How Do Heat Pumps Heat?

money-chimneyThe word “heater” means different things to different people. Yes, you’re always talking about a system that is used to warm someone’s home up in the winter season. There are a lot of different kinds of heaters out there, though. They also heat homes in a lot of different ways.

Picking Out the Right Heater for Your Home

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

warmth-woman-coffeeChoosing a new television requires you to discuss your needs with the entire family, evaluate your budget, and ultimately find a system with the clarity and definition you prefer. Selecting a new car means carefully reviewing the options, thinking about color preferences and special features, and choosing a style and brand you love that fits your budget. But purchasing a standard home appliance, like a heating system, works a bit differently.

Buying a heating system or an air conditioner is what’s known as a distress purchase. That means it is a purchase typically made out of necessity and often due to an emergency, which means many people don’t take the time to select a system they really love. We think it’s time for that to change.

What’s the Difference between a Heat Pump and Other Heating Systems?

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

Thermostat DialA heat pump can keep you just as comfortable as other heating systems, but there are some major ways a heat pump’s operation differs. A gas furnace is the most popular heating system in the US, but a heat pump bears little resemblance to these systems aside from its use of a blower fan and the ducts and vents in your home.

Heat pumps actually look a lot like an air conditioner, and you’ll learn more about why this is in the guide below. As it turns out, heat pumps are cooling and heating systems—and highly efficient ones too.

What Is a Modulating Furnace?

Monday, September 21st, 2015

Your furnace doesn’t run nonstop (unless there is something wrong with it). Instead, it switches on when the temperature in your home drops too low and then shuts off once it is within an acceptable temperature range. However, when it shuts off, you might find that parts of the room still don’t feel warm enough for comfort. Until the system cycles on again, you may struggle to keep warm.

Benefits of a Zone Control System for Your New Heating Installation

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

Central forced air heating is convenient in many ways. However, it has its own share of issues. Relying on only one thermostat is very inefficient, as it can only sense temperature changes in one small area of the house. Central heating also lacks any sort of control over how much heat it supplies to each area of the house. The heater turns on, stays on until the thermostat is satisfied, then turns off. There is no consideration for other areas of the house that may not have warmed up enough yet, or are perhaps too warm for some reason. Luckily, zone control systems solve for all of those problems. Let’s take a look at the benefits of installing zone control in your new heating system.

What is Zone Control?

A zone control system consists of a series of large valves, called “dampers” that are installed in the ductwork. One damper is installed for each room, and a separate thermostat is hooked up to each damper. This means that each room has its own thermostat. When the thermostat in the room needs heat, it opens the damper and activates the central heating system.

What are the Benefits?

The main benefit of zone control heating is that it restricts the heating system to areas that need it. If the master bedroom is warm, but the living room is freezing, a zone control system will ensure that only the living room receives heat. This evens out the climate across the house, which isn’t really possible when relying on one thermostat.

Zone control systems also save money. By restricting the airflow to certain sections of the house, the zone control system lessens the time that the heater has to stay on. After all, it’s a whole lot easier to heat one or two rooms than it is to heat the entire house all the time. In this way, a zone control system can make your house both more comfortable and cheaper to heat.

If you’re interested in installing a zone control system, call Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. to schedule an appointment with us. We provide quality heating installation in the Farmington, NM area.
