When it comes to the way I prefer to heat my home, I prefer the old school ways. I have a hot water boiler that is about 20 years old and it is still working very good today as it did 2 decades ago. This is not uncommon for a hot water boiler. Unlike a central heating and air conditioning system unit that you would be lucky if it lasts even 15 years, a hot water boiler can last much longer if you take good care of it and keep up on all the HVAC maintenance needed for it. And that is exactly what I have done and why I may have this old hot water boiler at least another decade. Not to mention, with heating your home with a hot water boiler you save tons on energy use. Which in turn will save you a lot of money per year on your energy bills. Especially when it is freezing cold out and you are having to run your heater all of the time. If you have a central heating and air conditioning system and have to run it really high during freezing winter months, you will see super high electric bills that may make you go broke unless you are rich and have a lot of money to blow. This is not me. And again this is the main reason I prefer the old ways of heating my home like the hot water boiler that I have. I never plan to get rid of it. When it finally breaks for good, I will either get another hot water boiler if they still exist at that time.
