Different Kinds Of Heating Systems

Different kinds of heating systems have been available for some time now. They all have their own unique perks. Most people do not seem to be aware of them, so to help we’ve compiled a basic overview of some of them:

Forced Air System:

This type of system remains the most prevalent inside homes within the US. Air gets heated inside of a furnace (using some type of fuel, such as propane or gas), and then vents move that hot air throughout the house.

Radiant Heating System:

A wide range of people consider this system the best for comfortable, even heating. Generally, water gets heated in a stove that moves throughout tubing in the floors. Radiant heating (heat moving from one medium to another) then increases the house’s temperature.

Geothermal Heat Pumps:

This type of system, the newest available, has the best energy efficiency of any system because it utilizes the earth’s natural heat. It works like a refrigerator, but in reverse. Heat gets taken from beneath the earth, rather than put there.
