We might have convective currents set up for most of the time for cooling and for heating, but then we'll have a little supplemental heat, maybe around the perimeter or near the windows or near the doorway, with either hydronic or an electric or an IR system or something, just to give a little bit of extra heat in those sort of situations so that we don't put ourselves in a dangerous situation where pipes will start to freeze or people get cold and unpleasant if the air-based system just can't keep up, so most of the commercial scale buildings we're talking about will actually have some combination, of which they'll mostly focus on convection for the cooling but then will also have the supplemental other elements for heating when that's necessary. They don't have to; you can certainly have places around the country that just have a little bit of heating or places that just have a little bit of cooling, but that concept, the kind of average across the country, you're really talking about most places are gonna have both in at least some level, maybe only a little supplement to a convection system, but there'll be something there, typically. When it comes to residential systems, residential systems tend to be one or the other.
