I’ve never really had a conversation with people on how much electricity they get from their food. One thing I do know – if you are going to purchase something to power your electricity, you need to know what makes it work with your appliances.
There are a ton of options for what makes it work. Some of the more affordable ways we have in our homes are:
HVAC: This is where your home-made heater, water heater, air filter, ductwork, and other home goods all work together to produce warm water.
The basic principle of a HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system is if one appliance can get hot enough, air can circulate around the room. The more air in the outside air, the cooler the room gets. To maximize comfort, the air in the air-con is typically not connected to the heat – it is usually connected to the HVAC system.
This is why you will often see a “convection heat” system. These systems use a large fan (sometimes just a fan) to push hot air in the outside air outside the room, where it will reach temperatures between 50 °F and 110 °F (10 °C to 130 °F).
The air around the room that gets hot is usually not connected to the outside air. (That’s not a bad thing, you’re not going to sweat on it.) The warm air in the air-con gets chilled, or warmed, by water and/or heating equipment. To achieve a temperature between 50 °F and 110 °F (10 °C to 130 °F)-the HVAC system has a heater element that sits inside and draws hot air in from the surrounding air and turns this air into cold, fresh air.
The cold air in the air-con is kept outside to the outside by your appliances’ A/C units. Some are fans and some are air conditioners or dehumidifiers.
The final piece of the heating system is usually a refrigerator. This can be either an electronic or a manual fridge.
Your refrigerator usually sits right outside your home. Most people have a water heater right next to their fridge. Your water heater turns your cold water into liquid form, which is then delivered to your appliances. This is how you will usually have water and ice and other beverage stuff delivered to your house at night and at dawn.
