While forced air gas heating systems are the most popular style of furnace in my local area, I don’t think they are the best option! I live in the northeastern area of the country, where the weather is wet, windy and frosty for most of the year! We run the furnace for about several weeks and centralized cooling isn’t really necessary.
We need a oil furnace that can handle sub zero temperatures and bitter wind chills, although heating systems are both powerful and energy efficient, they have some disadvantagesâ€¦ The blast of boiling air tends to cause problems with insufficient humidity.
When the indoor air becomes overly dry, it feels cooler and leads to higher thermostat settings. Insufficient moisture in the air can be blamed for dry skin, coughing, sneezing, congestion, headaches and longer salvagey times from frosty and flu. Another complication with heating systems is that the heat rises straight up to the ceiling and only drops down to floor level as it cools off. The boiler relies on a duct system that can leak up to thirty percent of conditioned air! Ductwork is noisy and often responsible for troubles with indoor air pollen levels. The heat enters the room by way of vents that require furniture to be arranged around them. In comparison, a boiler uses water to transport heat energy through a closed loop system. Hydronic heating is often suggested for anyone who suffers from allergies, asthma or respiratory infection because it is especially clean. It doesn’t create concerns with low humidity or make any noise. Water heats up faster than air, retains heat longer and provides a more gentle comfort, and boilers can link to any combination of under-the-floor heating, radiators or baseboard gas heating systems that radiate heat into the air. The process ensures a certainly consistent temperature from floor to ceiling. There are no frosty pockets or stratification. Another benefit of boilers is that they accommodate zone control, which helps to personalize comfort and further trim costs.
