8 Things You Need to Know About Heat Transfer Systems

Heat transfer systems consume the same electricity as a light bulb

You could keep your heat transfer system working with just your fireplace or your heat pump in the lounge, which means you are going to be saving a considerable amount of energy costs.

Also, the fans used in heat transfer systems utilize the same electricity as a light bulb, i.e., 27W-85W to function.

Heat transfer system are more effective than heat pumps

While heat pumps are great, they are only capable on heating up one room at a point, whereas a heat transfer system can warm up your entire house, especially rooms that are at the far end of your house.

Heat Transfer Systems save wastage of excess heat

If your fireplace or your heat pump is on in your living room, and there is excess heat, it generally just disappears through roof space. Heat transfer systems simply capture this excess heat and pass it on to other parts of your home.

You breathe in fresh air

We generally tend to keep our doors and windows closed during winters, because we don’t want to freeze up our homes. But not having proper circulation of air can be bad for health.

Heat Transfer systems reduce mould and mildew by circulating the air, which keeps the air fresh.

If you were to pair this up with a ventilation system, it brings in fresh air from outside too!

Heat transfer systems can be used in summer too

Heat transfer systems are not just for the winters, they are quite effective during summers too. There is something called a Summer-Vent Extension kit, which when paired with a heat transfer system, brings in cool air from the outside.

Heat transfer systems are cost effective

While heat transfer systems might seem costlier to get installed, you are going to get just one for the entire home, as opposed to a separate heat pump for every room, which means it probably works out to be cheaper.

Adjustable Diffusers

Though heat transfer systems pass on heat to the entire house, you can control which part of the house you want the heat to spread to. The system has adjustable diffusers for every room and can be turned off and on as you wish.

They are noiseless

Some heat transfer systems are completely noiseless, because they are installed through acoustic ducting.
