Because of the demands of my job, I’ve traveled plus lived all over the northeastern section of the country. I’ve rented small apartments, fancy condos plus older homes of more than 2 sizes with bizarre types of furnaces. After enduring Winter season temperatures down to thirty below zero, I’ve figured out that hydronic heating is by far the most comfortable method on the market. When compared to a forced air furnace, a boiler provides a way more consistent plus gentle heat. There are no chilly drafts, overheated attics or freezing chilly basements. The heat is spread evenly from corner to corner, wall to wall, plus floor to ceiling. Another benefit of boiler heating is the versatility. The method can be connected to baseboard heaters, radiators or radiant floor heating, plus can even link to a snow melt method plus towel warmers in the bathroom. There’s also the choice of creating zones in the home which are controlled by separate temperature controls. This allows independent temperature settings to cater to the particular demands of the room, occupancy plus personal preference. A boiler does not use air duct or blow air, dust plus allergens into the home, plus therefore maintains a cleaner plus healthier living space. As someone who deals with both asthma plus serious dust sensitivities, I care about the integrity of indoor air conditions. Even better, a hydronic heating method doesn’t dry out the air as it operates, so there’s no issue with insufficient moisture levels plus no need to add a humidifier. When it comes to cost, a boiler is more energy efficient than a forced air furnace. While this type of method is a greater investment upfront, it pays for itself through reliability, longevity plus lower weekly running costs.
