We spent nearly a year touring different homes on the market, searching for the perfect style, location and price.
The process was time-consuming and rather discouraging.
We were tired of renting and anxious to start building equity. We were anxious to get out of the city environment and have some privacy and an outdoor area. Our goal was to purchase a home and then start a family. When we finally found an affordable house that met all of our criteria, I wasn’t thrilled with the heating system. I considered the boiler as a drawback and expected it to be loud, dirty and require a lot of upkeep. I worried our monthly heating bills would destroy our budget. After one year in the house, I totally changed my opinion. We are located in an area where sub zero conditions are a regular part of life. The cold temperatures and wind chill are downright brutal. The boiler has no trouble keeping our home perfectly comfortable no matter what the weather is like outside. The system operates silently and is especially clean. Because the heat is radiated into the air rather than blown in, it doesn’t introduce contaminants such as dust, spores and bacteria. The boiler is a hydronic heating system, using water to convey heat energy. It’s able to warm up the house very quickly and doesn’t overly dry out the air. Plus, the boiler allows for the set up of zone control. We can cater temperature to preference in each room. We aren’t forced to heat empty rooms to the perfect temperature.
