There are different ways to provide heating for your home when cold winter comes. General options include fireplaces, radiant heat, forced air and central air.
Fireplaces are used for the soothing ambiance they create and for heating a room. Modern fireplaces have variable heat efficiency, depending on the sophistication of the design.
Radiant heating utilizes heated water that’s transferred throughout special tubing in the sub-floor construction of your home.
A forced-air central heating system is one which uses air as its heat transfer medium. These systems rely on ductwork, vents, and plenums as means of air distribution, separate from the actual heating and air conditioning systems.
Central heating systems have a primary heating appliance, such as a furnace, typically located in your basement or garage. All furnaces consist of four main components: 1) burners that deliver and burn fuel, 2) heat exchangers, 3) a blower and 4) a flue that acts as an exhaust for gaseous by-products. Depending on your situation, region and needs, you can choose from heating systems running on either gas or oil as fuel, or a hybrid packaged system that can use both fuel types.
You can decide from different varieties of heating systems for your home to avoid the discomfort due to the cold weather.
