When it comes to choosing a central heating and cooling system for your home, energy efficiency is a key consideration. But what are the energy efficiency ratings you should expect from different systems? Let’s take a look.
The most popular type of central heating and cooling system is the split or ducted system. These systems employ an outdoor unit connected to one or more indoor units via refrigerant lines. The outdoor unit consists of a compressor and condenser, while the indoor units are equipped with evaporator coils that absorb heat from inside your home when cooling, or release heat when heating.
These systems come in two varieties: inverter-driven and conventional. Inverter-driven systems are much more energy efficient than conventional models as they use variable frequency drives to precisely control the speed of their compressors and fans, allowing them to run at their most efficient levels all the time. This makes them more economical to operate than conventional models, which can only run at full speed or off. As such, inverter split systems usually have higher energy efficiency ratings than conventional split systems.
Another popular type of central heating and cooling system is hydronic heating & cooling. Hydronic systems use water as a heat source rather than air, making them much more efficient than air-source systems when it comes to heat transfer and comfort control. Hydronic systems offer superior comfort thanks to their ability to accurately regulate temperatures throughout different areas of your home, while also being highly energy efficient due to their low operating costs compared with other types of heating & cooling solutions. If you’re looking for maximum energy efficiency in your home’s climate control system, hydronic is definitely worth considering.
If you choose hydronic heating & cooling for your home, then Euroheat Australia can help you get the best possible performance and efficiency out of your system thanks to their 30 years of experience in designing & constructing hydronic heating & cooling solutions for homes in Perth and across Australia. Euroheat Australia understand that every customer’s needs are unique so they use specialised design software developed internally by engineers at Euroheat Australia combined with expert installation services tailored specifically for each customer’s needs so that each installation runs at its optimum level with minimum disruption during installation process itself as well as minimal running costs afterwards for years without any trouble!
When it comes to measuring the energy efficiency rating (EER) of any particular central heating and cooling system, there are several factors that come into play – including the design features of the unit itself; how it is installed; how well it is maintained; how often it is used; what temperature settings are required; etc., etc.. Generally speaking though, you should expect EER ratings between 3-5 stars depending on these factors mentioned above – meaning you could save up to 50% in running costs compared with conventional split or ducted air conditioning if you choose an appropriately sized inverter split system or an appropriately designed/installed hydronic system from Euroheat Australia! No matter which type of central heating & cooling solution you decide upon though, one thing’s for sure – if it’s designed/installed correctly then it should provide reliable comfort with minimal running costs throughout its lifetime!
