Picking the Right Heating Appliance
Your choice in heating appliances may be limited by available fuels and energy costs. In cold winter areas like ours, a furnace or radiant heat system may be the only viable options. Before we begin the heating installation process, we will help you determine the most cost-effective solution to keep your home comfortable, healthy and energy-efficient.
- Furnaces: Furnace models are available in natural gas, propane and fuel oil configurations. Most homeowners choose natural gas because the fuel is relatively cheap, and it is easy to connect to a local natural gas infrastructure. Propane burns cleaner, but it is more expensive and requires a storage tank to hold the fuel. Oil furnaces are the least popular because of storage tank requirements and high maintenance costs. Gas furnace efficiency has improved dramatically in recent years. Furnaces with a modulating gas valve and variable speed blower can achieve AFUE efficiencies up to 98.5 percent.
- Electric Furnace: Electric furnaces use current resistance to generate heat in a similar manner to hair dryers and toasters. An electric furnace costs significantly less to install than a comparable gas model because electric coils are inexpensive when compared to the components in a gas furnace. However, electric furnaces are more costly to operate, and monthly utility bills can be up to 60 percent more than a gas furnace with the same capacity.
- Radiant Heat: A radiant heating system provides the best in winter comfort since warm air is radiated from a set of pipes or coils embedded in the floor itself. The typical setup includes a boiler, manifold and tubing coils evenly spaced under the floor. Heated water is circulated through the system, and the heat is transferred uniformly throughout the room.
