Arguing with loved ones over the temperature in the house is a family “pastime” in a lot of households. But this can all be averted with what is called a “zoning system.” This allows you to create different temperature zones in your home that are controlled by individual thermostats.

The majority of people are familiar with what a furnace is, but have you ever heard of a “heat pump”? Most people are going to say no. Even in air that’s below freezing temperatures, heat energy is still present. When it’s cold outside a heat pump extracts this outside heat and transfers it inside. When it’s warm outside, it reverses directions and acts like an air conditioner, removing heat from your Raleigh, NC area home. One advantage of a heat pump is that it moves heat instead of generating heat, giving you more energy efficiency.
Ice-Powered Air Conditioning
HVAC started in 1902 when the first electrical A/C unit was built. Since then it has evolved, but its purpose has remained the same—keep people cool. We’re not going to talk to you about your typical air conditioning units, with compressors etc. No, we’re going to talk about ice-powered A/C units; it sounds like something from the late 1800s but it’s not.

These systems slowly pump hot water through your hot water pipes and back to the water heater through either a dedicated line or through the cold-water line, so you have warm water on tap.
