If you are looking to prepare for the winter months, Next Level Mechanical has years of experience installing heating solutions and replacements.
Our HVAC technicians can work with your current home or even newly constructed ones to determine which heating system you may need. They can then offer solutions and guide you through which one is best for you. If you’re in the market for a completely new system, our specialists can come to your home and assess your needs and recommend the best system for you.
We provide a list of Energy Star certified systems, each of which function in a different way.
Types of Heating System
Central Gas Units
The best and most generally utilized air conditioning systems are ones that do not need to be maintained on a regular basis. Central heating systems kick on and run silently and effectively when the indoor temperature stated on the thermostat requires heating.
Understanding the parts of an air conditioning system will help you better understand how your air is cooled. The components of a two-part or split central air conditioning system are as follows.
A central gas heating system creates a cycle that increases the temperature of air in the system.:
- Burning propane or natural gas generates heat in the furnace’s burner.
- The heat produced passes through a heat exchange, making it hot.
- Air from the home’s ductwork is blown over the heat exchanger, warming the air.
- The furnace’s blower shoots the heated air into the supply ducts, distributing it throughout the home.
Ductless Heat Pumps
A ductless heat pump moves warm air from one location to another without using ducts. It has an external compressor unit as well as an indoor air handling system. Depending on the number of units, these systems are either single-zone or multi-zone. Smaller homes or open-concept designs benefit from single-zone systems. Multi-zone systems, on the other hand, are appropriate for larger buildings and those with multiple distinct rooms.
In a ductless heat pump system, heat is delivered by an evaporation and condensation cycle, with a refrigerant material cycling through the system via a compressor pump. There are two heat exchanger coils in every ductless heat pump, one for condensing and one for evaporating the refrigerant. The refrigerant absorbs heat from the surrounding area during the evaporation process. The condensing process, on the other hand, allows heat to be released that had previously been absorbed. The movement of these coils allows ductless heat pumps to maintain a thermostat-set target temperature.
The geothermal system is a less common but equally effective cooling solution offered by Next Level. Heat is transferred from the air to the ground via a network of fluid-filled tubes. Because the temperature beneath the surface of the earth is generally constant throughout the year, there is always enough energy to heat your home, and it’s all free energy.
The ground loop can be closed or open, and it links to a local water source like a pond or well. A fluid is contained in these underground pipelines that aids in heat transfer.
Depending on whether it’s hot or chilly outside, the geothermal heat pump transfers heat between the air and the ground loop system, drawing heat from either the air or the ground loop.
The air is distributed throughout the house via the distribution system. Geothermal systems use ductwork to transport conditioned air inside, just like a typical furnace or air conditioner. Hydronic distribution, which is a system of fluid-filled piping that runs throughout the building to convey heat and cold, is used in some geothermal heating and cooling systems.
Portable Heat Pump Units
Heat pumps in portable air conditioners function similarly to other heat pumps. They have a significantly smaller footprint, which is worth noticing. The complete heating and cooling system is housed in a small container that can be moved around simply.
The most popular type of portable heat pump is an air-source heat pump, which includes your mini-split or ducted system. To keep itself cold, the heat pump uses a standard refrigeration cycle. A refrigerant is pressurized and then blown over in the condenser.
It is rapidly extended after that, causing it to chill even further. After cooling, the refrigerant is cycled through the evaporator coils, absorbing heat from the interior space. The exhaust heat from the condenser is diverted through an exhaust pipe and then out in a portable heat pump, rather than being released directly into the environment.
When using a portable heat pump in heating mode during the winter, the process is reversed. Heat is absorbed from the exterior and released into the interior space, making your room warm and welcoming.
