When the weather warms up or cools down, we have systems in the home which can help make the temperature more comfortable. With this being said, there are many ways in which we can maximise the temperature in the home, without having to use the central heating or our AC systems.

For as many energy saving tips as there are however, sometimes we just need those systems to help create the perfect temperature in the homes and businesses. The key to using these systems is efficiency, and there is one option which outweighs the rest.

Why Heating Efficiency Matters

Efficiency matters for a couple of reasons, all based around energy usage. For those using these systems, be it at home or in for a business, energy costs money, and that is why efficiency is so important. Additionally an overuse of energy is something which we should all be looking to avoid, as it does great damage to the planet. This is why we must ensure efficiency in the systems which we are using.

What Dictates Heating Efficiency?

There are multiple factors which impact the level of efficiency which we get with our heating and cooling systems. The first is the type of system which we are using, as each offers varying levels of efficiency. The second factor is the make and model of the system we are using— each of which comes with its own energy efficiency rating. And the final point is the quality of the system. This last point is why regular maintenance is so important. A well running system is always more efficient than one which has repairs which are needed.

The Best and Most Efficient Option  

For those who operate businesses or have homes in climates which change greatly with the seasons, a system which provides both heating and cooling is essential. If we are speaking about efficiency then the only option is a ducted heating and cooling system. This is a central system which has ductwork running from it, going into various areas of the building to provide both cool and warm air, as is needed.

This is both the most energy efficient air conditioner and the most efficient heater. Interestingly the process which the central system uses to create warm and cool air is actually the same, albeit in reverse depending on what kind of temperature is required. These systems operate to a higher quality, they are less likely to falter and they have a long life span. Beyond this we are able to use the system to zone off certain areas, which increases efficiency and leads to a great reduction in wastage. The more wastage there is, the more energy we are using without effect.

An additional benefit of a single system which can cater to both cooling and heating, is that it only requires a single purchase and a single installation, which helps to save money on setup costs for the business or the homeowner.
