Heating Equipment Options
There are several ways that a home can be heated, and there are different features and benefits that come with each.
- Forced Hot Air, for example, utilizes centralized ductwork to distribute air that is heated by the blower in the furnace. This system can be easily expanded to provide air conditioning, humidification and air filtration throughout the house.
- With a Forced Hot Water system, heated water is circulated through finned baseboard elements located throughout the home. Heat occurs when air passes over these finned baseboard elements, heating the surrounding air. Boilers (the name given to the units that generate this form of heat) can also be used to create domestic hot water through tankless coils or indirect water heaters.
- A Hydro-Air system utilizes hot water generated from a boiler. This hot water is circulated through a water coil contained within hydro air handlers. The air handler then moves air across the hot water coil warming the air and distributing it through centralized ductwork. These systems may contain multiple air handlers for enhanced zoning. Hydro air systems incorporate a number of forms of heat off the boiler, including radiant, forced hot water baseboard and indirect water heaters. You can also add central air conditioning with relative ease.
- Radiant heat is an extremely comfortable option. It involves the installation of durable yet flexible under-floor tubing. Warm water is then circulated through the tubing and heat is radiated up through the floor.
