If you’re tired of giving the same old chocolates and flowers on Valentine’s Day, you might want to consider giving something a little bit more practical this year. Yes, we know, home heating probably doesn’t seem very romantic, but – at T.F. O’Brien, we think nothing says “I love you” more than the gift of comfort! If you’d like to give your Valentine something a little unique this year, why not new heating?
A new heating system for your home is a gift that will keep on giving for years to come. And, because modern systems are much more efficient than their counterparts from even just 10 years ago, your sweetie will save on utility bills, too!
Below, we’ll explain to you about a type of heating you may not be familiar with – high velocity heating. This is perfect for older homes that have limited space for ductwork, but there are numerous additional benefits that high velocity provides.
What is high velocity heating?
High velocity heating is a type of heating system that uses small diameter ductwork to bring heat and comfort in older, multi-story homes where larger diameter ductwork might be a problem. A high velocity heating system uses a type of indoor equipment known as an air handler, outdoor equipment, a line set of pipes that connect the indoor and outdoor units, and small-diameter ductwork which transfers the heated air throughout your home. A standard thermostat controls the system.
Will it require a lot of remodeling to install?
One of the main benefits of high velocity heating is that it requires minimal construction. Because it uses small-diameter ductwork, the installation is ideal for older, multi-story homes that don’t already have ductwork installed, or where larger diameter ductwork may be space-prohibitive.
Besides better comfort, are there other benefits?
When you choose a high velocity heating system from T.F. O’Brien, you’ll love the improved home comfort, as well as the many additional benefits a high velocity heating system provides:
- Quiet Performance
- Space Utilization
- Limited Remodeling
- Draft-Free, Constant Temperature
