Last winter, I stayed with my sibling for a month while renovations were being done on my house, i needed to tear down the aged plaster walls & ceilings in order to replace plumbing lines, run new electrical wire & properly insulate; While the home was torn down to the studs, I also had repairs made on the duct method & gas furnace.
The project was extensive, messy & time-consuming.
The only time I could get the dealers I needed was during the month of February! At that time, our local weather was harshly nasty. This past year, the temperature dropped down to disadvantage twenty-five degrees for three week. In my own house, when all of us experience such challenging weather, my gas furnace struggles to keep up. I am forced to raise the temperature control & the heating system seems to be running consistently. There are chilly spots, drafts & the air becomes unpleasantly dry & stuffyâ€¦ My sibling has none of these complaints. Her home was perfectly warm & comfortable, every single room was constantly the perfect temperature & there were no troubles with insufficient humidity. This is because my sibling’s home is outfitted with a hydronic rather than a forced air oil furnace. She has a boiler installed in the basement that heats up water & pumps it through a series of pipes hidden beneath the floor. The radiant floor heating method ensures that the heat is spread evenly from corner to corner & rises very slow. She also has a temperature control mounted in each room that allows for zoned control. He’s able to save money by not heating empty rooms & can cater to personal preference. Plus, her method is more energy efficient than mine so she spends less on her heating bills.
