Which Type Of Heating System Is Best In Wenatchee Valley?
At some point, your heating system will go down and there’s little that can be done but replace it. One of the best ways to delay replacing your furnace is to keep the equipment maintained throughout the year.
Most heating professionals will offer maintenance plans or less formal maintenance services that help your furnace stay in good condition. Your heating system is made of many parts, just like your automobile. Running it through years of seasons without maintenance will destroy the entire system very quickly.
However, just because you keep it maintained doesn’t mean it will last forever. At some point, the life of the furnace equipment will end and it will need replacement.
When this happens, you will need to know about the options for heating replacement systems in your home. If it’s time for furnace replacement, you don’t have to install the same type of heating system you had before. There are several basic heating systems that are commonly installed in homes.
Basic Heating System Replacement Options
Furnace – This is the most common choice for home heating. Furnaces can be powered with gas from the service provider, electricity, oil, or propane. A blower furnace uses a fan to send hot air through your duct system into your home. This is called a forced air system.
Boiler – Another option for heating replacement is a boiler. Boilers work by heating hot water and distributing it to radiators, radiant heating tubes, or baseboard heaters. Boilers are extremely efficient in our cold climate in Washington. Boilers are gas or oil fueled systems.
Baseboard Heaters – A baseboard heater is a radiant heat system. They radiate heat instead of blowing warm air through a ventilation system. They are really easy to install and can be used as necessary throughout the home. Another type of radiant heating system is floor heating and radiators. The radiator circulates oil which is heated by electricity. Floor heating systems are installed underneath the flooring materials to warm the floor where it’s coldest in the room. As the warmth radiates from the floor, it warms the room.
Other Radiant Heating Options:
- Wood stoves
- Space heaters
- Portable heaters
- Other fuel burning heaters
