Forced Air systems include gas furnaces and heat pumps and are found in ducted home. Gas furnaces are the more popular heating option in Minnesota. However, the lesser known heat pump also has its place in the Midwest. A heat pump is a two-in-one solution for home comfort acting as an air conditioner and a furnace. In Minnesota, heat pumps are often paired with a gas furnace because they run most efficiently down to approximately 25°.
Ductless Heating Systems
Whether you need single zone or multi-zone heating for your home without ductwork, there is a Carrier Ductless system for you. Ductless systems can heat anywhere from one-nine rooms in your home. A Carrier ductless system is not your stereotypical space heater. As always with Carrier systems, you can expect your ductless unit to provide more consistent and reliable temperature control and maximum energy savings. Another great benefit to going ductless is that most indoor units are quieter than a whisper running at less than 30 decibels.
Hot Water Heating Systems
If you live in an older home or a home without ductwork, you most likely use a hot water heating system often referred to as a hydronic heating system. A hot water heating system consists of a boiler or hot water heater that pushes warm water through pipes and through a radiator or baseboard to heat your home. The most common fuel used with a water heater is natural gas.
