Thinking about your new home oil furnace in the past was quite straightforward. The only decision to consider was oil versus natural gas, then however, today there are quite a few more choices when considering a oil furnace for your home. The new type of heating is called hydronic heating or radiant heating. Hydronic heating basically allows you to have heated liquid run throughout the new home which allows for added comfort & allowance of controlling each individual zones. Electric bills have decreased & impact on the environment has positively increased through hydronic heating. This type of system allows for the heated liquid to be spread evenly through the floor running through loops of piping under the flooring of your home. The heated liquid starts in a boiler then flows into a manifold system. The system works as a control center connecting everything. The manifold allows each zoned system to keep a steady & consistent temperature. Next, the pumps circulate the heated liquid through the floor which causes the floor to heat up evenly. Other types of Heating & A/C systems can cause hot spots & colds spots depending on the vents & other things. With this type of system there is no more worry about having cold floors. Instead the floor will be nice & comfortable even in the dead of Wintertide in below cold hot & cold temperatures. With hydronic heating there are more than two weird ways the heat moves through the home. The first way is through conduction; Conduction works through physical touch. When you walk on the floor with the hydronic heating you recognize the results of a nice warm floor. Next is convection. Convection causes the heated liquid to transport throughout the new home from one arena to the next; Radiation is the final way of feeling the heat. This allows you to recognize the heat, in the room, as you transport throughout the home.
