House Smart provides several options for heating and cooling your home and offers efficient hot water systems. Click on the links below to see detailed information on each product.
Central Air Conditioning – Add to your newer furnace or combine with a new furnace. Central air conditioners circulate cool air through a system of supply and return ducts. Supply ducts and registers (i.e., openings in the walls, floors, or ceilings covered by grills) carry cooled air from the air conditioner to the home. This cooled air becomes warmer as it circulates through the home; then it flows back to the central air conditioner through return ducts and registers.
Forced Air Gas Furnace – Used in most homes, High Efficiency and Reliable
A forced-air natural gas furnace uses ductwork and vents to distribute warm air throughout the house. The primary components of this system include an air filter, blower, heat exchanger and various controls. A thermostat is used to control the temperature in the house.
Water Heaters – Provides constant hot water in a large tank
A traditional tank water heater stores a large amount of water, holding it hot until needed, then releasing through the pipes. Replacement cold water then fills the tank as hot water is drained, to be heated and stored for future use. A storage water heater can be fueled by gas, electricity or a hybrid.
Tankless On Demand – High Efficiency and Reliable Instant Hot Water
Tankless gas water heaters and electric tankless water heaters are also called instantaneous or on-demand water heaters. Rather than use a storage tank, the water circulates through a coil system that heats the water as needed. Tankless water heaters are rated by the gallons per minute they provide, and the average life span is 20 to 25 years.
Combi Boilers – Used in larger homes with in floor or baseboard heat
A combination or ‘combi’ boiler is both a high efficiency water heater and a central heating boiler in a single compact unit. Combi boilers heat water directly from the mains when you turn on a tap, so you won’t need a hot water storage cylinder or a cold water storage tank in the roof space. They are also very cost-effective and energy-efficient as water is heated instantly rather than being heated and then stored in a cylinder. An added benefit is that hot water is delivered at mains pressure, which means that you could get a powerful shower without the need for a separate pump
