Furnaces are also known as forced-air heating systems and they are the best choice for people who prefer installing one air system which heats in the cold season and use it for cooling in the hot season as well. A high-performing and efficient unit will be able to convert gas into heat while keeping the level of emissions as low as possible. This is one way of rating, known as the annual fuel-utilization-efficiency (AFUE). The most efficient models now go as high as 97% and higher.
One particular preference of the team at Mica Energy Solutions is the Coleman Heating and Air Conditioning Company. Throughout the years, we have discovered that these are some of the best performing furnaces, with higher energy efficiency than standard models, great product warranty and a very versatile and permissive product range. All clients need to do is figure out their needs and this is where we come in with useful advice, not to mention with experience on how these units have performed in the past, what expectations to have on maintenance and life expectancy.
At Mica Energy Solutions, we take pride in the services we provide even up to installation. We know how important any investment is, so we will help you make a decision based on the “heating load” which depends on the surface to be heated in your house, the cost of fuel, the performance and specifications of each model. With a general life expectancy of 16 to 20 years, the furnaces we install are intended to do a steady job for a long period of time, so all of your efforts will go into making sure we have the right product for each client.
Boilers are, and will probably be for a long period of time, some of the most inspired and welcomed investments you could make as a homeowner. Not only are they efficient and ingenious in design and in the way in which they operate, but they are meant to play two roles in any household: space heating and water heating. A central furnace heats the water which is then pumped through pipes into the radiators of your home. The hot water passing through the radiators will heat them and give off heat in the room, guaranteeing heating consistency.
They work on gas, electricity, oil or alternative fuels, depending on what you choose. Some of the best models the team at Mica Energy Solutions recommends are the Viessmann boilers, which run on gas and oil, and on biomass for the commercial equipment. Another hearty recommendation goes to the Weil-McLain units which come in a very wide variety, whether clients are looking to heat their homes with the help of water or steam. The NTI hydronic heating solutions are also on our list of top choices due to their state-of-the-art computer assisted design techniques.
When it comes to servicing, Mica Energy Solutions does a lot more than simply install and take care of the maintenance of your unit. An important aspect lies with the choosing of the right model for your home. We will help you make the best choice both in money paid and energy used, by helping you figure out what size and type of unit you really need. Only an accurate analysis of your home’s features and family needs will make sure that you do not feel the need to oversize, nor choose bellow your level of necessity. A correctly chosen boiler will guarantee your comfort and will be a great investment.
We have all fantasized about our dream homes and most certainly, most of them had beautiful fireplaces. The time has come for it to cease being a dream and to turn it into a reality, as today’s options are affordable and, most importantly, efficient and innovative. Installation is easy, not even a bit as restrictive as it used to be, thanks to the new gas-fueled models. Basically, as long as there is a possibility of connection to a gas source, installation is possible almost anywhere in the home. High-end gas solutions come with control systems that let you get to the desired temperature in the room, plus they come in a wide array of styles to suit any type of home design, be it traditional or modern.
Mica Energy Solutions proudly stands behind some of the partners we have met along the years and recommends some of the best in the business of producing fireplaces, namely Continental and Kingsman. Continental is a company committed to innovative engineering and design, advanced manufacturing techniques and superior warranties, to which we add the fact that they are the only gas furnace producers in Canada. Kingsman is a name synonymous with experience and professionalism, vouching for quality products, incomparable craftsmanship and the ability to exceed client expectations.
What will our team at Mica Energy Solutions do for your project? First of all, we will ask you all of the right questions, like whether you are on the market for a decorative or a functional appliance, whether you expect it to heat other parts of the house or simply the room it will be placed in, whether you understand the rating system and what item is most efficient. We will make use of all our expertise on fireplaces in order for you to make the best possible choice.
Radiant tubes, otherwise known as infrared (IR) heating, are the home heating solution which best mimic de way in which the sun warms the earth. Their biggest advantage lies with the fact that they heat people and objects at floor level, because the heat in the form of the emitted electromagnetic waves is naturally absorbed by all physical bodies. The principles according to which the system operates are simple: the radiant energy that reaches anything in a room is absorbed, converted into body heat and then re-radiated; it is similar to being warmed by the sun.
Our best bets at Mica Energy Solutions are the radiant tubes from Schwank Innovative Heating Solutions and Superior Radiant Products. These two companies offer products which will increase your energy savings and the level of comfort in your home, will reduce heat loss and will take up very little space. The products sold by Schwank are recommended for harsh environments as they are moisture and corrosion resistant, with sealed tube heaters and protected fans. They are pretty silent and they guarantee energy savings of up to 50% for a period as small as 1 year. Superior Radiant Products is a company committed to research and development in technology and this is why they can afford to bring the innovative features such as independent zone modulation to the table.
The people working at Mica Energy Solutions will be more than happy to explain to you even more about how each system works and which one is best suited for your home or for the particular space you wish to heat this way. We will take into account the particularities of the space you want heated, install the radiant tubes and provide you with all of the necessary support services, for you to get the most out of the infrared heating system.
