These mini-split systems provide heating and cooling. They are a great equipment choice for home additions, or selective area heating and cooling, such as one floor or wing of a home. What’s more is their efficiency. Their energy ratings of up to 22 SEER* and 10.20 HSPF** mean you’ll be able to be comfortable without spending a lot on your utility bill.
Mini-split ductless systems? Tell me more.
The advantages of a mini-split system over other types of cooling/heating equipment are:
It can provide heating and cooling in homes that do not have air ducts.
It provides independent temperature control for that area.
It allows for the addition of air conditioning and heating in homes without ductwork, and with the least amount of disruption to the interior space.
Mini-split systems are made up of two primary parts, the outside part called a “condenser” (for cooling-only models) or “heat pump” (for heating and cooling models), and the inside part that mounts on an outside wall called an “air handler”. The home temperature is set and changed by convenient remote control(s). Mini-split systems are available to operate with one, two or three indoor air handlers, depending on the model. Each air handler is referred to as a “zone”. Add as many or as few zones as you like. At All Star Heating & Cooling, we have the knowledge and expertise to do it right.
What is Hydronic In-Floor Heating?
In the United States, hydronic in-floor heating is a relatively new technology. In Iceland, Italy, China, and other parts of the world, customers with access to geothermal hot springs are a step above the rest. In fact, people have been building their houses to take advantage of these natural heat sources for hundreds of years. Hydronic in-floor heating circulates hot water underneath floorboards to heat the entire house. This water can then be used for other tasks, such as washing and doing dishes. The water is initially heated by gas, electricity or solar power.
Reduce Energy Costs With In-Floor Heating
The ideal flooring components for this kind of solution are materials that conduct heat well, such as concrete, stone and tile. The use of wood and carpets make this type of heating less efficient. Hydronic in-floor heating reduces energy costs and raises comfort levels. Radiant in-floor heating systems are an efficient and great way to heat a basement living area. These systems are quiet and clean as well as disperse an even amount of heat throughout the floor. These Hydronic In-Floor Heating Systems use flexible tubing filled with heated water. The heated water warms the concrete slab of the basement. The concrete slab then becomes a large radiator that heats the entire basement living area.
Initial installation costs, however, will be higher with a hydronic system. Once the system is installed, your energy costs will drop by as much as 30 percent per month. Let the experts at All Star Heating & Cooling provide in-floor heating to your Hartland WI home. The winter lasts too long, and the temperatures drop too low to keep experiencing the exceptionally high energy costs that both cause.
