Mitsubishi Mini-Split Project Case Study

April 2, 2018

The residents of Dayton, OH and surrounding areas can now enjoy comfort in their homes all season round by using Mitsubishi mini-split systems. The system is eco-friendly, easy to install, and saves on energy bills. Gem City Catfé recently decided to convert a historic home into a cat café to include a cat lounge, an espresso bar, and an event area. Historic properties have many design challenges. The engineer designed a traditional HVAC system which uses sheet metal ductwork to move conditioned air to the required space. This was a problem for Gem City Catfé. The cost of installation was so high, so Butler offered an alternative solution of installing a ductless system made by the Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating. This reduced the install costs by half while still maintaining the historic property that Gem City Catfé fell in love with. The design also allowed for each space in the property to have a dedicated air handler. Since three spaces were meant for cats, it was necessary for those areas not to mix airstreams with the client areas. This design also made it possible for temperatures to be controlled differently in each area. A Hyperheat solution was also incorporated...

Whats the Difference Between a Boiler & a Furnace?

December 29, 2017

A lot of people use the word furnace when they are talking about a boiler, but a boiler and furnace are two different things. Both are used to heat a place, but the similarity ends there. What’s the Difference? The main difference between a furnace and a boiler is that a boiler uses hot water or steam to heat your building while a furnace uses warm air to produce heat. Boilers and furnaces also have different ways of sending heat through a house. How does a furnace work? A furnace heats up air, and then uses a blower to force the hot air through ducts. The warm air enters the home through vents or registers. It’s very common for older homes to be heated with a furnace. Older furnaces were often heated with coal and wood. Modern furnaces can run on electricity, gas, or propane. It’s also quite common for furnaces to share their ducts with air conditioners to avoid having to take up extra space. How does a boiler work? A traditional boiler heats up water that circulates around its combustion chamber. This hot water is then sent through small hot water pipes that heat baseboards, cast iron radiators, or radiant floor heating systems. The water returns back to...
