Regardless of the size and style of your home, it is imperative to have an efficient heating system to face the harsh winters that hit Quebec several months a year.
But what is the best heating system to have in your home? With its many years of experience, the Tran Climatisation team has studied the question for you to help you make the best choice for your heating system.
Did you know that the technology used in the heat pump was invented in 1856? Since then, the technology of the wall and central heat pump has evolved tremendously. The heat pump has become a versatile system that allows you to heat your home efficiently.
The principle of operation of the heat pump is based on the transfer of heat from one place to another. The heat pump absorbs heat from outside and transfers it inside your home. Generally, it captures the outside heat up to a temperature of -15°C and now up to -30°C. From this temperature, you will have to rely on a supplementary heating system such as electric baseboard heaters. This other system will take over when it gets colder.
The central heat pump includes an outdoor unit but requires a ventilation system in the house to distribute the heat more evenly throughout the house. The purchase cost is higher than a wall-mounted heat pump, but will be more cost-effective in the end.
Forced-air heating systems can use natural gas, electricity or propane. It is usually powered by a furnace or boiler.
In most cases, a forced-air central heating system is powered by a furnace. It distributes heat through a network of ducts to provide a comfortable temperature quickly, and in all rooms of the house.
