I never thought about the differences in HVAC

I’ve never known much about heating plus cooling.

I have had boilers and oil furnaces in our lifetime, although I never thought much about what the difference between the two was.

I’ve always kept it simple and never had any of the pricey bells plus whistles when it comes to heating and cooling. As I get older and we don’t have kids in the house, I’ve realized that zone controlled heating would be more efficient because I don’t need to heat the entire home evenly. I called up a heating plus cooling professional and asked a few questions. I have a boiler now, and apparently this is better than a furnace when it comes to zone controlled heating. A furnace uses heated air to distribute heat throughout the house, while a boiler uses heated water. The hydronic idea is better for zones than forced air, so I am fortunate to have had a boiler. The A/C serviceman was able to set me up with zone controlled heating. He also showed me how I can control the temperature settings for each zone using an app on my phone. Now, I have a smart thermostat and all kinds of temperature controls. Not only do I have better heating equipment, although I also have a better understanding of how the heating unit operates.
