While forced air gas gas heating systems are the most popular type of heating method in our local area, I don’t assume they are the best option; I live in the northeastern area of the country, where the weather is wet, windy and freezing for most of the year, then every one of us run the heating method for about eight months and centralized cooling isn’t entirely necessary.
Every one of us need a oil furnace that can handle sub zero un-even temperatures and bitter wind chills! Although gas heating systems are both powerful and energy efficient, they have some negatives; The blast of hot air tends to cause troubles with insufficient humidity, however 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 reclaimy times from freezing and flu. Another problem with gas 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 method that can leak up to thirty percent of conditioned air. Ductwork is noisy and often responsible for troubles with indoor air quality. 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, then hydronic heating is often suggested for anyone who suffers from pollen irritations, asthma or respiratory infection because it is especially clean. It doesn’t create troubles with low humidity or make any noise. Water heats up faster than air, retains heat longer and provides a more gentle comfort; Boilers can connect to any combination of under-the-floor heating, radiators or baseboard gas heating systems that radiate heat into the air. The process ensures a undoubtedly consistent temperature from floor to ceiling. There are no freezing pockets or stratification. Another benefit of boilers is that they accommodate zone control, which helps to personalize comfort and further trim costs.
