Energy Efficient Home Heating Systems

One of the best ways to become more energy efficient is by selecting the right home heating systems.  There are three modern heating solutions to be considered: ductless heat pumps, hydronic boilers, solar heating and electric heaters.

Ductless Heat Pumps

One of the simplest home heating systems is a ductless heat pump setup.  As the name implies, this technology does not require installation or connection to built-in ductwork in order to function.  Whether adding ducts is too costly or impractical, ductless heat pumps are one of the best solutions for home heating.  They are easy and efficient to install and include a matched set of outdoor condenser and an indoor air handler.

Both single-room and multi-room ductless heat pump systems are available.  Zoning is easily facilitated via separate temperature controls in each room.  Since ductwork is not needed, home heating systems based on ductless heat pumps are neat and fast to install.

The units themselves are energy efficient, and this type of system allows rooms that do not need heating to be unheated, which saves even more on annual utility bills.

Hydronic Boilers

Hydronic boilers have a high efficiency rating of up to 98%.  These are a type of home heating systems which can be quite environmentally friendly.  They introduce a substantial savings with respect to fuel consumption—reducing greenhouse gas emissions by a rate of nearly 60%.  They emit 80% less NOx and 90% less CO.

The units are very effective at heating a home up to 6,000 sq. ft. in size.  Hydronic boilers also take up less space than other types of home heating systems, and may even be approved to be installed in a closet space.

Solar Heating

For those concerned about the exhaustion of fossil fuels, the rise in energy prices, and the increasing conservation awareness, solar technology is one of the best solutions in home heating systems available today.

A solar water heating system can provide domestic hot water (DMW) and also may be used for heating pools.  It may also maintain low temperature spaces by way of heat exchangers.

Electric Heaters

Zoning is a known way to achieve warmth in rooms that need it without the need to waste valuable energy on areas of the home that may not be in continuous use.  For this purpose, electric heaters can be a very energy efficient form of home heating systems.  In addition to energy savings, it also allows individual room climate control for personal comfort.
