In the end, your home heating system has a direct effect on your health and well being. Actually, although it is not thought of this way, it is a quality of life issue for you and your family, especially in situations where problems arise and it has a dramatic effect on the thickness of your wallet.
A well-maintained home heating system is something you never notice, at least until you start having problems…You will first realize this when you and your family are freezing day and night and while your heating bill and blood pressure go North, your bank account heads in the other direction.
Home Heating system replacements are a pretty serious undertaking so it is pretty important to make sure you are making the right decision. In the Northeast, a hydronic heating system, or a forced hot water heating system, has many benefits, notably they are comparably quiet, clean, reliable, and allow for a less dry atmosphere.
A hydronic system on the surface is pretty simple:
Your boiler will function as the heat source which typically runs on oil or gas. Inside the boiler, there is a small pump that circulates the heated water throughout the house via baseboard units, radiators, or in-floor radiant tubing to ensure that each room has sufficient heat. Using the forced hot water home heating system, it is possible to distribute heat evenly throughout a room, primarily because the system is readily expandable. For new additions, or if you want to heat your basement, hydronic home heating systems are usually the easiest and most affordable to install.
Of course, in the event that you already have a duct system in your house and use a forced hot air system, it is very likely that changes or expansions would follow suit.
Regardless of the type of home heating system you use, the boiler functions as the heart of it. So the better you take care of it, the longer it survives and the better will be your quality of life.
In some instances, expanding your home heating system can be a joyous occasion…a new addition, or increasing the living space in your home…perhaps by making the sunroom four seasons, or finishing the basement.
