When the cold winter air starts biting your cheeks and fingertips, there is nothing better than cuddling up in the cosy warmth of your home. Getting out of a warm bed is next to impossible when your room is cold and just thinking about touching a cold floor with your bare feet feels uncomfortable. Undeniably, good heating has the value of gold during those cold winter months. This is why an efficient heating system is a crucial part of your home.
However, heating your house evenly, especially when you have a large home, can be quite challenging and costly if it is not done well or the type of system used is inappropriate for the kind of building.
What is Ducted Heating?
One of the best systems for larger home is a ducted heating system. Although it is most commonly powered by gas, it can also run on electricity or fuel oil.
Ducted heating is specifically designed to warm up an entire home while remaining easy to control. You can distribute the hot air through the whole house quickly and evenly with just a simple click. An easy way to keep the frost on the outside at all times!
How Does it Work?
The system is relatively straightforward. Inside a gas or oil-powered furnace, the fuel mixes with air and burns. The reaction then heats a heat exchanger which warms the air and then pushes it through insulated ducts (a series of vents in the floor or the ceiling) into your home. A thermostat that is located in the living area of the house helps you regulate the heater. The sensors inside the thermostat inform the heater if the desired temperature has been achieved or whether it is being maintained. You can simply kick-back and relax.
Why Chose Ducted Heating for a Large Home?
As mentioned before, it is quite difficult to warm up as well as maintain an even temperature in large houses. No more walking from a hot room to chilly one! The ducted heating system creates natural warmth and circulates the air evenly throughout the room.
Depending on the size of your house and thus the size of your heating system some percentage of the ducted outlets can be closed off. Shutting some ducts will enable you to isolate certain areas and only heat up a section of the home – an incredible energy and money saver if you are not using all parts of the house actively.
Also, with the rising prices of energy, ducted gas heating is perhaps a better option that electric heating regarding cost-efficiency, as well as performance. It even produces a significantly lesser footprint on the environment than other commonly used heating systems.
In conclusion, there is no need to be cold or fight to maintain a stable temperature in your home. Ducted heating is sophisticated enough to meet your needs as well as simple to operate. Any member of your family can adjust the temperature with a click or switch, thus creating a cosy oasis even in the coldest weather. Just be sure to install a ducted air conditioner with Snowman.
