As with everything else in life, you have a lot of choices when it comes to how you heat your house. While having options is certainly a good thing, it can make the process of picking out a new heating system a little overwhelming. Which one should you choose?
There are pros and cons associated with each different type of system. For example, electric heat can cost quite a bit of money. Wood doesn’t cost a lot but it also doesn’t work as well. Solar heat is great for the environment, but you can run into problems on cloudy days.
So which one is best for your home? Bob Bies of Bulldog Heating & Cooling Vaughan says HVAC heating systems are the way to go.
- It works well.
When HVAC systems were new to the market, there were some criticisms associated with them. For example, a lot of oil or gas was wasted as the system worked to heat the home. However, those problems are simply a thing of the past. Most have efficiency ratings that top 90 percent.
- It is simple to use.
HVAC systems have a thermostat that the homeowner uses to turn up or down the heat. It’s that simple; there are no complicated steps involved. You simply push a button and you get what you want.
- It keeps your home warm.
Forced air maintains a nice temperature throughout your living space. You will not find that part of the room is cold and part of the room is warm. You will not have to adjust your furniture so that you are sitting near the vent in order to avoid the cold, either.
- It lasts a long time.
HVAC heating systems do not require a lot of maintenance or repairs. Certainly, the time may come when you have to do a little work on the system. But, when you compare it to other appliances in your house, an HVAC system truly lasts a long time and usually has a good warranty associated with it as well.
- The design is aesthetically pleasing.
Most of the time, homeowners do not even notice the heater. There are vents in your house to allow the heat to infiltrate the space, but even those are very unobtrusive. Using another type of heating system often means that you have to put some kind of “accessory” in your house to ensure that it works.
- It keeps your air clean.
You have filters as part of your HVAC system, and the air goes through those filters. As long as you have a high quality filter, the air that you breathe each day will see significant improvements. For example, does anyone in the home have allergies? Pick up a HEPA filter and see what a difference it can make!
As you can see, there are a lot of benefits associated with HVAC systems. When you look at the advantages, and then examine some of the other options out there, there is really no comparison. If the question ever arises again about which type of heating system to use, the answer should be evident. Go with a dependable and reliable HVAC system.
