Benefits of Heating One's Home with a Furnace
The furnace has long been a mainstay in the residential heating sector, and has remained among the most popular of home heating systems for a long time. It is not difficult to understand why, if you've ever used a furnace in your own home or have been fortunate enough to enjoy one's performance in any given setting. While there is no single home heating system that is going to suit everyone's needs and personal heating preferences perfectly, the furnace is a very likely candidate when it comes to matching the heating demand of many homeowners.
Read on, and remember to schedule service with Dynamic Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning if you decide to use a furnace in West Hartford, CT.
Use Existing Ductwork
If you use a central air conditioning system in your home, in order to cool it down during the summer season, then you can use that very same ductwork in order to distribute heated air throughout your home in the winter. Unlike a boiler, which will require that radiators, hydronic heating equipment, baseboards, or other heating distribution components be installed, a furnace can simply make use of this preexisting ductwork. That makes the installation process substantially simpler.
With a boiler, you are going to require many components that you would not if you instead used a furnace to heat your home. Many boilers will require a large storage tank. Others, such as gas boilers, may not have such bulky components, but will still require a fair bit of plumbing equipment in the system's design. With a furnace, you can heat your home effectively without taking up so much space in the basement.
Forced air heating is not without its drawbacks, but it is certainly a great means by which to heat one's home promptly. Radiant heating via a furnace takes longer to warm up a home when compared to the forced air heating of a furnace. If you have any further questions regarding why you may want to use a furnace to heat your living space, give a member of our staff a call today.
