Posted on

When those lower winter temperatures come, you want to be prepared for them. This means having a heating system that's going to allow you to heat your home as needed, in a convenient way that you can afford. If you are looking for a heating system for your home, then you'll want to know that there are quite a few different choices available to you. This article can introduce you to a couple of common types of heating systems, as well as provide information on some of their positive attributes. Here is more for you to read on heating systems: 

Furnace heating 

A furnace heating system is a type of central heating system in which the appliance burns gas to heat the air. Then, that heated air is put out into the various areas of the home. The heated air will exit through a ductwork and vent system in the house. This is why this type of system is often referred to as a forced air system. Even if you don't already have any type of central system installed in your home, there is a good chance you may still already have a ductwork system. This makes it a lot easier to have this type of heating system installed. 

Benefits of furnace heating

  • This heating system is a common one, with many different models available

  • Furnace heating is considered to be one of the most efficient types of heating

  • This heating system tends to be low maintenance and has a long lifespan

Boiler heating

A boiler heating system will heat water, and then that heated water goes to radiators throughout the home to heat the home. Once the water becomes cooler, it then goes back to the boiler where it gets heated again and sent back to the radiators. Since boiler heating uses water to heat the home, it is referred to as a hydronic heating system. 

Benefits of boiler heating

  • The radiators heat the home without spreading dust by blowing air

  • This type of heating system can be one of the quietest heating systems

  • Boiler heating can make it easy to only heat the areas of the home that you want

  • Boiler heating systems can be configured to also offer hot water for other appliances


Now that you know more about a couple of popular types of heating, you may be able to find the right one for you easier.
