Boiler is the better heating system

For the weather in my local area, I think a boiler is the most advantageous style of heating system.

While gas furnaces are probably the more popular choice, they have quite a few drawbacks.

Furnaces are a forced air system that requires ductwork to distribute the heated air. Even ductwork that is regularly serviced tends to leak a tremendous amount of air. Any contaminants within the ductwork, such as mold, bacteria and dust can be spread throughout the house every time the system starts up. Plus, as the hot air flows from the vents, it tends to rise straight up to the ceiling and only fall back down after it has cooled off. It creates drafts and temperature stratification and also dries out the air. By comparison, a boiler is a hydronic heating system. It heats up water and sends it through a closed network of pipes concealed in the walls and under the floor. The same water is continuously circulated and there’s no worry over air pollution. Water heats up faster and retains heat longer than air, making a hydronic system especially energy efficient. Boilers are not only clean but also quiet. WIth few moving parts, the equipment requires little maintenance and offers outstanding reliability. Boilers are one of the longest lasting styles of heating systems, often getting replaced only because the manufacturer no longer makes replacement parts. With hydronic systems, heat is infused into the air for a more consistent temperature and gentle comfort. Plus, a boiler can link to baseboard heaters around the perimeter of the room, radiant floor heating, radiators, towel warmers and even snowmelt systems. One of the only drawbacks of a boiler is that it doesn’t include any type of cooling option.
