When the winter season rolls in, it is time to turn up the heat in Athens. If you are looking at winter heating options for your home, there are a variety of different options to choose from, depending on which solution works best for you.
Many homeowners choose their systems based on efficiency, but others prefer traditional fireplaces. Whichever system you choose should provide you with an abundant source of heat throughout your home. The following are the top heating options for your home this winter.
Mini and Split Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps
Many homes and apartment units are installed with mini and split air conditioners and heat pumps that provide the constant internal temperature to efficiently provide heat throughout your home. There is an outdoor compressor that is installed outside your home, and it uses a traditional air source heat pump to deliver heated air inside. Mini-split systems are flexible heating solutions that are installed in rooms and that are more ideal for heating individual rooms. Mini versions of these heat pumps can be connected to provide multiple heating solutions at once or can be installed into the ductwork.
Central Woodburning Heat Systems
This is the old-fashioned wood-burning stove that you may have seen in movies or that was used in homes over 50 years ago. If you have a central woodburning heat system in your home, you will burn wood to heat your indoors. Although it is not very efficient, it will get the job done and get your house warm. There are also sealed wood-burning stoves that will provide more efficiency. These are effective in helping to save money instead of paying for fuel or electricity.
Gas and Electric Furnace
This is a very common solution for heating your home that relies on an electrical or natural gas burner to heat up the air inside. These furnaces use a heat exchanger which draws cool air in that is warmed by a gas burner before it is blown out and circulated as hot air. New gas furnaces are extremely efficient and provide cost-effective solutions for homeowners.
