Ductless Heating and Cooling of the Hard to Duct Home


You are <b>building a log home</b> or a home that you want the rustic look of the <b>floors above also being the ceiling of the floor below</b>. You hate the thought of having to install ugly <b>heating and air conditioning ductwork</b> in your new home. For you there is hope. You can still have a comfortable home and have the look that you want.<br /> <br /> The advancements in <b>ductless heating and cooling</b> has made it possible for you to have those wood ceilings, roof lines, wood walls, and everything you can think of. The new <b>ductless HVAC units</b> take up very little space on your wall. They can be placed almost anywhere with a little planning, and they are<b> very efficient at both heating and cooling</b>.<br /> <br /> The many features do not stop with the<b> heating and cooling</b>. Most units have remote controls to run the unit. Many of these units can run <b>multiple inside units from one outdoor unit</b>. These units are so quiet that you have to feel the air coming from them to see if they are running. The installation has been simplified to the point that they can be installed very quickly by an <b>experienced professional</b>.<br /> <br /> If you are concerned about the looks on the outside, that too can be fixed rather easily. The <b>piping and wiring going to the indoor units</b> is relatively small and can be hidden in many ways by using a little imagination. Colored aluminum can be fabricated to cover the pipes. I have also run the piping through rain spouting and made it to look like just another rain spout coming off of the roof. <br /> <br /> If you are looking to build or remodel and are worried about the look you will have on the inside, then take a look at <b>ductless split heat pumps</b> to give the comfort and the looks.<br /> <br /> Good<b> heating professionals</b> can find many ways to make these units work for you. Make sure that you do not settle for something less than you want. You may need to look at more than a few companies to find the one that will give you the system that you want.

Auto fan does not start electric furnace


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the furnace won't run, check the electrical service panel for a blown fuse or tripped breaker. Also make sure the power switch on or near the furnace is turned on. Check the unit for a reset button and try it. Some units have a built-in breaker or fuse panel.
If there is not enough heat, raise the thermostat setting five degrees to see if it turns the unit on. If the unit still does not generate enough heat, check the comfort controls . Clean or replace a dirty filter, clean the blower assembly (see the Forced-Air Distribution Fix-It Guide), and make sure that all registers are open and not blocked.
If the furnace turns on and off repeatedly (cycles), clean or replace the filter; and clean the blower assembly (see Forced-Air Distribution Fix-It Guide).
If the furnace is noisy, make sure access panels are mounted and fastened securely; spray squeaking belts with fan-belt dressing and replace worn or damaged belts; adjust the blower belt; lubricate motor and blower oil ports.
If the element does not heat, refer to the Heating Element Fix-It Guide for guidance.

I live in Wisconsin (so it gets cold) and I just built a 1,000 sqft detached garage with 9' walls and I looking for the most efficient way to heat it. I will generally only be using it on weekends, but,...


Hi Rob - There are a bunch of variables that come into play. If you're going to use liquid fuels such as K1 kerosene or "home heating oil" (red dyed diesel fuel without the "road use tax"), you have to consider the tank location. Since home heating oil is really dyed diesel fuel, is reacts to cold just like diesel fuel does. It begins to gel - paraffin separates and the fuel gets cloudy around the 20 degree F mark and can clog the supply lines and filter. It gets worse as it gets colder. You can get around this somewhat by installing larger diameter and insulated fuel supply lines and moving the filter bowl assembly inside where it won't be subjected to that much cold. Your dealer may put additives in the fuel to prevent separation or you can add it yourself. K1 can be added to home heating oil tank to reduce clouding and straight K1 can be burned by an oil burner (you can not burn home heating oil in a K1 heater though). K1 on the other hand, flows just fine at these temps and lower. You'll need to supply storage tanks for these fuels.

The amount of heat or BTU's per gallon of these two fuels is significant. Home heating oil checks in with 50% more heat with around 140,000 BTUs per gallon while K1 has just over 90,000 BTUs per gallon. Cost is another factor. Typically, K1 sells for more than home heating oil, but has the benefits above. Prices for home heating oil and K1 are volatile and change daily and from dealer to dealer. Many dealers will lock prices and / or offer purchasing plans.

Next is natural gas (or just plain "gas") and propane (or LP). Gas is usually delivered via underground supply pipes and propane is delivered by truck to your on-site tank in areas that don't have the underground gas pipe infrastructure in place. The LP dealer will usually supply and install an above ground tank. You'll likely have just LP or both LP and gas available in your area. Heating appliances must be set up to burn one fuel or the other - not both. It is often a relatively inexpensive operation to convert from one fuel to the other, meaning separate appliances for either are not required. Gas prices are usually fixed for different times of the year, while LP prices may change daily and based on the volume used. Lower usage customers often pay more than their next door neighbors that use more from propane the same company. Like home heating oil and K1 dealers, many companies offer price locks and purchasing plans.

Gas and LP heating appliances burn "clean" meaning that there is little smoke, soot or tuning needed. Oil and K1 however, require regular tuning and cleaning to achieve maximum efficiency. Oil and K1 will burn but not rapidly combust - as gasoline would. LP and gas however, will explode if allowed to collect in an enclosed area and ignited by spark from a ringing telephone, etc. Prices of the heating appliance itself come into play as well.

You can heat the space by your choice of fuel and method of heat delivery. Forced hot air is probably going to be your best choice, but you could choose a forced hot water system if you add antifreeze to it. You'll also need a source of water to make up any lost due to pressure relief valve discharges, etc. If you chose the forced hot air system, you could probably get away without the expense of duct work - where a forced hot water design will require baseboard radiant heaters or a fan forced hot water coil.

That should be enough to get you thinking.. good luck!
Lastly, electric heat. Electric heat is 100% efficient, but is probably the most costly to operate. It's listed because it is available - not because I recommend it.

The best thing you can do is insulate. Insulation pays you back quicker with each rise in fuel costs. Put money into proper insulation as you can. Low E glass in your windows, weather strip doors, etc.

I live in a rented home and my heat is not coming up through the registers, could the filters be clogged, we know nothing about heat pumps. Should we check the filter first, before calling our landlord in...


If it is forced air heat then you should change the filters. Also check to make sure the heater is kicking on. The main heat trunk line should feel warm right by the heater.

Back up system inadequate?


Your home inspector is bonded and required to stand behind his work. That being said, it appears that your heating unit is inadequate. Therefore, you should tell your realtor that you want a new heating system installed as part of the sale.

Call your inspector and ask him how you should proceed. You hired him to work for you and give you sound technical advise. If he is not doing these things for you, call an attorney.
