easiest to install of all types of HVAC systems. Gas Packs use Natural Gas for the heat source, but can be converted to accept liquid propane like most gas furnaces.
Package Heat Pumps
A packaged heat pump contains the same components as a standard split HVAC system but they have been engineered to all fit into one cabinet. It allows you to control your system efficiency levels and air handling options. Typically this system sits on the ground or roof outside the home. The package heat pump offers heating and cooling capabilities using the same technology as a standard heat pump. These package systems save on energy cost and take up less space because the entire system is in one “package”.
If your home was not constructed with forced air ducts then a mini-split system might be your best option. This system allows for central heat without a duct system by piping unique coils within air handlers throughout. Most central heating systems have a heat source and central ductwork. The mini-split systems have the benefit of an entire house heating system with the flexibility of room control.
Zoning allows you to control the climate within your home wherever and whenever. This is beneficial in a situation where you would like to keep a bedroom less warm than a common living space. Beyond the comfort and convenience of a zoning system you also save in energy cost because you cut out unwanted heating.
