Because I live in an area of the country that experiences really long and awful winter weather, I know quite a little about heating equipment. Having a heating system that will not only handle sub temperatures but operate efficiently is important. Purchasing any type of whole-home heating unit can be costly. Running the heating system for eight months straight will make an impact on the budget. I’ve done a great deal of research and have experience with assorted types of heating systems, and I believe that hydronic heating is the foremost. Just as the name suggests, a hydronic heating system will depend on water, which heats up way quicker than air. I have a boiler installed inside the basement, which is linked to a series of pipes that carry the water to radiant flooring and baseboard heating units throughout the house. The heating process is entirely silent and doesn’t introduce dust or other toxic contamination into breathing air. Rather than being blown into the rooms, the heat is infused which is a much gentler process. It tends to keep the heat closer to the floor, instead of having it rise perpendicularly to the ceiling. As the warmth slowly rises, it warms most of the surfaces in the room. Because you can find no cold surfaces stealing entire body heat, we feel more comfortable with keeping the thermostat at a lower setting. The entire hydronic heating system has not many moving parts and requires very little maintenance. I am very proud of my boiler, radiant floors together with baseboard heaters, and they are exceptionally dependable.
