Me and my family currently use a forced air gas furnace in our home. This comprises a duct system set within the walls, ceilings, and basement which have supply and return vents in each room. The furnace runs on gas to generate heat which is then delivered into the rooms through the vents. I think a boiler and radiant flooring would be better. With a furnace heating system, the hot air rises and hangs at the ceiling. If I stand at the top of a ladder, it’s actually too warm. However, standing on the floor, it’s not near as warm. I tend to always raise the thermostat setting and then have heftier energy bills. I need to keep up with monthly filter changes, annual maintenance and upkeep of the duct system. The system is noisy and allows a whole bunch of allergens to infiltrate into breathing air, like dust, pollen and bacteria. I need to position my furniture so that it doesn’t block any of the vents. Radiant flooring seems the wiser choice because it is entirely concealed under the floor, so it does not create clutter. Radiant flooring uses water pipes to transport heat energy, which results in a silent, clean and efficient means of climate control. I could set much more reasonable temperatures without being cold. This heating method ensures that heat disperses evenly throughout the room and stays low to the ground, where it is far more useful.
